THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, January 22, 2016

STEVE MORABITO | from page 3 in my hometown of Revere. While it is a national problem, the threat of terrorism has people extremely frightened and it is the concern I hear about the most. We must never forget the Boston Marathon bombing. A final concern that I often hear from people is the increase in gun violence in the communities within the district and it is taking place in every area including places such as Beacon Hill. As is the norm in a Presidential election year, we hear a lot of rhetoric being thrown around between candidates. Unfortunately in this election, certain viewpoints are particularly harsh in tone and social impact. As someone who is

the child of immigrants, I saw how hard my grandparents and my mother worked to create a good life in America. I see that same spirit in the many hardworking citizens of the senate district that may have been born elsewhere but now call America home. So, when I hear people demonize our fellow citizens simply because of where they were born, it offends me personally. The hardworking people of this country need someone who understands what it’s like to work for a living. As soon as I was old enough to work, I did. I worked many years in retail at Johnnie’s Foodmaster Supermarkets as a Manager, a job

that I loved because I got to interact with people and help them in any way that I could. It was that experience that made me want to become a city councilor. It was while working at Johnnie’s Foodmaster Supermarkets that I pursued a college education at Salem State University receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. Also, it was while working at Johnnie’s that I found I really enjoyed helping people. I have continued to help people in my community through my work on the City Council and I was very humbled to see that work rewarded when the people of Revere reelected me this past fall. I am currently a Realtor for Century 21 Northshore. This position

has helped me to gain understanding of the housing market and its implications for folks seeking to buy homes. Like at Johnnie’s Foodmaster Supermarkets, I feel that this job also allows me to help people in reaching one of the most important decisions they make in a lifetime: Buying a house. Many of the issues that my constituents are talking to me about, some of which I’ve mentioned, cannot be solved through my work on the city council alone. However, I still want to help solve these problems not only for my friends and supporters in Revere but for the good people of the Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Cambridge, Chinatown, East Boston, the North End, and Winthrop and

everywhere in between. I have been a tireless advocate for the people of Revere and I want to bring my energy and vigor to Beacon Hill to tackle not only the small problems that are easily fixed, but the larger ones that aren’t easily fixed. I said that whoever succeeds Senator Petruccelli has some large shoes to fill. I believe that I am that person. I pledge to build on what Senator Petruccelli has accomplished. I am therefore announcing my candidacy for State Senator for the First Suffolk & Middlesex district of Massachusetts. I will campaign in every neighborhood in the district. I look forward to personally meeting the voters of the district to learn about their concerns and suggestions. Sincerely, Steven Morabito Candidate for State Senator

continued success, good health, and prosperity as they transition into the private sector. Anthony leaves behind a legacy of hard work and dedicated service to his constituents, and can be proud of his many contributions he has made both as a Representative and Senator. I am running for this seat because I know firsthand how important it is to have experienced, hardworking representation on Beacon Hill. Decisions made there have a direct impact on all of us. Education, Public Safety, Transportation and Infrastructure, and Finances all are affected through legislation and budgeting. I will bring a unique perspective by way of understanding the needs and real life concerns of all residents throughout the senatorial district. As Mayor, we were recognized in 2014 and 2015 by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for excellence in budgeting; in just the last 4 years alone, crime has decreased by over 15%; and in 2014, Revere High School was recognized by the National Center for Urban School Transformation for improvements over a plethora of metrics that were analyzed and scored, as the Gold Medal Winner – #1 in the nation! We’ve made commitments to parks and playgrounds, and have upgraded our Central Business district, along with our aging infrastructure. I know, much of this would not have been possible without the help of our state delegation and that is why effective leadership is so necessary. Please join me as we campaign throughout the various communities and talk about the issues that contribute to the quality of life we all so desire. Thank you, Dan Rizzo Candidate for State Senate First Suffolk and Middlesex district
