Cyr understands needs of small businesses

We are so excited to support our friend Julian Cyr for state Senate.

Julian grew up working in his family’s restaurant, and he knows that a thriving Cape depends on a prosperous local economy. In the summer of 2013, an outbreak of vibrio bacteria threatened to shut down the oyster harvest in Cape and Vineyard waters. Julian pushed back against the federal government and worked with members of local industries, collaborating on an approach that maintained public safety while minimizing the economic burden of the outbreak on small businesses. He found common ground and brought all the parties together to solve the problem.

As small business owners, we want a state Senator who knows how to regulate to keep our families safe and healthy, but also understands the struggles that a business owner faces.

Julian is our best choice for state Senator. We ask you to vote for Julian Cyr for state Senate in the Democratic primary on Thursday, Sept. 8. Go to to learn more about Julian.
