NY-23 Democratic Congressional Candidate Tracy Mitrano released a community
statement update on the status of her campaign activities around the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
“Our campaign has been closely monitoring the situation around the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
and I wanted to personally let you know my thoughts are with all those impacted and feeling
vulnerable at this time,” she said. “Our team has taken every measure possible to ensure that we
keep our neighbors and ourselves healthy and safe. We have replaced our town halls and house
parties with virtual gatherings and our staff is all working remotely.”

Mitrano announced that her campaign will be moving forward with online options in which her
supporters and those following the campaign can connect with her and receive updates. To adapt
to the changing landscape of political campaigns she announced that they will be forming a
Volunteer Tech Support team to help supporters and others access upcoming virtual events and
Mitrano also stated that in the coming weeks she will restart discussions on the many layers of
politics that she sees surrounding this crisis, from the funding and staffing of federal agencies to
food insecurity of children and the disparity of access to high speed internet. But, she added,
“For the moment, let’s count our blessings, hold our loved ones close, support our friends and
neighbors and settle into our temporarily isolated lives.”

She concluded by letting community members know that her campaign is willing to serve as a
resource if needed. “If you, or someone you know, is in need of resources to get by during this
difficult time – there are organizations and government agencies out there to help. While our
campaign resources are limited, we would like to do anything we can to help our friends and
neighbors during this time: feel free to reach out to us at help@mitrano2020.com and we’ll do
our best to help or put you in contact with someone who can.”
