SYRACUSE, NY – A new ad released today by Katko for Congress features Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon, and highlights Congressman Katko’s work across party lines to deliver for CNY during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
McMahon, who has worked tirelessly to manage the local response to COVID-19, and kept infection rates low in Central New York, praises Congressman Katko for putting politics aside to deliver for Central New York during the crisis. McMahon states, “Congressman John Katko put aside all politics.”
McMahon continues, “This virus doesn’t choose political parties, and thankfully Congressman Katko has not been choosing parties when it comes to the response. And he’s been there for Onondaga County and all of Central New York.”
When COVID-19 hit, Congressman Katko got immediately to work for Central New York, successfully delivering PPE, testing, and millions of dollars in direct aid to local hospitals and healthcare providers. He secured stimulus payments for working families and relief to small businesses, allowing businesses to remain open and keep workers on payroll.
The thirty-second spot also features local and national news reports on Katko’s bipartisanship. Katko has been repeatedly recognized by independent groups for his willingness to work across party lines, most recently ranked the second most bipartisan member in Congress by the nonpartisan Lugar Center.
The ad is available here. It will begin airing immediately on area broadcast and cable, and on digital platforms.
