Republican State Senate candidate Elaine Phillips has released the fourth ad of her campaign in the 7th District — a 30-second spot featuring testimonials from the candidate’s three daughters: Kate, 23, Hannah, 21, and Sarah, 19.

Phillips, the mayor of the Village of Flower Hill, is taking on Democratic businessman Adam Haber at the polls on Nov. 8.

The ad features photos of the Phillips family, and of the candidate talking with constituents and teaching karate — she’s a fourth-degree black belt in martial arts.

“She’s the most hardworking person we know and has truly instilled those values in us,” Sarah Phillips says in the ad. “She creates results. She doesn’t just talk. She makes it happen.”

Earlier this week, Phillips was endorsed by the Business Council of New York State, which represents major employers and small businesses.

Phillips “recognizes the challenges facing our state and is prepared to face those challenges with legislative solutions that will improve the lives of all New Yorkers,” Business Council president Heather Briccetti said.

Haber this week received the endorsement of state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, citing Haber’s record as a Roslyn school board member and as a member of Nassau Interim Finance Authority, a state monitoring board in control of the county’s finances.

“Adam Haber has been an honest advocate for Long Island taxpayers since he started his career in public service, tackling fiscal issues facing the Roslyn school district after millions were stolen by the former superintendent,” DiNapoli said. “He served with integrity on the Nassau Interim Finance Authority putting the issues of transparency and tax savings as his top priorities.”

Haber, an East Hills resident, said his “professional experiences and public service will allow me to be a true fiscal watchdog and a creative leader to ease the unbearable tax burden Long Islanders.”

State Sen. Jack Martins (R-Old Westbury) has vacated the 7th Senate District seat to run for Congress.
