To the Residents of Woburn:
I am writing to you today to let you know about my endorsement of State Senator Kenneth J. Donnelly for re-election in this year’s state election on November 6, 2012.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Ken for the past several years now, and through serving with him in the State Legislature for the past four years. Ken has become a great friend and great partner in representing the best interests of the taxpayers of the City of Woburn on Beacon Hill. He is a man of great integrity and character who has been a full-time, dedicated legislator on behalf of the residents of not only Woburn, but Arlington, Lexington, Bedford, Burlington and Billerica.
During our time in the Legislature, Ken has been a leader on many issues, including creating jobs, workforce training, increasing funding for education and protecting the rights of all citizens. Most importantly, Ken has done a great job in making sure that legislation passed in the Legislature is mindful of the hard working family values of the people he represents. Ken has also lead by example and has become a legislator whose input on issues is highly respected and incorporated into the work that is done in the State Senate.
One aspect of Ken’s tenure as State Senator that I have come to greatly admire is that he has kept his promise to be a State Senator for all the communities he represents by attending community events and setting up office hours in each community to make sure he stays in touch with those whom he represents.
I have no doubt in my mind that Ken is right candidate to continue serving as State Senator for the 4th Middlesex District. I respectfully ask that you support my colleague and my friend Ken Donnelly on November 6th so that we can continue working together to make a difference on behalf of the communities we represent.
James J. Dwyer
30th Middlesex District
