To the Editor:
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.
Sue Chalifoux Zephir has been in the public eye for many years. She is a longtime Leominster city councilor and has held many other leadership positions in the North Central Massachusetts area. She has run for various offices — sometimes with success and sometimes without success.
Like all of us, there are many things that Sue Chalifoux Zephir is and there are many things that she is not. We could take the time to list her accomplishments, visions and promises, but that is not the purpose of this letter. Simply put, Sue Chalifoux Zephir is honest and straightforward.
It is imperative that this country, this Commonwealth and this district start making integrity a priority again. It is for this basic reason that we support Sue Chalifoux Zephir for state senator and urge all of you to do so as well.
John M. Dombrowski
Editor’s Note: Dombrowski is an at-large city councilor in Leominster, while Salvatelli and Rowlands are former Leominster city councilors.
