Dave Clegg Raises $220,000 in First Fundraising Quarter
Only candidate with 3 decades in NY’s 19th Congressional District Receives broad Local Support
(Kingston, NY): Today, NY19 Democratic Congressional candidate Dave Clegg announced that he raised over $220,000 in his first quarter in the race against John Faso. Clegg, a 30+ year resident of Ulster County and long-time community leader, has about $180,000 on hand as he begins his campaign for the Democratic nomination.
“John Faso first voted to make healthcare unaffordable for more than 20 million Americans and now his party is trying to jam through tax cuts for the top 1%,” said Clegg. “It’s time we stood up for the little guy again and focus on growing our economy so that it works for everyone.”
A Woodstock homeowner, Dave Clegg is the only Democratic candidate who has lived in the district for the last 35 years. In the few short months since announcing, he has activated a grassroots army of supporters thanks to his deep roots and years of activism in the Hudson Valley community.
David Clegg has worked for civil rights and economic justice as an attorney for nearly 40 years. He is also an ordained Deacon in the Methodist church and serves as chair of the Ulster County Human Rights Commission. He also serves on the boards of Family of Woodstock, Midtown Rising, and Caring Hands Soup Kitchen.
