THANK YOU BROOKLINE

We won the Democratic primary on September 4 with 56% of the vote! I will succeed retiring Representative Frank Smizik in the Massachusetts House of Representatives in January 2019 to represent the 15th Norfolk District.

I want to thank my opponent, Rebecca Stone. She ran a great race, and gave voice to important issues in our community. I share many of the concerns she raised, and will always welcome her ideas and opinions in the years to come.

Thank you to my family. My brother helped with early outreach. My father drove up from Virginia to help with election day. My children have been extremely patient with daddy, and have been so helpful picking out neckties, counting stacks of literature, and carefully sticking stamps on letters. And my wife Jenn, a civil engineer, has spent the last year supporting me in every way imaginable.

I also want to thank Representative Smizik, who has advocated for Brookline and for so many important issues including housing, public education, and the environment. He was our representative in the House for 18 years, and served for decades before that within the Town of Brookline. He did so side-by-side with Julie Johnson, herself a political dynamo on both local and state issues. Thank you both, Frank and Julie.

I want to thank the many hundreds of people who believed in this campaign enough to contribute sweat, equity, or both. We proved once again that collaborating broadly and being inclusive generates the best results. I will forever be grateful to everyone who believed in me, and who shares the values of this campaign.

Finally, I want to thank the 3,884 people in Brookline who cast their vote for Tommy Vitolo. I’m deeply humbled.

I’m going to work hard each and every day to provide excellent constituent service, to advocate for Brookline, and to fight for our shared values — for social and economic justice, for public education, and for the environment. To everyone who voted for my opponent: I’m going to work just as hard for you too. And to everyone who didn’t make it to the polls today — you too are my constituents, and I’ll be there for you as well.

Thank you everyone. Our next election day is Tuesday, November 6. Let’s get to work shaping our shared future.
