Over the last many weeks, I have enjoyed meeting and talking to many people on the campaign trail. One of the most-asked questions that I'm faced with is "What party are you with?" My answer is always the same, "Does it really matter?"
It shouldn't. I am not running for the party, I am running to represent the people in the district regardless of party. You will not find my party affiliation on any of my handout material or on my website. It does not matter to me. I want to be elected not based on what party I am registered with, but what I stand for: my principles, ideas, plans and commitment to represent the people in my district.
It is my intent to work with everyone regardless of party affiliation in order to get the people's business done. As an example, my campaign team is made up of mostly Republican members, even though I am running on the Democratic line. I am not a seasoned politician like my opponent, but a hard-working business owner/family man who will give you better representation and a louder voice in Albany. Vote for the person, not the party.
Please feel free to call me at (315) 866-3474 or visit my website at www.ChilelliForAssembly.com to see my platform for change.
Candidate for 118th Assembly District
