TEWKSBURY, MA — With a parking lot literally filled to the brim, David Robertson and his campaign committee were proud to have hosted a campaign rally at Wamesit Lanes in Tewksbury on Thursday, July 12. With over 125 in attendance at the peak of the event, many gathered to hear and listen to local leader support of the candidate, as well as his vision for the future of the 19th Middlesex District.
“I think having such an event at Wamesit Lanes was fitting,” said candidate David Robertson. “It’s an embodiment of what’s to come. Smart, high quality development is on its way to both Tewksbury and Wilmington, and the next decade is of critical importance to both towns, as we move forward. We have to tackle Route 38’s ever-increasing grid-lock, fill our vacant store fronts, and make sure we aren’t pricing our elderly and young folk out of town with our housing costs. I look forward to continue working on such issues as State Representative, and continuing to serve my friends and neighbors.”
The night included a number of remarks from supporters, including Jomarie O’Mahony of Wilmington and long-time Tewksbury teacher Mrs. Eldringhoff, better known to 20 years of students as “Mrs. E.” Both praised David’s dedication to the district as legislative aide to Representative Miceli as well as being widely accessible to constituents facing any sort of issue. Other delegates included long-serving Tewksbury Selectman David Gay, Tewksbury School Board members Krissy Polimeno and Arthy Bennet, former Planning Board member Nancy Reed, Wilmington School Board member MJ Byrnes, and Wilmington Housing Authority member Stacie Murphy.
“I was very happy and enthused to see so many of our supporters show, and this is only a fraction of our volunteers, supporters, and friends of the campaign” said campaign manager Gary DePalma. “Over the next weeks, you’ll see all of these folks out here tonight, spreading our message that Dave is already experienced, ready, and dedicated. He won’t have a lag curve like the other candidates would, and he already knows the importance of constituent services. He has the ideas, and he has the knowledge. Nobody else can claim that.”
