I am writing in support of Sue Chalifoux Zephir in her candidacy for State Senate. When I consider a candidate for any office, I look for a person who has considerable experience for the work involved. A state senator needs to be able to work with colleagues in the senate, listen to citizens in the district and provide assistance whenever possible, and research the background of issues facing the cities and towns in our area. And this has to be done in a manner that respects both the people and the process in these endeavors.
Sue has those traits and skills as seen by her service to the City of Leominister, Ginny’s Thrift Shop, and protecting Leominster’s water source. She is thoughtful and considers the input from others and makes considered decisions.
Sue gets the big picture of government and knows that it often takes time to build consensus, but that effort pays off with a better product with more support in implementation.
I wholeheartedly support Sue Chalifoux Zephir to be our nest State Senator
