In this week's Leominster Champion:
To the Editor:
Have you ever had to review résumés of job applicants and decide who to hire? That’s how I think about voting for elected officials — who has the most relevant background, learned skills, and demonstrated commitment to do the job well? Also, who can get up to speed the quickest?
In the primary race for Leominster’s state representative, the person with the best résumé is Natalie Higgins. I’ve been fortunate enough to talk with both Democratic candidates in the past year, and I believe Ms. Higgins has the right temperament, skills and experience to represent us at the state level. She already has experience working in the State House, and she currently directs an organization that advocates statewide for better public education. Additionally, she knows how to listen to and advocate for the underrepresented, thanks to her work experience and her legal training. Ms. Higgins knows what issues matter to Leominster — education, health care and behavioral health, and jobs — because she grew up here.
I encourage you to join me and “hire” the best Democratic candidate for state representative by voting for Natalie Higgins on Thursday, Sept. 8.
