To the editor:

As long-time, active member of the local community, I am always inspired to see new people step up and work to better their community. I am especially inspired to see the rise of young people being more active in politics.

When Brendan Roche first walked into a meeting I was running, he graciously stepped up to fill in to help the committee run a caucus vote. Ever since, Roche has continuously stepped up to the challenge and worked to improve his community. He worked behind the scenes to upgrade Mansfield Democratic Town Committee’s social media and website, he wrote and proposed a mission statement and statement of beliefs, and he jumped in and volunteered with other proposals from committee members. He also stepped up in the town by joining the master plan committee and was there for every meeting working on the plan for the future of Mansfield. Roche always steps up to improve the community and he will step up for every resident of the 1st Bristol district at the Statehouse.

That is why I am supporting Roche for state representative and I ask you to vote for him before or on Nov. 3.
