Scott Murphy 20th CD Candidate fights for
the best interests of Upstate NY
On Thursday, Scott Murphy officially launched his campaign in the 20th CD. At the launch, held as his campaign headquarters in Glens Falls, Scott said that he looks forward to “meeting even more voters all across our district, listening to their concerns, and discussing my track record of helping to create good paying jobs in Upstate New York.”

NYSDC Chair June O’Neill praised Scott, calling him a leader who will “fight for the best interests of Upstate residents” and noting that “For more than 15 years, he has served on the front lines of the fight to create jobs, strengthen communities, and find new ways to meet old challenges.”

Scott’s first TV ad, “Sunday Dinner,” hit the airwaves this week as well. In it he introduces voters to his family (his wife Jill and their three kids – Simone, Lux and Duke) and reiterates his commitment to keeping and creating jobs in Upstate New York.
