To the Editor:
As the former county Democratic chairman for many years, I always felt and made sure that the Democrats made an endorsement early. I felt as the party leader we needed to fight hard to get our voices heard in elections. It’s always a tough call with so many talented people who have entered the race, but there is always one who stands out the most, and at this point we need to make that decision.
In this case Antonio Delgado is that person, for many reasons. He knows the meaning of hard work. He comes from working-class roots and understands the needs of families in Otsego County and across New York’s 19th District. He has brought his work ethic and the values of integrity, honesty and service that he was raised on to this campaign, building an outstanding organization that reaches every part of this region. He is committed to restoring dignity to our politics and will be a credit to us in Congress.
I am proud to endorse Antonio and I hope you will join him on this journey in winning back Congress.
Please join me in supporting and voting for Antonio Delgado on June 26.
