Boxford should vote for Barbara L’Italien for state rep for Precinct 2. Barbara played a crucial role in getting legislation passed requiring MassDOT to fund a study of road salt pollution of wells in Boxford along I-95. As Vice Chair of Ways and Means she was able to get immediate funding from this year’s budget.
Her bi-partisan effort on legislation for the salt study, is just part of the story. Ms. L’Italien has worked across the aisle on reform of pensions, streamlining bureaucracy, and dissolution of Mass Turnpike Authority.
Ms. L’Italien has impressed me with her intelligence, hard work and balanced and reasonable approach to budgeting. We are lucky to have her representing Boxford precinct 2 as well as precincts in neighboring towns.
