STATE REP RACE: Candidate Pina Prinzivalli Resumes Campaigning After Miceli’s Passing

TEWKSBURY, MA — After suspending her campaign for 10 days following the passing of Representative James Miceli (D-Wilmington) on April 21, Tewksbury resident Pina Prinzivalli announced on Tuesday that she has resumed her campaign for the 19th Middlesex State Rep seat.

“Suspending the campaign was the right thing to do,” said Prinzivalli. “I received a lot of messages and positive feedback and thank you’s for being respectful during a difficult time for the community. Even more so when new candidates started pulling papers and collecting signatures within 48 hours of Mr. Miceli’s death. I’m looking forward to getting back out there to continue talking to voters and putting the taxpayers first.”

Prinzivalli announced her candidacy in October of 2017 and has been officially on the ballot since April 12, 2018.

“It’s clear that I’m the only candidate who is running to put the taxpayers first,” said Prinzivalli who has already worked to lower the tax burden by collecting signatures for a balllot question to reduce the sales tax and create an annual tax free weekend.

“The taxpayers deserve to keep more of their hard earned money,” said Prinzivalli. “Since October, I’ve been outspoken about the State House pay raises. I’ve pledged to oppose all tax increases and I’m against sanctuary cities. I want to prioritize local aid, and not the special interests, so the taxpayers of Tewksbury and Wilmington get a better return for their tax dollars. Anyone who is deciding to run all of a sudden, is sending a clear message that they’re running to defeat the taxpayers.”

  1. Three things:
    1) “Thank you’s” should not have an apostrophe. Apostrophe catastrophe!
    2) What previous town or state boards, groups, etc., have you served on? You do not note any previous roots you have laid down other than being a 2-year homeowner in Tewksbury. I’m concerned about this as it relates to the continuity of your dedication to the towns you want to serve.
    3) “Anyone who is deciding to run all of a sudden, is sending a clear message that they’re running to defeat the taxpayers.” I don’t agree with you that people who decide to run are defeating me.
