LETTER: Former Police Chief Endorses Miceli
Former chief calls incumbent "diligent" and "noncompromising."
Letter to the Editor,
I have known Representative James Miceli for approximately thirty-five years. He is one of the most dedicated, tenacious, honest and compassionate advocates for his constituents that I have ever witnessed in any form of government. All these years, he has demonstrated the highest level of integrity. The fire that has burned within him in fighting for Tewksbury and Wilmington has never diminished.
In my tenure as Chief of Police in Tewksbury, it was my honor and pleasure to work with Representative Miceli on numerous issues. No individual worked harder providing assistance with policy positions of the Department of Mental Health when they moved from Danvers to Tewksbury. His efforts on this sensitive matter helped protect Tewksbury Hospital’s position as a jewel in the community that continues to flourish today. He was diligent and noncompromising when it came to insuring the safety of the clients, residents and staff. I can assure you, to a virtual certainty, that if it were not for his efforts and committement to this endeavor the results would have been far different.
When you go to the polls on November 6th, I urge you to consider sending Representative James Miceli back to the State House. Take into consideration what he has done in the past. Vote for him because you know what he stands for and what we will get in the future.
John R. Mackey
Retired Police Chief, Tewksbury
