Cicero Democrats Supporting Other Democrats!

On Sunday, May 19, 2019, our candidates for Cicero Town Board attended a fundraiser at the North Syracuse Community Center. The dessert fundraiser brought together Democrats from all over Onondaga County to share sweets and discuss local issues. The fundraiser focused on benefitting candidates in three northern towns of Cicero, Salina, and Clay. The event was a tremendous success in raising money for local candidates!

Judy, Nate, and Joyce all gave brief speeches about their plans for a more transparent, fair, and fiscally responsible Town of Cicero.

The slate of candidates for all local offices in Salina and Clay also showed up to tell everyone how they would improve quality of life for citizens in their towns. We also heard from many county-wide candidates, including the nominees for County Legislature Jessica Bumpus, Nodesia Hernandez, and Tony Malavenda . Other county-wide Democratic nominees appeared, including those running for District Attorney, Chuck Keller, and Comptroller, Marty Masterpole. Each shared their unique vision for equality, fairness, and responsibility in County government.

The congressional candidates for 2020 appeared as well. Cicero candidates were humbled by Dana Balter offering to help candidates up and down the 2019 ballot. Balter shared with us her gameplan for 2019 and offered her campaign experience and infrastructure to help Democrats in all three towns. Roger Misso and Francis Conole shared their respective visions for the 24th congressional district.

There was great energy in the room and, despite the scary tornado warning toward the end, everyone left feeling #FiredUpAndReadyToGo
