Where the color blue prevailed. From the campaign trail, Monday 8/13/18

Wow!!! Volunteers John & David and I have put up 107 signs since Saturday, with more to go. We covered Ward 1 in South Attleboro, Ward 2 and 6 on both sides of Capron Park, down West Street, South Ave., County St., South Main St, Thurber, and sections of Oak Hill Ave. We have lots of work to do in other sections of our city but time still permits.

Our sign holders were delighted to receive a magnetic bumper sticker and a button. We found ourselves frequently sharing a yard with Jim Hawkins signs, where the color blue prevailed. We passed Tara Major (Jim Hawkins administrative asst.) putting up a big Hawkins sign on Rome Blvd. Dan and Monica on Rome Blvd. waved at us and asked for a matching sign on the other side of their lawn.

We were having so much fun, no one cared that it was raining most of the day.

Happiness prevailed throughout our visits. Children smiled, dogs even stopped barking once they realized we were welcomed at their homes. This is not my triumph. But rather, I am noticing that people are celebrating a new spirit in the city.

My supporters want better education, smaller classes, outreach to seniors, protection of our environment from possible pipelines and asphalt plants, more transparency within the city council, and cooperation between the city council and our mayor, Paul Heroux.

My supporters want to see Highland Country Club turned into a beautiful park for the entire city and open spaces protected for our enjoyment.

My supporters want Attleboro to grow into a city that cherishes and protects our human rights and where families can feel safe and secure. They want a city that takes care of struggling citizens, offering food and housing to those in need. Our citizens enjoy music in Capron Park, a wonderful zoo, and walking on trails in protected forests.

We love Attleboro and want to celebrate living here. More signs to put up tomorrow.

Ty Endorses: Jim Hawkins for State Rep of Attleboro

Jim Hawkins met with a well attended, enthusiastic crowd this evening at his kickoff event in Attleboro’s Industrial museum. I gotta tell you, Jim is exceeding my expectations. He is an extremely dedicated, tireless battler for social justice. If you measure a state legislator by how much he cares, how hard he works, and how effective he tries to be…. well, Jim is a 10.
I never thought I’d ever say this… but I am honored to have finished second to Jim in the state rep primary last winter.
When I am knocking on doors and meeting Attleboro folks day after day, hour after hour, it’s to get the opportunity to work with Jim Hawkins. Together, we can do our piece in making life better for citizens of Attleboro.
Thanks for all you are doing, Jim.

Team Ty for Jim Hawkins

To my faithful team: Having your wonderful support and constant help, sign holding, canvassing, social media (Jax), phone calls, and much, much more….. has been one of the most memorable, touching experiences of my life. I kid you not. Now I am offering each of you an opportunity to complete this special election on behalf of Jim Hawkins, the Democratic nominee for state rep.

I am endorsing Jim in the April 3 election. Jim is very qualified to be a state rep. He is intelligent, has a good heart, and is very knowledgeable about Attleboro’s educational needs. This is a critical election to keep Attleboro a progressive city and a positive voice in the state house.
I canvassed homes for Jim five hours today. I am certain that I convinced at least half a dozen people who had supported my candidacy to also support Jim. We can help deliver the election to Jim. Our 402 votes could be helpful.
