LETTER: Former Selectman Mike Champoux Endorses Sal DeFranco For State Senate, “His Passion For Doing What’s Right Will Supersede Political Partisanship”

Dear Editor,

It’s an interesting year for us in the second Essex and Middlesex district of Massachusetts. As a resident of Wilmington, my fellow Wildcats and I have been very fortunate to have been represented in the Massachusetts State Senate by Senator Bruce Tarr for many years. This year, however, as a result of redistricting, we are now faced with making a selection between two candidates to represent us. Both of whom are new to us.

While it is with some regret that we say goodbye to Senator Tarr, I find myself excited and enthusiastic to have the opportunity to welcome and elect a new person into our town, our district, and our state government. That person is Sal DeFranco. I have had the opportunity to meet and speak with Mr. DeFranco. He is tremendously engaging, intelligent, and trustworthy.  Moreover, he shares the values that I believe so many of us in our communities have.

As a small business owner, together with his wife, Dana, he understands what it means to run a business, make tough decisions, support a community, employ people, and build for the future.

As a veteran, a former Navy Seal, Mr. DeFranco clearly understands and embraces the values of service and working hard for the benefit of others.

His common-sense approach to the important issues signal the kind of person he is and what kind of Senator he will be. His passion for doing what is right for the people of the 2nd Essex and Middlesex Districts and the State of Massachusetts will supersede political partisanship. Sal will represent and work for us all to help us move our communities and our economy forward.

I am looking forward to our future in the district with him on Beacon Hill representing and protecting our interests. I encourage all of my neighbors in Wilmington, Tewksbury, Andover and the rest of the communities that make up the newly formed 2nd Essex & Middlesex to join me in supporting and voting for Sal DeFranco for State Senate.

Thank you

Mike Champoux
