But going back to the primary race for a moment, the race was refreshingly clean, thoughtful, and well-fought. Boxford resident Robert Cronin established a high-visibility office at the corners of Central and Main streets in Georgetown, and aggressively worked the district, but in the end, fell short in a valiant race. The race also saw beloved Georgetown Selectman Gary Fowler handily take the win in Georgetown, and bring sincerity, stability, wit and wisdom to the race, but remain a distance third.
The big prize in this primary race went to the voters who had a chance to meet and discuss current issues with local candidates, and most importantly, see, hear, and interact with a businessman, not a lawyer. A worker, not an extremist.
“We were thrilled to have such a lively, interactive Republican primary” state committeewoman Kim Incampo said. “These were great candidates who worked incredibly hard in the district to get their message out and energize the voters,” she explained.“We are very excited to put our energy behind Lenny and help his finish the race to Victory in November.”
And that’s what the race will be about in November: do we keep electing extremists and lawyers, do we keep our communities struggling to provide for our students, our seniors, and struggling families, or do we begin to bring balance to Beacon Hill, and elect someone with business sense. Someone who’s down to earth and not wrapped in an extremist bubble?
“Lenny Mirra is the best candidate at the right time for the district,” West Newbury selectman Glenn Kemper related as he detailed the need to have balance and vote-in a person with business experience to represent the district: “His hard work and experience is what the district needs. We need someone fighting for the district and as a Selectman that’s what I look for”, Selectman Kemper concluded.
Do the right thing, get a lawn sign now. Put it up. Donate $20 (we can all do that), and ask your neighbors to do the same. Remember, you’ll be fighting against big unions from around the state and the country who are already lining up to contribute to he extremist lawyer’s further left than imaginable sweet-talking agenda.And, most importantly, in November, Vote Mirra.
