In the wake of Bob DeLeo choosing to step down from his position, a new crop of candidates have thrown their hat into the ring in pursuit of becoming the next State Representative of the 19th Suffolk District. For those living within the district, if your mailbox looks like mine, it has been filled with a bevy of political advertisements highlighting the many accomplishments and political plans of these candidates. One candidate however, stands out to me as the clear choice above the others not by his political aspirations and what he says he will do, but rather on his many accomplishments and contributions that he has already made to the cities of Revere and Winthrop.
The candidate I am supporting lives in Winthrop and grew up in Revere. I view this as a tremendous advantage for both communities as we have the ability to support a new state representative that has actually experienced what residents in both communities’ experience. This candidate comes from humble beginnings and Revere roots, and has harnessed the power of education to establish a successful career and support a lovely family. This shows me that he understands the value and importance of access to high quality education for our future generations as they too can leverage strong education and follow this path.
