A Letter from State Senator-elect Jason Lewis:
I’m writing to thank the voters of Malden, Melrose, Reading, Stoneham, Wakefield, and Winchester for coming out to vote in the special election for State Senate last Tuesday, April 1. I’m honored and humbled that you have chosen me to serve as your next State Senator.
I congratulate my opponent Monica Medeiros. It was a spirited campaign and a good, healthy exchange of ideas. Although there are issues that Monica and I disagree on, we certainly agree on the need to support our communities and the need for a strong partnership between our state and local governments. I thank Monica for her service on the Melrose Board of Alderman, and I look forward to working together.
My success on election day would not have been possible without the incredible dedication and hard work of our tireless volunteers who made phone calls and canvassed from the beginning of this campaign right up until the polls closed at 8pm on election night — in the cold, in the snow, in the rain. This campaign was an amazing team effort.
I’m excited to get to work on behalf of all the communities in the 5th Middlesex District: pursuing local economic development opportunities that improve the quality of life in our communities; fighting for fair and adequate funding for all our public schools; championing quality, affordable healthcare for our families, seniors, and small businesses; and continuing to drive reforms that make our state government more accountable and responsive to our needs.
In the coming weeks and months, I hope to meet many more people across the district and continue learning about the needs and concerns in each of our communities. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have any issue, concern, or suggestion that you would like to discuss. I look forward to our work together to strengthen our communities and move our Commonwealth forward.
5th Middlesex District
