I ran for town council as an outsider, a fresh voice. I was elected in 2018 with the second-highest vote count and had the highest vote count in my 2020 re-election. During my 4 years, I served on 9 different committees. Just prior to being elected, I served on the Middletown Planning Board (2017-2018). I have already shown that I do not just sit in the seat with the title, but I participate in the conversation.
Ask anyone who was paying attention to Middletown Town Council. I didn’t just review the issues, I researched them. I asked questions to make sure I understood the issues and spoke up to make sure the dots connected. I work hard to make clear to the public, all elements of the issues for transparent, data-driven decisions with a win-win perspective. I look at what every decision option will look like in 5 years, 10 years, 25 years, 50 years, and on for long-term solution-oriented thinking because if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail. I want to bring that same passion to the federal level.
The power for change is in the hands of the voters. Voters realize that they are bombarded with messaging from many sources: ground mail, email, texts, TV, radio, social media, yard signs, doorhangers, palm cards. That’s what the big money war chests buy - lots of media to create name recognition. Voters know this and they have the power to vote differently and deliberately. My message: please vote for me in the primary election on Sept 5th and vote for change in the November 7th Special Election. That’s what voting for Terri Flynn will do.
This is an off-year special election. Many people will think they do not need to vote and I am asking them to PLEASE: At Least Vote. If you are not registered to vote yet, you can easily register online, or with a paper form, until August 6 Apply for a mail or braille ballot by Aug 15 Early voting for the primary starts Aug 16 Sept 5th is the Primary. Please: VOTE / remind your friends!
