I'm really worried. You may have heard that HealthAlliance is planning to close crucial and needed patient care departments including pediatrics. What you may not know is this:
Sue Chalifoux Zephir is the only candidate for State Senate to lead the charge against this disastrous and potentially catastrophic decision that will hurt local families.
I want Sue as our State Senator to support the health of our kids, family, and community.
I've been on Fitchburg School Committee since 2008, and care deeply about the health and education of our children.
Sue supports civics Education in our schools. Children of Fitchburg and our region need to have a deep and meaningful understanding of civics which is essential for them to grow up to be productive citizens.
Being a member of the Legislature includes working productively with our delegation of elected officials from North Central Massachusetts.
Sue is the only candidate for State Senate who was elected president of the City Council by her peers. They elected her because of her proven ability to collaborate and to lead.
Her work expanding Ginny's Helping Hand has been transformational for many regional families. She brings a strong background of financial smarts, and collaboration and will fight for our district to get needed funds for public school, our seniors, vets, and those with special needs.
