I just wanted to fill you all in on the results of the Democratic Primary for State Representative race here in Stoneham and Winchester. I’ve been working for Jason Lewis’s campaign since June and as an active member of the Blue Mass Group community I wanted to thank you all for your support and let you know how it went.
We won by a 2 to 1 margin — winning decisively in both Stoneham and Winchester.
Thanks to all of the hundreds of volunteers who have been part of this grassroots effort. Together we have built a team which will fight hard for the issues which matter most to the residents of Stoneham and Winchester. It was a long campaign — Jason started canvassing way back in February. We have talked to thousands of voters on every street, in every neighborhood, in every precinct.
So come join our team, because now it’s on to the general election!
One of the things that has been really exciting about working on this campaign was watching the large crew of high school and college students who volunteered with the campaign this summer. They spent countless hours out knocking doors when many of their friends were kicking back and enjoying themselves. The campaign office got many calls and emails complementing the students who came to their door. What a great introduction to civic engagement this had to be for them. Ari did an outstanding job training and managing these guys.
