Sullivan Submits Signatures For State Rep Candidacy
Brockton City Councilor is one of four Democratic candidates.
Brockton City Councilor Robert Sullivan announced last week that his State Rep campaign is making significant steps in the political process. Sullivan recently filed the necessary signatures to run for the 11th Plymouth District of Massachusetts.
Sullivan is one of four Democratic candidates. Other candidates include fellow City Councilor Jass Stewart, Brockton attorney and Easton resident Claire Cronin and Southeastern Regional School Committee member Mark Linde.
Below is a statement from Sullivan's campaign:
Robert F. Sullivan, Democratic candidate for State Representative in the 11th Plymouth District, has announced that he has collected the necessary signatures for his campaign for the Massachusetts House serving Easton (Precincts 1-5) & Brockton (Ward 1 A-D, Ward 3-D, Ward 7-C and 7-D) and all signatures have been properly certified by the Town Clerk in Easton and the Elections Department in Brockton.
"I am honored that so many Easton and Brockton residents signed my nomination papers and support my campaign for State Representative" said Sullivan.
On Tuesday, May 1, 2012, Sullivan submitted the certified signatures to the Massachusetts Secretary of State's office and he is now officially on the Democratic Primary ballot as a candidate for State Representative. The Primary will be held on Thursday, September 6, 2012. All registered Democrats and Unenrolled/Independents can vote in the Primary election.
"This is an important election for the people of Easton and Brockton. We need a new State Representative for the new 11th Plymouth District.
We need to elect someone who has experience, qualifications and proven leadership abilities. As a Town Attorney (Randolph, MA since 2009) I have a full understanding of Town issues and concerns, as a City Councilor (since 2006) I have real municipal finance experience having conducted six (6) budgets each over $360 million dollars, and as a former State House Legal Counsel (for the Joint Committee on Election Laws) I have the ability to draft important legislation that will benefit our Community and Commonwealth. In addition, as a small business owner, I clearly understand fiscal responsibility and economic growth. As a father, husband, and concerned resident I believe that the future of our District depends on electing a qualified, experienced, and independent State Representative" said Sullivan.
"The hundreds and hundreds of Easton and Brockton residents who signed my nomination sheets proves that the Democrat and Unenrolled/Independent voters appreciate a candidate with proven experience who will bring about results and positive change on Beacon Hill.
I look forward to the next four (4) months of campaigning, walking the neighborhoods, knocking on doors and meeting the voters of the District" said Sullivan.
