24 days from now is the big day. Not Christmas, that’s 23 days away. No, I’m talking about the first big date for our campaign.
On December 26th at 5:00 pm, all of the signature forms must be turned in to the elections offices in Melrose and Wakefield. That’s the big date before the big dance.
We need to gather 150 certified signatures. Signatures can be disqualified for any number of reasons, so I won’t feel comfortable with less than 300 signatures.
Gathering signatures is probably the most time consuming and exhausting part of campaigning, but it’s also one of the most rewarding. I have had some great conversations with Melrose and Wakefield residents, conversations that let me know what is most important to you.
Democracy is alive and well in Massachusetts, and I am proud to be a candidate for this district.
