I am a husband, father, United States Marine Corps veteran and a veterinarian. I am a progressive Democrat running for State Representative in Woburn and Reading, Massachusetts.
I am running for State Representative because we need a new generation of legislative leadership in order to ensure the continued success and prosperity of our communities, and to keep our great commonwealth moving forward. Our grassroots campaign will be promoting a vision for democratic politics and progressive policy that emphasizes the importance of:
1) A Better Democracy through Engaged Citizenship
2) Thriving Communities
3) Healthy Families
Please take a moment to read my own personal story as it highlights the fact that none of us are truly "self-made" and that we all owe our successes in life to our families and communities. Politically-speaking, I believe that those of us who have enjoyed professional success have a duty to ensure that we have a vibrant democracy that serves all of us. Woburn and Reading have a proud history of being places where working families can raise their families and give their children the opportunities to enjoy a good life.
My decision to seek elected office as your state representative has been very deliberate- like my decision to enlist in our United States Marine Corps I don't know where this journey will take me, but the same sense of idealism and call to service compel me to do this. Our campaign- comprised of working people, will be honest and issues-based. We will be heavily focused on reaching as many of you as possible, and having the kind of conversations that our commonwealth and nation need to have about the health of our democracy and what kind of future we want for our communities and our children. I plan on personally devoting hundreds of hours and hundreds of miles of walking to get to know as many of you as I can. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or want to help the campaign.
