Town Crier

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.”
