Since 2007, I have served as Anthony Galluccio’s Chief of Staff. In that position, I played a key role in preparing legislation, negotiating through the budget process, and tirelessly working to ensure that the people of Massachusetts retain their core services, such as housing, education, public safety, healthcare, and both job retention and job creation. My experience on Beacon Hill has molded my style and mission – that people need the help of government, from working families and veterans, to senior citizens, educators, and public safety officials.
My wife Tricia is a graduate of the Saugus public school system and is a special needs teacher at the LABBB Collaborative in Belmont. Together, we are raising our sons Matthew and Sal to know the value of a hard work and dedication to their community. Each of them is attending public schools here in Everett. Like you, I am concerned for the future that lies ahead for them both.
My leadership on the Council was rewarded through my many Chairmanships – such as the Budget and Finance Committees. Ultimately, I was unanimously elected to serve as President of the Council in 2007. The citizens of Everett also showed their confidence and support by giving me the highest vote total of any Councilor in the last three city elections.
Throughout my time in office, I pledge to continue advocating for policies that strengthen the long-term health of our economy and create jobs, work with local small businesses, and help working families keep their homes and pay their bills. I will be an ardent voice for new investments in innovative, clean and renewable sources of energy to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. I will work with the local communities I represent to ensure that our students have the tools to compete and succeed in a global economy. And, I will make constituent services a top priority in every community throughout the District.
Once again, I humbly ask for your support and look forward to speaking with you all again soon. Until then, I hope you will take the time to look at our newly launched website – www.salforsenate.com.
