Day 1

Yesterday Francis X. Becker Jr. (Nassau County Legislator 6th district) officially announced his candidacy in the race for the Congressional Seat in the 4th District of New York. It was an exciting day to say the least. Fran was introduced by Mayor Brian Curran (R-Lynbrook, also the republican state assembly candidate) and his brother Hilary Becker who is a Lynbrook Trustee. Then Fran came out and pumped up the crowd with his announcement. His message is simple: Create Jobs in Nassau County, lower taxes and preserve the American Dream for the people of the 4th Congressional district. He put it out there that he is a local businessman and understands how to create jobs; He is a Certified Financial Planner and understands fiscal responsiblity and will help to restore that in Washington. He is a life long resident of the 4th Congressional District, he grew up here, raised his family here and understands the needs and concerns of his constituents. Our residents have had little to no representation in Washington over the past 14 years and now, in a time when they need it most, their representative is in the Hamptons rather than working hard in the district where she should be. It's time for this to end. In his speech Fran made it clear that he is going to be there for the people of the fourth district. He has faithfully served our area as a friend, neighbor, businessman, certified financial planner and will continue to do so as our Congressman. Fran drove home the point that it is time for change in Washington and the time is now.
He was surrounded by his large family and his many friends as he finished up his formal announcement and present in the crowd were his many collegues from the legislature as well as prominent county officials who have thrown their support behind him. The impact that he has had on the many people that he has helped and served was evident by the large turnout at the Becker Planning office yesterday evening. The residents of the 4th District deserve the best, Fran Becker is the best. Last night was the start of great things to come in the 4th District. We certainly have some exciting weeks and months months ahead of us. As Fran said in his speech yesterday, "It's time to roll up our sleeves and get to work!"
