With the Sept. 4 primary election behind us, I want to extend my deepest gratitude to you for your support throughout the campaign and at the polls.
We had the most incredible team, with hundreds of people stepping up to spread the word over the past 10 months. Volunteers were knocking on doors with me every day of the week--rain or shine--even visiting some neighborhoods three times. We made phone calls until 7:40 PM on Tuesday night to remind voters to get to the polls before they closed. Some of you crafted makeshift lawn signs after yours had gone missing! And 86 volunteers braved the heat on election day to hold signs outside the polling places. Your unceasing engagement kept me going and made the campaign strong. In this five-way race we couldn’t take anything for granted, and your steadfast support made Tuesday’s resounding results possible.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I am also grateful to the other candidates: Matthew Cohen, Joe Lahiff, Mary Ann Stewart and Bill Sweeney. Each ran their campaign with integrity and put their heart and soul into the process. We focused on issues and people because in the end we all share a common goal: to make the district and our Commonwealth a better place to live, work, raise a family, and retire. To my fellow candidates, I listened carefully to your messages and look forward to incorporating your ideas into policy work in the future.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention Jay Kaufman, our long time Representative who is retiring after 24 years of exemplary service. In the months ahead, please join me taking time to express how grateful and lucky we are to have had his commitment to our district.
Again, I am so grateful for the role you played in the campaign. It has been my honor to earn your support during this primary. Following the November election, I promise to serve this great district with tremendous dedication!
