TEWKSBURY, MA — With the signature deadline fast approaching (November 22), Pina Prinzivalli, Republican candidate for State Representative in the 19th Middlesex District, has collected 650 raw signatures for a ballot question to lower the sales tax and set in place a permanent yearly tax free weekend.
“Collecting signatures has been a great chance to meet and talk with voters and show them that I’m dedicated to putting the taxpayers first,” said Prinzivalli, who submitted 506 raw signatures from Tewksbury and Wilmington, the two towns she’s running to represent.
“The hardworking taxpayers are overburdened by the increased spending on Beacon Hill,” said Prinzivalli, referencing that the budget has gone from $26 Billion in 2007 to over $40 Billion in 2017. “Our elected officials voted themselves $18 million dollars worth of pay raises earlier this year. And they’re forcing us to fund sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants. Now they’re talking about adding tolls to all of the major roadways. We have to send a message that enough is enough. It’s time to put the taxpayers first.”
Prinzivalli, a branch manager at a local bank, says she can relate to blue collar workers and ‘9 to 5’ers’ because she’s one of them.
“I had someone approach me who said she’s supporting me because ‘I’m a real person,'” said Prinzivalli, who spent time after work collecting signatures. “It was exciting to have people see me out there and recognize me and say to me ‘you’re the girl that’s running.’ People are realizing that it’s time for the district to plan for the future, to make sure the taxpayers are being protected. And that’s what my campaign is all about; our values, our future.”
Prinzivalli announced her candidacy on October 18, 2017 and will be hosting a campaign kickoff in early 2018. For more information about her campaign, please visit http://www.PinaForYou.com and follow her on Facebook (@PinaForYou) and on Twitter (@PinaForYou.)
