  1. She was a plant here she only moved her to run for a seat. Her campaign is her fiancé who dies everything for her behind the scenes.

  2. You got that right, Grl! Pina is a puppet and a plant. Her entire campaign is her fiancé (from Abington) and Joe Dunn of the Tewksbury RTC (from New Bedford). They all just moved here and need to leave! Vulgar, ignorant, and unwanted! They attacked and insulted the late Rep. Miceli when he was very ill. They have NO SHAME!

  3. I spent way more $ in the 2 elections Ive ran in Tewksbury for Planning Board and Board of Health than ms Meuse is for state rep. that is pitiful unless you spend 10k for that position
