“If you want a citizen in politics who has principles, who is pro youth, pro education – someone with immense respect, care and concern for for the rights and earned benefits of elders… if you want someone seriously concerned about public right to protection of personal safety, strong community values and identities, our city’s infrastructure right here in district 19, and protecting the constitutionally guaranteed individual minority free rights of each community’s distinct voice and inborn cultural expression, heritage and dignity free from harassment or coercion, then you are going to want to vote for Daniel J. Halloran III no matter what party or what politics or cultural or religious background you belong to… as long as you’re fair, Dan is about what’s right, and he’s the right choice.” ~Friends of Dan Halloran
