TEWKSBURY, MA — The campaign for State Rep. Candidate Mark Kratman (D-Tewksbury) today issued the following statement in response to a recent statement from the Dave Robertson campaign:
The Committee to Elect Mark Kratman is deeply disappointed in the negative campaigning and specious arguments of David Robertson and his campaign surrogates. This is the type of campaigning from a candidate without a record to run on and thus seeks to smear another candidate with half-truths.
“Attacking a candidate for caring for an elderly family member while working two full time jobs shows Robertson’s immaturity and desire to deliberately mislead voters. You take care of family first, everything else is secondary,” said Campaign Chairman Vincent Fratalia. “Mark has not only consistently and proudly voted in Tewksbury since 2013 – he has also been elected twice to the Board of Selectmen, served as chair of the Economic Development Committee, and served on the boards of the Lowell Regional Transit Authority, the Wilmington-Tewksbury Chamber of Commerce, the Beautification Committee, the Wilmington-Tewksbury Elks, the Tewksbury Lions, the Knights of Columbus and organized the Memorial Day Parade, the 4th of July, and other Veteran activities as Vice Chair of the Patriotic Committee. His strong service to our fine communities over many years comprises both public and private entities and is widely recognized by residents and business owners in both towns.”
“Voters care about the issues that affect them every day – paying their mortgages, their property taxes, water and sewer bills, raising their children (and writing those checks for sports, activities, and tuition), caring for their elderly parents, managing health care (and the co-pays from devastating illness), and growing their careers and families,” added Fratalia. “What we know best about Mark is that he is the hardest working candidate, that he is dedicated to his family and his community, and is driven to serve the people of our communities with facts, energy, and compassion.”
