THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2023 Page 3 ~ LETTER TO THE EDITOR ~ I believe there is only one candidate for the job Dear Friends and fellow Revere voters, On September 19th the city will go to the polls to vote in Revere’s Primary Election for Mayor. Over the past few months, I’ve received several emails and texts asking me who I believe is the most qualifi ed candidate. I believe there is only one candidate with the experience and temperament for the job, Dan Rizzo. Dan’s fi rst tenure as mayor was met with some extreme adversities. The fi rst ever tornado that devastated many of our neighbors’ homes. A winter that paralyzed not just Revere, but the entire state. And of course, the missed opportunity to host one of the most successful casinos on the east coast. Yet, through all these adversities Mayor Rizzo maintained his composure, he understood the struggles we were going through and rose to the challenges. In essence, he did the job that was expected of him, and he did it well. Unfortunately, during this time, there were people lurking in the weeds looking to take advantage of the situation while Mayor Rizzo was focused on restoring harmony to our city. It quickly became apparent that these people lurking in the weeds, waiting for an opportunity to strike, were only concerned with their own interests and agenda. Something that over the last administration became clearly obvious. Once they accomplished their goals, they abruptly left Revere for other personal opportunities, leaving Revere in disarray. ~ POLITICAL ENDORSEMENT ~ The Greater Boston Labor Council endorses Alexander Rhalimi for Revere City Council at Large R epresenting more than 100,000 hardworking families, 24 cities and towns, and dozens of affi liated unions, the Greater Boston Labor Council released a statement endorsing Alexander Rhalimi for Revere City Council at Large. Darlene Lombos, chief offi cer and Executive Secretary of the Council released this statement: “I am pleased to inform you that the Greater Boston Labor Council has endorsed your candidacy for Revere City Council at Large. Thank you for engaging in our endorsement process and for pledging to fi ght together for our communities.” In Alexander Rhalimi, we fi nd a candidate who isn’t just running for offi ce, but running to uplift our community. His diverse policy platform reflects his unwavering dedication to a Revere that is inclusive, prosperous, and responsive to the evolving needs of its diverse residents. As we stand at the crossroads of our city’s future, let us choose a leader who will guide us toward progress and unity. Let us choose Alexander Rhalimi for Revere Councillor at Large. Alexander Rhalimi, candidate for Councillor at Large, Email: Vote@rhalimiforrevere.org Website: www.rhalimiforrevere.org Phone number 617.312.4755 During his tenure as mayor, Dan Rizzo negotiated positive commercial development like Market Basket while others were burdening our city with apartment buildings and condominiums – thousands of them. This type of development only benefi tted the developers and not the residents of Revere. While there is very little we can do to change these facts now, we can strive to get Revere back-ontrack. To do this we need to restore strong qualifi ed and compassionate leadership. I believe that starts with re-electing Dan Rizzo as Mayor of Revere. To that end, I ask that you please consider voting for Dan Rizzo in the September primary and again in the November General Election. Thank you for your time, understanding and most importantly, your consideration. Revere needs our help now. Respectfully, Richard Ireton HAVE A SAFE & HAPPY LABOR DAY!
