Dear Editor,This letter is in strong support of Erin Buckley for State Representative in the 19th Middlesex!I’ve known Erin for nearly a decade. Together with her husband, we were some of the very first people to both maintain and grow the Tewksbury Hospital Trail System as a destination for dog walkers, mountain bikers, and hikers. She has always been a passionate woman when it comes to being involved in her community. I am never surprised by the amazing job she does wherever she dedicates her time, be it in the State House as a Legislative Aide or her work for the Republican party in the 2016 election cycle. I can recall seeing her holding signs in Tewksbury, as well as surrounding towns, somehow finding time to go above and beyond in her job with the MassGOP and still volunteer in numerous positions and for numerous causes.Erin finds the time. But not everyone does. We have an opposing candidate in the Republican primary whose empty excuse for only having voted once in her life was that she was too busy building her career. Well, Erin was busy building her community at that same time! During that candidate’s massive voting gap, Erin found the time to work, graduate from university with the highest honors, be accepted to the most sought-after internship in Governor Baker’s Office, and then dedicate herself, full-time, to her community and the political causes she values so highly.There is no excuse for a lack of participation, especially from someone pretending to an elected seat. Erin Buckley will continue to dedicate herself to both Tewksbury and Wilmington — and we will better better off for it! Come September 4th, vote Erin Buckley for State Representative!Steve BagleyTewksbury, MA(Correction: Wilmington Apple accidentally excluded the the writer’s name, which has been updated.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
