In today's Sentinel & Enterprise:
As a lifelong Leominster resident, small-business owner, veteran, former Ward 1 city councilor and aide to two Leominster state representatives (the late Mary Jane Simmons and Dennis Rosa), I am proud to cast my ballot for Natalie Higgins for state representative.
For the last 10 years, Natalie has dedicated her life to community service, as a rape crisis counselor, attorney and nonrofit director, and she also has extensive state-level policy experience.
Natalie has spent the last eight months running a campaign focused on voter outreach and discussing their concerns, proving that she cares about the issues that matter the most to them.
In fact, I met Natalie when she came to my door and after talking to her, I knew she had the education, skills and passion for Leominster that would make her the strongest advocate for our community.
As a past president of the Leominster Historical Society, I was amazed at how knowledgeable Natalie was of Leominster's history. And as a veteran and past post-commander of the Disabled American Veterans in Leominster, I appreciate Natalie's commitment to understanding the complexities of veterans' issues in our community.
Please join me in voting for Natalie Higgins for Leominster's next state representative on Nov. 8!
