To the Editor:
To my fellow Chelmsford voters – it is time to fish or cut bait. Being one of many who collected signatures to reverse the effect of the redistricting that occurred over ten years ago to no avail, I challenge you now to take advantage of this one shot we have to get a Chelmsford resident to represent Chelmsford on Beacon Hill.
After September 6th if I hear a single Chelmsford resident complain about the lot we received from redistricting I will ask that person “did you vote for Alex Buck in the primary?” and the answer needs to be “YES”.
Alex is the person who WILL represent us and the entire 3rd Middlesex District. I have every faith in him because I know what he has done and what he is capable of. He has worked tirelessly for Chelmsford in many capacities including:
Town Meeting Representative
School Building Committee
Charter Review Committee
Alex rode the bus to Beacon Hill to lobby for more Chapter 70 aid for Chelmsford – I know this because we rode together.
Alex stood on the Route 3 overpass protesting the lack of sound barriers for our North Chelmsford neighborhood of Twiss, Leedburg and Waterford. I know this because I stood next to him. The sound barrier is currently under construction and we could not be more thrilled for those residents.
Alex lives in Chelmsford, has worked in Bedford and Waltham. Alex has dear friends who live in Waltham. He knows this district, he loves it, and he has walked all of it these last several months during the campaign.
These are a few things Alex is not:
He is not an attorney
He has not previously served 14 years on Beacon Hill
He actually does live in the voting district
Alex has the work ethic, the compassion, the reflective ability to serve Chelmsford and the 3rd Middlesex District well. The only way he can do that is if all of us vote on Thursday September 6th and make that vote for Alex Buck.
