TELL US: What Do You Want in a State Rep?

What are the most pressing concerns for you in electing a new representative on Beacon Hill?

While there is a lot of hubbub around town on who may or may not end up in the race to succeed Joyce Spiliotis, we'd like to ask a related question.

What are you looking for in your next state representative?

The late Spiliotis' political career was marked by her constituent services -- she was a popular representative in Peabody, had close relationships with many of her constituents and was regarded as a tireless advocate for their concerns.

So what are the most pressing concerns for you in electing a new representative on Beacon Hill?

Excellent description by Jerry Halberstadt! Someone that can represent the needs of the City Of Peabody,Can work with our neighboring legislators. Someone that can interpret new laws and vote for all the people even if it is not popular with the majority.
