Kellie Greene vs. Doheny: June 26 GOP primary for Bill Owens’ seat in Congress
Open-minded, engaged, on the prowl for Quality!
By Gordon Woodworth
No Games... No Gimmicks...
Chronicle News Editor As of Jan. 1, the Glens Falls-Lake George region will be shifted out of current Congressman Chris Gibson’s district to the new 21st Congressional currently represented by Democrat Bill Owens of Plattsburgh. The district spans 16,500 square miles, from Stillwater in Saratoga County north to the Canadian border and northwest to the Thousand Islands. In our March 29 issue, we interviewed Congressman Owens. Last month, we interviewed Matt Doheny of Watertown, who is challenging Mr. Owens for a second time and has locked up the Conservative and Independence lines for this November. He also has been endorsed by all 11 Republican County chairmen in the new district. But Mr. Doheny is being challenged for the Republican nomination by Kellie Greene of Sackets Harbor, a global trade consultant and seminary student who was

Greene seeks GOP nod for Congress run From page 3
born and raised in Oswego. She will face Mr. Doheny in the June 26 Republican primary. What’s the number-one thing you want people here to know about you? Greene: That I am really just like they are. I struggle with how to pay the bills and our gas prices and our food prices. I am looking to work for them and stand up and fight for them. I am really just the average girl who has a good strong business background and wants to use that, and loves politics and loves this country, and I’m tired just like they are of all the stuff that is going on in Washington. I’m tired of yelling at my television set, and I want to represent the people and restore some integrity and values and good hard-working ideas back into Congress from someone who is from the ranks of ‘We the people.’…I’m not a politician, I’m not an elite person, I’m not wealthy, I’m just like every one of them and understand the issues that we are all facing. What would make you a better Congressperson than Bill Owens? Greene: We’re diametrically opposed on just about every issue you can name. He supported Obamacare and of course recently supported the mandates [on contraception], which I am vehemently opposed to. He really hasn’t done anything in creating jobs and helping our local economy here in our district. He supports raising taxes as opposed to reducing taxes. He wants more spending, not less spending. He voted for debt ceiling increases. And he’s done other things like voting for National Defense Authorization Act, which

despite the fact that it has things...that are important for our district, it also strips us of our rights under the Constitution, and I find that horrible.…What it does is provide funding for the military and for our defense budget. But the language this past December had in it a provision whereby it would give unprecedented power to the executive branch, they say, to prevent terrorism, but they could stop any American and detain us in prison really without cause if they felt we were a threat. …So many people were up in arms about this, including me, because I’m tired of watching our Congress as a whole and our President strip away our rights and freedoms under the Constitution and it’s starting to look like a blank piece of paper and for me, that is the #1 benchmark we should be looking at no matter what the bill is. …So I see big differences between me and Mr. Owens. I’m a fiscal conservative. I would absolutely not vote for the debt ceiling increase. I absolutely believe in the reduction in taxes. I believe we need to stimulate our economy and bring jobs back to this country and back to this district. Frankly, some parts of our district have more than a 12% unemployment rate, and I don’t see Mr. OwPlease turn to next page

ens as being an effective Congressman. He really hasn’t done anything. What issues do you agree with Rep. Owens on? Greene: Well, about the only thing I can think of is, he seems to be a pretty big supporter of gun rights. I’m a Second Amendment girl myself. What do you think of Obamacare? Greene: I think it’s a disaster. First of all, from a constitutional perspective, I do see it as unconst itut iona l, and I’m hopeful the Supreme Court will as well. To force us to purchase anything, especially insurance, I’m especially aggrieved with the mandate on contraception and things that I totally disagree with from a religious standpoint as well. I also see this as a drain on our economy, the cost is insurmountable, and we find out every day that the cost is really underestimated and is really much higher than it is. And one of the other costs that no one seems to talk about is all of those illegals that come to this country, if they pass an amnesty program, which a lot of Democrats seem to be pushing, who is going to pay for them? That has not been factored into the cost, either. You’ve got an estimated 12 or maybe even 20 million illegals, that if you give them amnesty, that’s going to be another burden to the taxpayer. …So I have grave concerns about Obamacare, it’s a disaster and as far as I’m con-

cerned, needs to be repealed. What specifically do you disagree with Matt Doheny on? Greene: Mr. Doheny claims to be conservative, but lately he’s come out in support of the initiative called Bv7 — I’m not sure if people in Glens Falls would be familiar with this, because it does affect people in the different part of the district up here, but it has to do with rising and lowering water levels in the St. Lawrence Seaway. It’s an environmental issue and it actually is one that Mr. Owens supports. While Mr. Doheny considers it good for the river, he’s not considering that it’s actually not that great for Lake Ontario. It’s going to potentially cause a lot of flooding and damage and beach erosion on the lakeshore and the own estimates of the organization pushing this are between $3- and $5-million a year for property owners on the lakeshore every year.... He also has previously stated that he believes No Child Left Behind was a reasonably good program, with maybe a couple of minor changes needed, and I totally disPlease turn to page 47

Kellie Greene says... The Chronicle asked Kellie Greene, who is seeking the Republican nomination for the 21st Congressional District: What do you think of current Congressman Chris Gibson? Greene: I’ve met him once and he seemed like a very nice person. I think we agree on many issues. I don’t think that he’s a little bit more to the left on some issues than I am, but I agree with him on global trade policy…we need to not be allowing China and some of these other countries to walk all over us. Overall, I think Chris Gibson is probably a pretty decent Congressman. How about President Obama? Greene: I think he’s been the worst president in the history of the United States, or certainly right at the top of the list. He has not done what he was supposedly going to do, which was fix our economy. I think if you ask most Americans if they are better off today than they were three or four years ago, I think the answer is no. I know that’s true for me. I think he’s been disastrous. Who is your favorite president in history and why? Greene: Ronald Reagan, at least in my lifetime. Of course I have profound respect for our founding fathers and think they were brilliant in terms of constructing our Constitution, so all of the early people who ran our country deserve our profound respect, but in my lifetime, Ronald Reagan. He did some incredible things, and while he was labeled a protectionist with global trade with the Toyota issue, let’s not forget that was happened from his putting quotas on Toyota is that Toyota packed up and moved here and created jobs.

agree with that assessment. No Child Left Behind is a disaster in my opinion and the Department of Education is a disaster and we need to put more power back into local control and into our parents and in our school districts and get the Department of Education out of the way. I see Mr. Doheny as a Wall Street guy. He comes from a Wall Street background. His financing and support, if you look at his FEC [Federal Election Commission] reports, is largely from Wall Street. He pushes a Wall Street-type agenda. He’s not as interested and doesn’t give any solutions for our districts. • We asked Ms. Greene for more biographical background. Greene: Born and raised in Oswego, N.Y. I am 44, but I don’t look it...I am single, never married, and I don’t have children, but would still love to achieve that at some point. Graduated in 1990 from Bay Path College in Accounting and Business Administration, earned a bachelor’s degree in logistics management from Syracuse University in 1992, and an MBA from Rochester Institute of Technology in International Business in 2002. I’m now taking my last course for my master’s of theology, which I will receive on June 9, just two weeks before the primary. What do you do for a living? Greene: Right now, I’m running for Congress. But what are you doing to pay the bills? Greene: I’m an independent contractor, I’m a consultant in the global trade and shipping and logistics field. That’s partially why I’m so in tune with our infrastructure issues. So right now it’s been very difficult to do work while running for Congress because a lot of my business requires extensive travel across the country. So at this particular juncture I’m doing a lot less work than I’d like to be doing, but that is what I have been doing for the last
eight-plus years, working with a man out of Rochester doing consulting, and I have more than 20 years of experience in this industry.
...and her opinions From page 17
quences worked in our favor and I think there’s a lot of history of what Reagan did that show us how to stimulate our economy and be an effective government. What do you know about Glens Falls and Warren, Washington and northern Saratoga Counties? Greene: I know they are beautiful. Every time I go over there, I think, ‘Gosh, I could take a nice long vacation here. It would be fantastic.’ It’s interesting that your #1 employer in Warren County and Glens Falls is actually your hospital, followed by CR Bard and then Finch Paper, so it is not a heavy manufacturing area compared to other parts of the district. I’m sure that part of that is that jobs have been leaving New York for a long time now. I know CR Bard announced they were laying off about 200 people in February, and that’s not good news for any area.... I spent an entire day in Glens Falls going door-to-door meeting people a few weeks ago. In fact it was on Palm Sunday. Freezing cold rain, I might add, and I went door to door — a lot of people weren’t home because it was Palm Sunday and Easter break and people were gone — but I had great conversations... One of my assignments for my last term of school is I get to go and visit multiple denominations to understand all versions of the Christian faith. My assignment was to attend an orthodox church, so I was able to attend the orthodox church in Glens Falls [St. George’s Antiochian Christian Orthodox Church — it’s actually in Saratoga County, right over the bridge. I attended that on what we would consider Palm Sunday, but of course the Orthodox calendar is a little bit different so it was not their Palm Sunday. It was a fantastic experience and they were extremely wonderful and friendly to me.... It is obviously going to be more of a tour-
ist draw. We need to be bringing tourism back to all areas of our district. That’s a big area for us for growth as a whole in our district. And I’d like to see more rail — I believe that an issue over there is more rail coverage for freight as well as passenger. That drives not only our tourism, but I work in the logistics and shipping industry and I’m very sensitive to needs of responsible freight and more options and that’s one of the big issues that I think will be driving jobs back to our district, is rail and port infrastructure. Has any Republican committee endorsed you? Greene: No, the Republican committees have pretty much ignored me. From the moment I got into this race, back in January when I was launching my campaign, I started making the calls to the then District 23, the 11 county chairs in the 23rd district. Some of them I left messages for, some of them never still to this day have called me back, after two and three messages. Many that I did talk to have now lied to their committeemen and told them that I never called them, but I have cellphone records that indicate otherwise. I find that interesting. Several of them didn’t even invite me to an endorsement meeting. I question whether an endorsement is legitimate if your committeemen are never given the opportunity to listen to both parties. I had only four committees who invited me, and when the district was redrawn, I left messages for the Warren, Washington, Saratoga and Herkimer County chairmen of both the Conservative and Republican parties. I only actually spoke to the Saratoga County Republican chairman. The other three never returned my phone calls. And in the Conservative Party, I spoke with Carol Birkholz in Warren County and I spoke to the Herkimer County chair, both of whom offered me the opportunity to go before their committee, but at that point [the Conservative Party] had come out and endorsed Mr. Doheny and said he was going to be on the ballot. At that point I called them, I didn’t want to waste their time. Do you have a chance? Greene: I believe I do. If I didn’t believe
