LETTER: Finegold Has This Resident's Support For State Senate

To The Editor:

Like many people, I don’t choose the candidates I vote for based on party affiliation. Instead, I vote for the candidates I like, whose messages I believe in and policy priorities I share. That is why I am supporting Barry Finegold for State Senate. I’ve known Barry for almost a decade now, starting when we worked on the new Dracut High School project together.

From the start, I saw that Barry was someone who is genuine, keeps his word and gets thing done. He knew how important the new high school project was to our town, and he was crucial to securing the $36 million in funding it took to make the project a reality.

As Dracut’s State Senator from 2011-2015, he worked tirelessly for our community, bringing home education and public safety dollars to the district. No one works harder than Barry, and we need his leadership and experience in the State House now more than ever. This election isn’t about towing the party line; it’s about getting things done.

I encourage my neighbors in Dracut, as well as voters in Andover, Lawrence and Tewksbury, to cast their votes for Barry Finegold on November 6th.
