THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, January 22, 2016

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

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
