We need Brian Flynn now more so than ever

Apr 26, 2018

To the editor:
My name is Tony Cellini. I was honored to have served the Town of Thompson as an elected official for 38 years, and then as the Town Supervisor for 20 years until my retirement in 2013.
During those years, I had the opportunity to work with volunteer boards, as well as with elected officials from all levels of goverment. I have worked with conservatives and liberals, Democrats and Republicans, and people of nearly every race, religion and ethnicity. These were hard-working Americans, from laborers to professors, homemakers to homebuilders, rich and poor - with most somewhere in between. They all served with dignity and respect. They all were honorable.
We now have the opportunity to elect a Democrat to Congress in New York's 19th Congressional District that will represent ALL this and more. We have the opportunity to elect Brian Flynn.
Not once has Brian ever personally degraded an opponent. Never has he fostered fear or anger. Never has he acted as a demagogue or condoned violence. Never has he demeaned women. And never has he tolerated the impugning of a religious or ethnic group, nor the ridiculing of the handicapped.
I appeal to Democratic friends, voters and leaders: Do not let the disgraceful behavior of Republican President Donald Trump further damage the party of Lincoln and the character of America.
Elect Brian Flynn, who will finally bring dignity and respect back to Congress, something that ALL Americans want and need now!
Please join me in voting for Brian Flynn in the Democratic Primary on June 26th, and he will lead us to victory in November.
