Today, State Representative Angelo D’Emilia has announced he will run for re-election to the 8th Plymouth District, comprised of Bridgewater and Raynham. D’Emilia has served the citizens of Bridgewater and Raynham since he was first elected in 2010.
“I am proud of the accomplishments of my first two terms in restoring local aid, securing funding for mosquito control and holding the line on tax increases,” said D’Emilia. “However, there is much more I would like to accomplish. We need to do more to improve our economy and provide more jobs for our citizens, and we need to do more to reform our state government to eliminate waste and fraud.”
The campaign is holding a kickoff Thursday, March 6th, at the Portuguese Holy Ghost Society at 352 Broad St. in Bridgewater. There will be a cocktail hour from 5:30 – 6:30pm and the reception will be from 6:30-8:30pm. The host committee includes Gubernatorial Candidate Charlie Baker, House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R – North Reading), Representative Vinny deMacedo (R – Plymouth), District Attorney Tim Cruz, and Sheriffs Tom Hogdson and Joe McDonald. The public is welcome to attend.
