With 32 different communities from Boston to Westborough, Acton to Allston/Brighton, and virtually everwhere in between, running for Governor's Council can be a daunting task. (Click on the map to see the whole district)
When I decided to enter the Governor's Council race, however, I felt it important to reach out to every community in the district. Not figuratively... literally.
The first way to demonstrate this desire to expand outreach was to gather nomination signatures from each and every one of the 32 cities and towns.
People I meet seem surprised that I'm the only candidate in the race to have made it a priority to make that effort. To me it's basic. If you are planning on representing every community a good place to start is to visit every community.
As I continue to contact local officials, decision makers, thought leaders, and activists in each community, those initial efforts appear to be appreciated. We submitted over 1500 certified signatures from all 32 communities to secure a place on the Sept. 6th ballot. (500 more than required, and significantly more than the other candidates).
As the campaign moves forward, look for info on events and let me know your thoughts or if you are willing to help in any way. I warmly welcome your input.
Together we'll make the change we need on the Governor's Council.
