In the same week, Jeff was endorsed by GREY2K USA, a nationwide effort to end dog racing and leaders in the statewide effort to end dog racing int he Commonwealth.
These are just a small number of the groups and individuals that have gathered to support Jeff Thielman in his race to replace Jim Marzilli and represent Arlington and West Medford on Beacon Hill. Thielman, a two-term Arlington School Committee member and nationally recognized leader in inner-city education kicked off his campaign last week and was introduced by Arlington activist Joe Curro. Curro recalled the hard work, attention to detail and commitment to his constituents that have been the hallmark of Thielman’s tenure on the Arlington School Committee.
A series of well-attended community events over the past week, have given Thielman the opportunity to share his experience working with inner-city communities to build schools throughout the nation, and his efforts on behalf of Spy Pond here in the 23rd Middlesex. As he addresses supports and others, Thielman has answered questions about pressing statewide issues including the Governor’s gambling proposal, the challenges facing Arlington and Medford in the area of local aid, and the tremendous improvement in the Arlington Public Schools over the past years.
A two term member of the Arlington School Committee and long-time member of the Arlington Town Meeting, Thielman believes that public service is a partnership that requires any elected official to listen carefully to the concerns and needs of his constituents.
