A Peek In To Politics

Congratulations Brian Arrigo And Family

I say it proudly like so many other citizens of Revere

You have made history today

Taking your passion and turning it into action

Setting a good example and wanting others to follow

Today I got to witness my nephew

Win the race for Mayor

In the city of Revere, Massachusetts

It feels to good to be true

He worked hard with his team Arrigo

All his loyal supporters that took their time to come out to vote

Making today a huge victory

Not just because he beat his opponent

In the toughest race he ever had to face

Did I mention by only 117 votes

Because he ran an honest campaign

He follows his heart

He believes in and loves Revere

He wants to see changes that make the city wonderful

There are many problems the city of Revere faces

Just like any other city

He is willing to overlook the bad

So he can focus on the good

Then do all he can to make it better

He promised to try his best

Reminding everyone he is put in office to serve the people

Not for personal gain or favors

He wants the people of Revere to speak up

So he can work hand and hand for the next four years

Hoping to bring about change , a great positive attitude and direction

That hold other people up to the highest of standards

Leaving dirty politics

Games people play

Rediculious false rumors

That lead to lies and sneaky tricks

All I can say about what I have seen

Shame on you

What I did learn from sign holding

It's a lot of hard work

I came early and left exhausted and didn't want to hold another sign ever

Certainly not tomorrow morning and again tomorrow night

Is it all worth it ?

Seeing other people's dedication and loyalty

Little children with their mom and dad

Side by side

They were not getting paid

They were learning responsibility and many valuable lessons

One woman said it best

It brings strangers together

Bonding like family

I can say with a horse ,raspy voice

Yes

Leaving everyone else to do all the rest

The long hours and endless things that make it all happen

To get the word out

So people can trust you and put their faith in you

From all races and religions

That you are the right person for the job

All you need is a chance

You gave Brian Arrigo that opportunity today

I am grateful and so happy for everyone

All I want is a good night sleep

As soon as my head hits my pillow

My part is over

The real challenge begins

Day after day

Helping others so they can help themselves

Watch Revere grow

Learning new ways to do things

Letting corruption crumble on it's own

Not about political power

Just good old creativity and support

That makes Revere home of Revere Beach

The first public beach in the United States

One of many reasons

Why you would come here

Wanting to raise your family

Watching them grow up

In the same city that you love

For all the reasons I mentioned above

DDE I showed my support for my nephew by holding signs and I learned quickly how time consuming and tiring it can be. All his hard work paid off. I no longer live there but to see the city I grew up in and have many fond memories of change for the better is awesome. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a beautiful day.
