LETTER: Lyons Thanks Supporters And Makes Final Pitch

State Rep. Lyons thanks voters for their support and makes a final pitch heading into Election Day.

As this campaign approaches election day, I write to thank you, the voters and citizens. During my door-to-door campaign, I was warmly welcomed into the homes and neighborhoods of Andover, Tewksbury, Boxford, and North Andover throughout the last six months.

I deeply appreciate your kind greetings and helpful comments while visiting your communities. I have worked to campaign with the civility and decency that is worthy of you, the voter. I am proud that the Lyons campaign has focused squarely on the issues: increasing Local Aid, rolling back the 25% Sales Tax hike, ending rampant political patronage among Beacon Hill insiders, advocating openness and transparency in state government, stopping the waste of tax dollars in the EBT card scandal, ending bailouts of Lawrence City Hall, exposing hidden taxpayer subsidies for illegal aliens' health insurance premiums, promoting economic growth and job creation, standing up for working families, taxpayers, and small business owners.

These are some of the issues that we have been talking about in the neighborhoods of the 18th Essex District. In the sweltering heat of the summer, when it is not always easy to walk door-to-door (nor is it always easy for neighbors to greet us cheerfully - but you did!), a friend started referring to our campaign as the High Road campaign. And that phrase caught on among our friends and supporters. The High Road represents our positive message that speaks to our values, the values of the Merrimack Valley.

I make you this promise. If you honor me with re-election to a second term as your Representative, I pledge to carry those values - the High Road values of our Merrimack Valley - to the legislature.  I am acutely aware that no one in elected office is owed anything by the voters. I have worked hard to serve you and this District during the past two years. I trust that I have earned your respect; I hope that I have also earned your support. Thank you for your kind consideration. And thank you for the privilege of serving as your Representative.
State Rep. Jim Lyons

18th Essex District
