He’s Got My Vote

I’m voting for Tommy John Schiavoni for state senator in the Democratic Primary on June 23. There is also absentee ballot voting and early voting. Please go to www.tommyjohnfornewyork.com for details.

There are several Democratic candidates vying for the position of state senator for District 1 (eastern Long Island). The longtime Republican state senator for District 1, Ken LaValle, is retiring, thereby creating a wide-open race for his seat.

As a member of the Southampton Town Democratic Committee, I know Tommy John well. He is a terrific guy, a very hard worker, and he has a strong set of qualifications. Currently, he is a councilman for the Town of Southampton. I urge you to go to his website (cited above) and/or Facebook to learn more about Tommy John’s background and his plans to improve things here on eastern Long Island.

To be honest, I don’t know the other Democratic candidates for this state senator position. I did watch the recent debate, which was sponsored by the League of Women Voters. As you might imagine, I thought Tommy John won.

However, I must say that I was very impressed with Skyler Johnson. He is 19 years old, and he is very smart and very articulate. I don’t think he is ready to serve as our state senator at this point in time … but, I believe that he has a very bright future.

I know Tommy John. I like Tommy John. I trust Tommy John. I’m voting for Tommy John.

Please take the time to learn about the Democratic candidates for state senator and vote for the candidate that you like and trust.
