Dennis Rosa Endorsement
RICK MARCHAND IS FORMALLY ENDORSED BY REPRESENTATIVE ROSA
As your state representative it is extremely important for me that the seat in the House of Representatives that I have held for the last eight years goes to an outstanding individual that will transition seamlessly into state government. The individual I feel confident can do this job, is Leominster City Councilor Richard Marchand.
Rick has always been concerned for a balance in government and for fairness to taxpayers and the business community. As a former City Councilor and current State Representative, Rick and I have always shared concerns to champion and advocate for the Citizens of Leominster and it’s municipal employees.
Rick Marchand has served the Citizens of Leominster as a public servant currently serving his tenth term on the City Council where he was also elected by his colleagues on the City Council as their President five times and Vice President twice. Rick has served on thirty City Council sub committees and was appointed as a chairman seventeen times.
Recently, when I was approached by an advocacy group working with local at-risk-youth, knowing Rick was engaged in working with teens throughout his teaching career, I asked Rick to participate in the workshop being proposed for financial support by the Commonwealth. After reading his testimony on the impact this program had on our teens, I was able to submit and secure funding through an amendment to the 2017 state budget to support this valuable program.
An important piece of information I wish to share is that along with Rick Marchand’s decades of experience of working in government and all that is involved in the complexity of the legislative process, Rick’s transition from local government to the House of Representatives will be seamless with his professional experience and the fact that he is hiring an aide who has worked as legislative aide in Boston for sixteen years. He’s ready to represent all of us – day one.
Rick has a deep commitment to do everything he can to help veterans and their families; to fight for public education;; to champion for the most vulnerable in need; to bring great respect to senior citizens and their needs; to advocate as he has for a resolve to the crisis of opiate abuse. In addition to strong well-defined family and community values, Rick Marchand will do everything possible to support more job opportunities in Leominster.
In conclusion, as your State Representative I am extremely proud to endorse Rick Marchand for State Representative of the 4th Worcester District, Leominster.
