10/31 - Former and current city councilors support Chalifoux Zephir
We write this letter in the midst of a political climate at all levels of government that can only be described as embarrassing. Half truths, mistruths and outright misrepresentations, often posted on social media with impunity, have become the norm, with little to no accountability. This lack of scrutiny is manifested by a news media, particularly at the local level, that simply does not have the resources to adequately cover the issues and the candidates.
10/31 - Budd: Tran’s focus not on ‘where our district needs it most’
Our community deserves transparency from an advocate who will work for the entire district based on our needs. I will be voting Sue Chalifoux Zephir for State Senate, as her platform and ideas fall in line with my own.
Sen. Dean Tran voted against the Civics Education Bill. He was one of only four who voted no. It thankfully moved to the House and unanimously passed. Our students deserve a more robust education.

Sue was elected to five terms on the Leominster City Council, serving as City Council president, chairwoman of the Finance Committee and chairwoman of the Committee on Schools.

I have known Sue Chalifoux Zephir for many years. She has always been an advocate for schools, students, and educators. For this reason, I am endorsing Sue to be the state senator of the Worcester and Middlesex District.

10/31 - Weldon: Choose Chalifoux Zephir for ‘common sense budget policy’
I support Sue Chalifoux Zephir for several reasons. But I would like to highlight one special distinction between Zephir and her opponent, Dean Tran.
In the forum on FLAP-TV before the 2017 special election, Tran claimed that his plans for expensive tax cuts would not require budget cuts or new revenue, but could be paid for by tax cuts.
10/26 - Letter: Chalifoux Zephir will 'have our backs'
What motivates someone to run for state senator? Sue Chalifoux Zephir’s work as executive director of Ginny’s Helping Hand, the local food pantry, and her five-term membership in the Leominster City Council, along with several conversations I’ve had with her, offer insight into what motivates her.
