John Faso urges support of Congressional-elect Antonio Delgado
VALATIE — Congressman John Faso will not return to our nation’s capital when the new congress convenes in 2019. He addressed his supporters shortly after 11 p.m. Tuesday night when he delivered a concession speech.
“He’s now our congressman-elect and I told him I’ll do everything I can to help him in transition of our office,” Congressman Faso said, referring to the Democratic political newcomer Antonio Delgado. During his speech he promised to support Delgado and urged his supporters to do the same.
“This is the democratic process that we have to honor and respect and give our new member of Congress the support that he will need in order to conduct his duties,” Faso added.
During his speech he took time to talk to the press about his accomplishments.
“One of the things I’m most proud of, just two weeks ago, going to a bill-signing ceremony at the White House for major opioid legislation that I had a major hand in crafting a significant part of that to prevent the infiltration of Chinese fentanyl and other substances coming in through the U.S. Postal Service in to poison our communities and harm our citizens,” Faso said.
