ANTHONY PICCIRILLO WINS CONSERVATIVE AND INDEPENDENCE OTB WRITE IN PRIMARIES. Bohemia, New York – On Tuesday June 25th , Anthony Piccirillo the Republican candidate for the 8th Legislative District, shocked the political world in Suffolk County. What many dubbed impossible; he accomplished twice in one night. Anthony, along with the support from rank and file Conservatives and Independents beat an incumbent who was backed by the party bosses. When the night was all said and done, Anthony won two write-in campaigns for the Conservative and Independence Parties; both by margins greater than 60%. “I am truly humbled by both the Conservative and Independence party voters for their belief and trust in me. Together we just proved it’s the voters; not the party bosses who get to decide who runs on their party lines” Piccirillo said. A few months earlier Anthony was informed he would no longer receive the Conservative endorsement, instead they would endorse his opponent who is a liberal Democrat. This caused a group of Conservatives to collect signatures to force a write-in primary. Anthony’s campaign team also collected signatures to force a write-in primary for the Independence party as well. Many insiders believed that he could not win a write-in primary; never mind both. This was due to the fact that his name would not appear on the ballot, voters had to go to the polls and physically write his name in on the ballot. By 10pm, it was clear Anthony won both primaries. “This was a win for the hard-working middle class families in Suffolk County and a loss to the political ruling class” stated Anthony. After the huge primary wins, Anthony immediately shifted his mind to November. “I won’t stop campaigning until I meet every single voter in the 8th Legislative District. I will continue to work hard until Election Day and I promise when I am elected I will work solely for the taxpayers, not the special interest groups or the political party bosses” added Piccirillo. Anthony will now appear on the ballot for the general election on the Republican, Conservative, Independent and Libertarian Lines. Piccirillo a Legislative Aide for Suffolk County Legislator Steve Flotteron, is a lifelong resident of the 8th Legislative district. The 8th Legislative district is comprised of Bohemia, Bay Port, Blue Point, Holbrook, Holtsville, Lake Ronkonkoma, Medford, Oakdale, Sayville and West Sayville. The general election is set for November 5th .
