STATE REPRESENTATIVE CANDIDATE MARJORIE DECKER HOSTS CAMPAIGN KICK-OFF
CAMBRIDGE - State Representative candidate Marjorie Decker celebrated her official Campaign Kick-Off Event on Thursday June 28th at her new campaign headquarters at 1678 Massachusetts Ave in Cambridge.
Decker’s supporters, family, friends and elected officials came together to officially kick-off her campaign for State Representative. Among those in attendance was current State Representative Alice Wolf, who now holds the seat that Decker is hoping to acquire.
“Marjorie has so much to offer the legislature - her progressive values, passion, energy, street smarts and her persistence are qualities that I treasure. Both our district and our state will be in good hands with her as our next State Representative,” said State Representative Wolf, who introduced Councilor Decker with words of support. “What we now have to do now is work hard to get Marjorie elected and know that when she is elected, we will always have our voices heard and our values represented on Beacon Hill.”
“I am humbled and honored by the opportunity to continue serving the people of Cambridge in the role of State Representative. If elected, I will continue to listening carefully to my constituents and advocate for the issues most important to them,” said Decker. “I believe serving on the City Council for the last 13 years will help me be a more effective legislator in building coalitions, working with advocates, and continuing the strong partnerships with the residents of Cambridge.”
Others in attendance included Cambridge Vice-Mayor Denise Simmons, Cambridge City Councilors Leland Cheung, Craig Kelley, David Maher and Tim Toomey, Chair of the Cambridge School Committee Marc McGovern, Boston City Councilor Felix Arroyo and Clerk Magistrate for the Middlesex Superior Court Michael Sullivan. Some were able to share a few words of support and encouragement with the room of Decker supporters.
“In a day with texting, emails, Facebook and Twitter, where we are able to instantly communicate, it seems something gets lost,” said Michael Sullivan. “With Marjorie nothing ever gets lost and it is because of the passion that she has for what she does. She can debate the big issues and there is always heart behind it. Marjorie Decker will make sure that heart is never forgotten.”
Decker’s supporters also heard from Campaign Chair and Cambridge resident Kevin Foster, who began his pledge of support with a story about how he is forever indebted to Decker, who introduced him to his wife years ago. Decker rounded out the speeches, thanking her family and friends, and ensuring that community’s voice is being heard.
