LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Finance Committee Member Marianne Gallezzo Endorses Judy O’Connell For State Rep

Dear Editor,

As a voter I believe it is vital that we vote for someone who reflects our values as a community, so I’ll be voting for Judy O’Connell for State Representative of the 19th Middlesex District. Judy is an effective advocate for high quality education, smart economic development, top notch public safety services, maintaining a vibrant senior citizen population and supporting Veterans services, to mention a few.

As a resident, and in my role as a Finance Committee member, I have always appreciated her enthusiastic support for these kinds of services while maintaining fiscal discipline in her position as a Selectman, School Committee member and active member of several town committees and community organizations, including the Yentile Farm Development Committee. I watched first hand as Judy developed a vision from start to finish for the Yentile Farm Recreation Facility. I watched her passion in meetings for Yentile as she engaged the public and truly listened to what residents wanted to see in this facility. To bring a $4.8 Million project to fruition under budget and on time is truly a great example of Judy’s dedication, commitment to her community, and outstanding leadership skills.

I especially appreciate Judy’s thoughtful approach to problem solving. She seeks out new ideas and different perspectives, weighs the alternatives, considers possible outcomes and develops reasonable positions. She is an approachable, thoughtful and compassionate person who listens to, engages with and advocates for residents of all ages, backgrounds and interests. She is genuinely committed to governing well for everybody.

Judy understands how government works–and how it doesn’t work. As a State Representative, she can hit the ground running on day one of her term and she is the best candidate to represent the towns of Tewksbury and Wilmington at the State House. Please join me in voting for Judy O’Connell for State Representative on September 4th.
