I hope this letter finds you in good health. It’s been almost two decades since we faced a situation like this: the deadline for nomination papers for the Lynn municipal elections was July 14th, and our current Ward One councilor Wayne Lozzi opted out of running. That means that come January 2024, there will be a new face representing Ward One. I’ve worked hard to canvass ward one, speaking to hundreds of residents directly. We all agree that if our city stays on its current trajectory, it will become unsustainable and throw our city into chaos. Between increasing class sizes at schools, outdated firefighting equipment, and skyrocketing property taxes – it’s clear something needs to change. I know what it feels like to live in instability – I had to make hard decisions as a youth so my family could pull through, and I’m willing to work just as hard so yours doesn’t have to either.
My years of involvement in civic and business matters show the commitment needed to be Ward One’s next leader. Moving the city forward requires working together, and I need your help to do it.
We must use local talent and resources to create solutions that permit our small businesses to succeed and provide affordable living for residents. I can lead conversations about Lynnfield Street, Broaway, replacement Pickering Middle School, traffic in the ward, developments, City budget items, and more. I know Lynn can rise to every occasion, so I am fighting to fix what needs fixing.
Now I am asking you to trust me as Ward One Councilor. I have the background, education, and experience necessary. I will welcome ideas from anyone, wanting to breakdown any existing barriers. I hope you will give me your vote September 5, 2023 and November 7, 2023.
