I’m writing to thank the voters of Malden, Melrose, Reading, Stoneham, Wakefield, and Winchester for participating in the March 4th Democratic primary to replace now-Congresswoman Katherine Clark. This was an unusual election, in the cold, and the latest in a series of special elections. I’m grateful that so many of you made a special effort to vote and made sure your family and friends participated.
I’m proud to have earned the support of so many members of our communities and to be chosen as the Democratic nominee for the April 1st general election.
I congratulate Rep. Chris Fallon and Anthony Guardia, and their supporters, on a hard fought campaign. I know that they are both deeply committed to public service and will continue to contribute to the well being of the communities of the 5th Middlesex district in many different ways.
I also want to thank the many dedicated volunteers who knocked on doors, made countless phone calls, stuffed envelopes, and held signs over the past few months. There is no doubt that our success during the primary was the result of an incredible team effort.
If I have the privilege of being elected to the State Senate on April 1, I will continue to focus on bringing effective leadership to the district on key issues: local economic development projects that enhance the quality of life in our communities; education funding reform to ensure adequate and equitable funding for all of our schools; containing healthcare costs to make quality care more affordable for our families, seniors and small businesses; and government reforms that continue to make our state government more efficient, accountable, and responsive to our needs and concerns.
We will continue to run a strong, grassroots campaign. I invite you to learn more at www.ElectJasonLewis.com and welcome your participation.
We have a great opportunity to strengthen our communities and move Massachusetts forward. I ask for your support and your vote on April 1 to continue the important work we have underway.
Democratic Nominee and State Rep. Jason Lewis
