TEWKSBURY — On Monday, Tewksbury’s state Sen. Barbara L’Italien announced her endorsement of Selectman Mark Kratman in the 19th Middlesex state representative race to succeed the late Rep. Jim Miceli.
“I’ve known Mark for years and we have fought side by side to deliver on Tewksbury’s priorities. There is nobody better when it comes to advocating for his community," said L'Italien. "Mark’s heart is this district - you never see him miss an event or an opportunity to bring people together for the betterment of the area. He will be an outstanding representative for Tewksbury and Wilmington and is the best candidate in this race.”
“I am honored to receive this support from our state senator," said Kratman. "Barbara has done a great job bringing taxpayer dollars to this district, for road repairs, to protect beds and jobs at Tewksbury State Hospital, for the Fire Department, and more. I look forward to following in Senator L’Italien and Rep Miceli’s footsteps in the legislature being this district’s voice in the state legislature. Miceli served with distinction for a long time and while he will be missed, I am ready to hit the ground running on day one.”
