Broome County Democrats Speak Out Against Republican Mail Campaign

By Alex Howard (twitter:@alexhoward99).
County Democrats assemble to speak out against a recent Republican mailing campaign that targets democratic city council candidates.

Party leaders pointed out that the mail specifically targets Democratic city council candidates, attempting to link them to specific policies of former Binghamton Mayor Matt Ryan as well as the Occupy Binghamton Movement.

They say that these mailers are false and inflammatory. Democratic Party Chair Jim Testani said that, “this kind of mailing campaign directly compromises the democratic system of Broome County Government, by attempting to suppress women and Democratic voter's willingness to vote for Democrats in the upcoming election.”

Fox 40 also reached out to Republican Chairman for Broome County Bijoy Datta who told us that, because former Mayor Matt Ryan has endorsed the Democrat Candidates for City Council, that they are running on his record.
