Letter in Support of John Flores for State Senator

from Joe DellaMorte of West Barnstable

Letter to the Editor:

How refreshing to have a candidate who understands we live on a peninsula and two islands made up of small businesses, their owners and employees!   John Flores, a fourth-generation Cape Codder, knows the practical aspects of being a business owner. He has real life experience to offer as our legislator in the State Senate.

Julian Cyr ran on a platform of being from the Cape and part of family businesses, but he voted against lowering the sales tax, hurting all of our pocketbooks.

Cyr supports single payer health care, which would bring harm to the Cape’s small businesses.  Single-payer ensures the government takes full control of our health care. If the government ‘manages’ hundreds of millions of dollars in health care spending to fund Cyr’s irresponsible ideas, how long before Cyr votes to pass funding onto employers?  Such spending would likely exceed a small business’ budget resulting in fewer employees at lower wages.

While Julian Cyr thinks he is a healthcare expert, he knows little about the businesses responsible for funding it in the first place.

As State Senator, John Flores will bring real-world business experience and common-sense solutions to the Cape and Islands. Solutions we can all live with.
