A Message from John

Growing up in a family of seven kids, I learned at an early age about the importance of standing up to be heard and in fighting for what you believe.

I worry greatly about the America we are passing on to our children. Overwhelming debt, unsustainable spending, a weak national security, and a government bureaucracy that believes the best fix to any problem is an expanded federal one.

As Central New York’s representative in Congress, I’ve been fighting through partisan gridlock to change that. I’m focused on growing the economy to create jobs and keeping Americans safe in a dangerous world.

I’ll continue to be a strong voice for our community in Washington. Please support me as your Congressman for New York’s 24th Congressional District.

  • Joe Biden Shares the Truth: Dana Balter’s Radical Healthcare Plan Will Raise Taxes on Middle Class

    August 7th, 2020

    SYRACUSE, NEW YORK — Katko for Congress today released a new television advertisement, in which former Vice President and Democratic nominee for President, Joe Biden, shares the truth about the cost of Dana Balter’s Medicare-for-All scheme.


    Balter, an ardent support of Medicare-for-All, dishonestly claimed she won’t raise taxes on Central New Yorkers.  But, Joe Biden is upfront with voters: Medicare-for-All is a government takeover of healthcare that will cost 30 trillion dollars to implement, and raise taxes on the middle class.


    “Dana Balter’s radical government takeover of healthcare is too dangerous for even Joe Biden,” said Katko for Congress Campaign Manager Tom Haag.  “While Balter continues to lie about her plan to raise taxes, Joe Biden has shared the truth: Balter’s plan is preposterous, will raise taxes on middle class people, and have Washington dictating that you cannot keep your healthcare plan.  Dana Balter is way too extreme.”


    The ad is available here.  It will begin airing immediately on area broadcast and cable.

  • Dana Balter Caught in Another Lie

    July 25th, 2020


    SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – 
    Dishonest Dana Balter has been caught in another lie. This time, about her plan to raise taxes on families in Central New York to fund her radical government takeover of healthcare.  Katko for Congress today released a new television advertisement exposing Balter, behind closed doors, explaining how CNY families will have an increase in taxes if she is elected.


    Recently, Balter tried to tell voters she doesn’t want to raise their taxes. Unfortunately for Balter, she’s made her position blatantly clear behind closed doors, on a far-left podcast, and in local print: She will raise your taxes.  Dana Balter has long pledged to raise taxes on working class families to fund Medicare-for-All, which would cost trillions of dollars and raise taxes on every American. 


    Katko for Congress Campaign Manager Tom Haag said, “Dana Balter tried to hide her extreme agenda from Central New Yorkers, but was again caught lying.  Balter has said again and again that she wants to raise taxes on every family in our community.  Dana Balter is not only dangerous, but dishonest.  Voters simply cannot trust Dana Balter.”


    “Another Lie” will begin airing immediately on area broadcast and cable.  It can be accessed here.

  • Katko for Congress Reminds CNY: Dana Balter is Dangerous, Dishonest

    July 18th, 2020

    Syracuse, New York – Katko for Congress today released its second television advertisement, reminding Central New Yorkers about Dana Balter’s support of dangerous policies, and exposing her dishonest tactics.

    The ad highlights Balter’s dangerous support of trillions of new dollars in taxes, including Medicare-for-All, which would raise taxes on all Americans.  Balter unabashedly admits she would implement a new tax on every family to pay for the scheme — despite not paying her own taxes in Florida, and receiving a warrant for failure to do so.  The ad also emphasizes Balter’s support of extreme liberal policies, like Albany’s dangerous bail reform, which has been criticized by members of both parties for endangering our communities by releasing violent criminal defendants on pretrial release.


    Additionally, the ad fills in voters on what Dana Balter has been up to since her inaugural, failed run for Congress: Leading protests with her radical-left group of activists, and paying herself from her campaign. Already, Balter has been caught making dishonest claims in her recently released negative ad.


    The ad will begin airing immediately on area broadcast and cable.  It can be accessed here.  It will air simultaneously alongside “Most Bipartisan,” which was released last week and focuses on Congressman John Katko’s commitment to bipartisanship in Washington.
