Editor, Times-Union:

Sometimes you vote for a candidate because you just don’t want the other candidate to win. Excited to see Tony Cirello on the ballot for District 5. Tony has dedicated his life in service to our community. He has shown compassion, leadership and fortitude in the many positions he has held and succeeded in.  

The numerous awards given from local and state dignitaries are special no doubt. Why so many of us will vote for him is because of the lives he has impacted personally. People he has been there for, during the worst moments of their lives as county coroner and Syracuse police chief, and have comforted. President of the Beaman Home, and having the opportunity to better the lives there. Nurturing and educating the youth as a D.A.R.E officer to escorting our kids to the circus as a Shriner. His list of service is continuous and so much longer.

Vote Tony Cirello so our county can continue to benefit from his experience and dedication to service.
