To the editor:
The congressional primary on Tuesday, June 28, 2016, is where all NY-19 Democrats will make the critical decision as to the candidate they want to see on the ballot in the General Election in November, 2016, and from there elected to work for us in the U.S. House of Representatives. I have spent significant time listening to both candidates, and to me, Will Yandik is clearly the best choice.
Will is the Democratic candidate that was born and raised in this district. He understands us and our needs. He talks in detail about the demographics of our district and has well thought out ideas for ways to not only work national issues, but also to help us. He is the Democratic candidate with experience governing, having won election and re-election to the town board in his heavily Republican town. He has proven he can work together with his colleagues, regardless of party, and get progressive goals accomplished. He is the candidate that talks not only about what he is for and what he opposes, but can also articulate the key steps in making progress and how he would proceed. Plus he is well rounded as a successful farmer, teacher, and journalist.
We need a candidate that is one of us, knows us, cares, and knows how to make the right things happen. This is why we need Will Yandik!
Please join me in voting for Will Yandik in the Federal Primary on Tuesday, June 28, 2016, with the polls open from noon to 9:00 pm. And please encourage others to do so as well.
