To the Editor:
Election Day is just around the corner. While you may be a little turned off by this year’s presidential election, there are local elections that depend on every single vote. My older sister, Natalie Higgins, is running for state representative for the City of Leominster.
Everyone who knows Natalie and our family knows that we’re small business owners through and through. My parents own and run an auto parts store, which helped put both of us through college — making Natalie and me the first and second people in our family to attend college. She understands firsthand the value of small businesses, both to working families and to the economy of our community.
She is a great choice for Leominster; the amount of people Natalie and her team have spoken to about the issues in this city amazes me each day. I believe Natalie is the right choice for state representative, and not just because she is my sister. As is often the case with siblings, we don’t always agree on everything. But the wonderful thing about Nat is that she listens and wants to understand everyone’s views on the important issues that are impacting our state.
On Tuesday, Nov. 8, I enthusiastically encourage you to vote Natalie Higgins for state representative.
