Letter: Finegold is responsive

The Andover Townsman

---- — Editor, Townsman:

The true test of a state senator is his

responsiveness to local issues.

In my years in town government I

have called upon Barry Finegold several times during his term as

state senator. Senator Finegold supported municipal health insurance

reform legislation that meant meaningful savings for taxpayers in

Andover. He strongly supported the bill’s passage in the Senate

and the result was, Andover saved over $1,000,000 in insurance

premiums. I feel that Andover doesn’t often get its fair share of

local aid from the state. In response, I feel Finegold was able to help

Andover get the largest allocation of education money ever.

Additionally, Finegold pushed for and achieved increased

levels of unrestricted government aid for Andover for this fiscal


In my estimation, Finegold

consistently delivers for Andover. He works hard to see that the town

and its residents thrive.

If you value a representative who works

tirelessly and is responsive to Andover, Senator Finegold is your

candidate. He has earned my vote on Nov. 6 because he

gets the job done.
