EDITOR, Daily News:

I am a strong supporter of Rep. Ortiz. As a former representative myself, I understand what makes someone successful in that role. Dan has shown that he has the qualities needed to do an excellent job for us. He will serve on the Finance Committee when reelected and will be in a strong position to do what our district needs. I have been impressed with his work ethic, his ability to work with others and his compassion. Please join me in voting for Dan Ortiz for State House on Tuesday.
