Support Moran for state representative

To the editor:

As the late Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill, Jr. used to say: “All politics is local.”All of our democracy starts at the local level as a government by the people and for the people.

The most important people that we can elect are often those at the closest level to us.

I favor Frank Moran as our next state representative in the 17th Essex District. Moran has a calm way about diffusing people that try to create contentions at City Council meetings in a civilized manner without seeking to be an opportunist. Moran is a good diplomat. Moran is a problem solver. Moran weighs the issues and is methodical and organized in his approach. Moran has the skills and attributes to be a good legislator.

Moran also cares about ordinary people. Moran’s opponent Kevin Cuff served as the executive director of the Massachusetts Mortgage Bankers Association. He cares more about his big banker friends than he does about the people of Lawrence and the 17th Essex District.

Please vote for Frank Moran. He cares about the people of Lawrence, Methuen and Andover that he will honorably represent at the Statehouse.
