Following is the text of a statement by New York State Assemblyman Karl Brabenec (R), endorsing Jimmy O'Donnell (R,C,Ref) for U.S. Congress:
"Jimmy's life story is about service to his community and country. He protected all of us as a state trooper. He helped us, as MTA chief, during and after the 9/11 attacks. He improved our quality of life and kept taxes and spending stable as Deputy County Executive and as a County Legislator. His dedication and experience make him an outstanding choice to be our next Congressman. Jimmy has my full support!"
