Valatie, NY – Today, Faso for Congress released two new ads entitled ‘Driven’ and ‘Empowering.’ The ads began airing in the 19th district this morning.
“For more than 30 years John Faso has been a forceful advocate for Upstate New York families,” said Joe Gierut, communications director for the Faso campaign. “As one of the most bipartisan members of Congress, John has been able to get results for veterans, farmers and New York families on some of the issues that matter most.”
Mary Frances Faso, John’s wife, narrates ‘Driven’. It details the work ethic that John has carried with him his entire life, and how his priority in public service has been to develop solutions to our communities’ toughest challenges.

‘Empowering’ is narrated by Lois Goblet, a Schoharie County resident whose family has experienced the first-hand effects of opioids. The ad highlights John’s work to combat the opioid crisis, most notably through the STOP Act, which will crack down on fentanyl being shipped through the international mail.
