"With Dan Wolf choosing not to seek reelection, a new face will represent the Cape & Islands in the state senate following Tuesday'selection regardless of who voters choose. Our choice is Democrat Julian Cyr, who grew up in Truro, working in his family's restaurant when not in school. He understands the issues facing working families on the Cape & Islands, and the unique challenges of making a living in a seasonal resort community with one of the highest costs of living in the country. After NYU and a stint as an Obama administration intern, he's also spent six years in state government developing policy for the Department of Public Health and working directly with legislators and community leaders on issues as diverse as water quality, healthcare, and environmental protection.
He has both the government experience and the lifelong knowledge of the district to earn our endorsement for State Senate."
