TEWKSBURY, MA — Below is a press statement from the campaign of Dave Robertson (D-Tewksbury), running for the 19th Middlesex State Rep seat.
Recently, Erika Johnson, Chair of the Wilmington Democratic Town Committee, posted on the her personal Facebook page encouraging people to boycott Dandi-Lyons, an ice cream and flower shop in Tewksbury owned by State Representative Jim Lyons of Andover.
“Erika Johnson is not associated with, and does not speak for, this campaign or this candidate. She has never supported this campaign outside of a blanket committee endorsement,” said Gary DePalma, Campaign Manager for Dave Robertson. “Furthermore, we do not support boycotts for political gain. Dave supports local business owners and firmly believes that politics should be kept out of business.”

This statement comes a day after one of his competitors, Pina Prinzivalli (R-Tewksbury), criticized Robertson for not condemning the boycott.
