TEWKSBURY, MA — Below is a press release from the campaign of Pina Prinzivalli (R-Tewksbury), running for the 19th Middlesex State Rep seat:
On Thursday night at Wilmington High School, Pina Prinzivalli, the Republican nominee for State Representative in the 19th Middlesex District, delivered a victory for the working class, separating herself from her opponent Dave Roberston (D- Tewksbury), a member of the political class.
“I got into this race over a year ago to put the taxpayers first,” said Prinzivalli, who has been running since October 18, 2017. “This district needs a career professional, a hardworking taxpayer, just like them. I’ve been working in the private sector since I was 19, climbing the ladder to management in local banking. I bought my first home when I was 24. I know what it’s like to have to earn a living to pay a mortgage and property taxes. My opponent doesn’t. As someone who is getting married and dreams of becoming a mom, I want to make the 19th Middlesex the best place to live, work and raise a family. I don’t pretend to have all the answers or solutions but I’m committed to working with everyone I can to deliver results on the issues that matter most to the people in Tewksbury [and] Wilmington.”
Prinzivalli separated herself from the Democrat when it came to the boycott of Dandi- Lyons. Prinzivalli called him out for not supporting State Rep Jim Lyons’ family owned business that was under siege by the Chair of the Wilmington Democratic Town Committee. A committee that has endorsed Robertson’s campaign.
“I stand with Dandi-Lyons and will protect small business,” said Prinzivalli. “Mr. Robertson had a chance to stand up for small business but instead, he chose his party,” said Prinzivalli. “Mr. Robertson lacks leadership. If he can’t stand up to Erika Johnson’s attempt to destroy a Tewksbury business, how is he ever going to stand up to someone on Beacon Hill who’s pushing legislation that could harm our district?”
Prinzivalli says a perfect example is legislation that would make Massachusetts a Sanctuary State. Prinzivalli once again established herself as the only candidate who will vote “NO” on the bill. When given the chance during the debate, Robertson declined to state how he’d vote.
Early voting is underway through November 2. The general election is November 6th.
