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?

With your continued support, we will have the resources we need to continue our momentum and grow our organization. I can't thank you enough for your generous support, and I look forward to updating you with more exciting news coming next week!
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!
I wanted to check in to give everyone some exciting updates on our campaign!

These past few weeks have been both busy and exhilarating out on the campaign trail!
On January 30th, we held an organizational meeting attended by over 50 volunteers and supporters. It was great seeing so many old friends, but I was also excited to see so many new faces in the room.
At this meeting, we began our nomination paper drive to collect the signatures required to qualify for the ballot. Last week, we officially submitted our first batch of signatures! Thanks to the help of dozens of volunteers in Lexington and Woburn, we were able to exceed our signature collection goal.
We've also been very busy hosting coffees, meet & greets, and house parties across the district. We have multiple public events scheduled every week and more are being added daily. If you're interested in attending an event, please click here. I would also be honored if you would consider hosting a coffee of your own!
There are plenty of exciting ways to get involved in our grassroots organization, and I would love to have your help. Please email me, contact a committee member, or sign up online here!
There's so much at stake in this election, so I hope you will join me to ensure Lexington and Woburn continue to have strong, progressive leadership on Beacon Hill..
Thank you, friends! Last month, I told you about an aggressive goal we set for our campaign -- 100 contributions before the December 31st fundraising deadline. Thanks to your incredible generosity, we surpassed our goal with over 214 donations! I am so grateful and humbled by your support and belief in me.
Now, it's critical that we continue to build our grassroots organization. I hope you'll join our team for our first organizational meeting. Here are the details:
We'd love for you to come by to learn more about our campaign, talk about our shared vision for Lexington and Woburn, and get involved!
