Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone on Monday released a fundraising email to supporters, pointing to his accomplishments as he seeks re-election to what has been a swing county for both parties in recent election cycles.

Bellone pointed to efforts geared toward containing costs, cutting his own pay, support for the state’s tax cap and firing of former Suffolk County Police Chief James Burke.

“I’ve run marathons, but next fall I’m running the most important race of my life, one that affects the future of our County,” Bellone said. “I’m running for re-election. I’m running to make sure that our County is a place where all of our kids – mine and yours – can grow up and raise their own families here enjoying all the things we love about Long Island. This is why I need your help.”

Suffolk is something of a purple county, with President Donald Trump having won it in 2016, but Democrats making gains in key state Senate races there last year.

Bellone is seeking a third term.
