With the Sept. 4 primary election behind us, I want to extend my deepest gratitude to my supporters - friends, family and the wonderful residents of Lexington and Woburn - for your support throughout the campaign and at the polls.
Can you believe that Election Day is less than one month away? There have been a lot of exciting things happening on the campaign, but I wanted to specifically tell you about one endorsement I'm especially proud of -- the Environmental League of Massachusetts.
The heat and humidity of the summer may be at its peak, but that's only getting our campaign more determined! Next Wednesday, August 1, 2018, we're going to be taking a break from knocking on doors for a few hours for an exciting campaign event in Lexington.
I hope you'll join me for a fun evening with your friends and neighbors.
Here are the details:
I hope you'll have the opportunity to attend, learn more about our campaign, and get involved!
Thank you Massachusetts Women's Political Caucus for endorsing my candidacy for State Representative!
The MWPC has played a critical role in electing qualified women candidates from City Councilors to U.S. Senators. To earn their endorsement in such a crowded field of candidates is truly an honor. It also shows that our message is resonating and our hard work is making a real difference. Moreover, my recognition by this group of very influential, involved citizens adds one more element to my ability to be effective on Beacon Hill from day one.
"We are pleased to endorse a group of terrific women candidates who are highly qualified and committed to making positive changes in districts across Massachusetts," said Laurie Martinelli, Executive Director. "This is a watershed year for the Caucus in many respects, and through these endorsements for offices statewide we are seeing this women’s movement unfolding right in front of our eyes.”
Please see the attached press release for more information on Michelle's endorsement and the mission of MWPC.
I can't believe summer is actually here! When we launched our campaign earlier this year, there was a foot of snow on the ground. Since then, we've been out working hard and connecting with voters in Lexington and Woburn -- knocking on over 2,500 doors, hosting more than 40 meet & greets, and putting up more than 250 lawn signs.
The response has been incredible and the excitement surrounding our grassroots campaign is palpable.
With all this excitement, we're also approaching an important fundraising deadline. The second fundraising quarter ends on June 30th, and we want to end this quarter strong.
Will you consider making a donation in any amount between now and Saturday night at midnight?

The crowd at last week's Campaign Kickoff was incredible! With over 150 people packing the Lexington Depot, we came together to talk about our shared vision for Lexington, Woburn, and the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I was proud to have Hank Manz and Vineeta Kumar introduce me and talk about the future of our communities. Click here to see photos from our kickoff!
This campaign is all about building a grassroots organization across Lexington and Woburn so every resident has a voice in government. Today, I'm excited to release a list of over 300 neighbors who are publicly supporting our campaign.
It means a lot to put your name behind a candidate, and I am so grateful that so many local elected officials, community leaders, civic activists, and neighbors are willing to be listed as endorsers.
Is your name missing from the list and you want to join our growing team? Please click here to sign on as an endorser!
With your support, we will be successful in September and take our message to Beacon Hill!
Spring has officially sprung and our campaign for State Representative is in full swing! As we continue our grassroots organizing, hosting meet & greets, and door knocking, I wanted to invite you to my official Campaign Kickoff Event. I hope you'll join us for a fun night with your friends and neighbors.
Here are the details:
The event is free, open to the public, and all are welcome! Light refreshments will be served. For more event information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for your continued support, and see you on the 8th!
I want to thank everyone who turned out to help us with canvassing in Woburn last week. It was a lovely day & we met a lot of great folks.
