In the final days of the 2014 campaign, Doug Sears has picked up a major endorsement in his bid to unseat 19-term incumbent state Rep. Jim Miceli, D-Wilmington.
Former Gov. Bill Weld has publicly endorsed Sears, calling the Tewksbury Republican, "a man of high principles with a strong work ethic."
Weld and Sears have known each other for several decades and it was under Weld's tenure as governor that Sears was hired by the state to work as an attorney for state's Department of Industrial Accidents.
Here is the complete text of Weld's endorsement announcement:

"I have known Doug Sears since our high school days to be a man of high principles with a strong work ethic. For these qualities, as Governor, I selected Doug to work with me to turn the Dept. of Industrial Accidents into a national model of success. Doug served 20 years there helping injured workers return to productive work. Doug also knows well the workings of local elective government through his 15 years on the Board of Selectmen and School Committee. Doug is a career public servant who will put together his experience at the state and local levels to benefit the communities he serves as Representative. The residents of Wilmington and Tewksbury will be well served by electing Doug Sears as their new Representative on November 4th."

William F. Weld
