MORE ON ELECTION: Letters submitted after deadline for Oct. 25 paper

(Continued)

Finegold continues to work tirelessly as our partner as we take the
final steps towards a spring 2013 groundbreaking for the Cormier
Youth Center.

Andover needs a state
senator who can make the tough decisions, stand up for his
constituents and handle challenging scenarios. We need someone with
the experience and skills who will continue to work for education,
our young people and our senior citizens. We need someone who
believes that we can move forward even in tough times. We need to
re-elect Barry Finegold as our state senator.

Lyons fights Beacon Hill tax bosses, works for working families

Editor, Townsman:

I am writing to ask voters in the 18th Essex District to cast their vote for Jim Lyons.

Lyons is a fellow parishioner and has been a friend to our family for many years. He is a great father and husband. He is intelligent, honest, extremely capable, and genuinely humble. Lyons always seeks to do the right thing: help the needy; right the wrong; and bring common sense solutions to our state economy.

As a small business owner for many years he knows the rewards of hard work and the financial struggles that life can put you through. He understands how to work through financial slowdowns and come out the other side with honor and satisfaction. He stands on the side of the little guy against the powerful and the corrupt. He has exposed the huge waste of our state finances going to illegal aliens. Lyons fights against the big tax bosses on Beacon Hill and works diligently to increase local aid to our working families.

The choice is clear: the political insider and big tax and spend L’Italien, or Lyons, the person who stands with us to heal the woes of our great state and bring financial health to our people. Please cast your vote for Jim Lyons on Nov. 6.
