TEWKSBURY — In this November’s 19th Middlesex State Representative race, Republican candidate Alec DiFruscia will challenge incumbent Democrat Dave Robertson.
A lifelong resident of Tewksbury, DiFruscia attended Tewksbury Public Schools, and later attended George Washington University in Washington D.C. for college. He enters the race with the intent to positively impact the community he grew up in.
“I want to give back to the community that made me who I am,” he said on his campaign website.
Key campaign platforms for DiFruscia include tightening sanctions against illegal immigrants, prevent tax increases, pushing for transparency in the government, increasing local aid to schools, infrastructure, and first responders, improve the public school systems overall, and work to combat the opioid epidemic.
In order to be elected, DiFruscia plans on emphasizing face-to-face interaction with voters as a primary messaging tactic. He plans on applying his knowledge of the community to the position in order to best serve constituents.
“I know our community, I know our needs, and I can promise that if elected, I will have your back,” he said on his website. “Between now and election day, I’ll be out knocking doors in your neighborhood, standing out in front of Market Basket, and meeting people in every corner of our district.”
