One of the most effective ways to help Cindy is to reach out to your friends who live in Arlington, Billerica, Burlington, Lexington and Woburn. Simply share why you want Cindy to be your State Senator, and remind them to vote.

Personal networks are a powerful source of influence for decision making, especially in special elections when many voters don’t have a lot of information about the candidates. Your friends want to know why you are supporting Cindy, and we’re making it easy to tell them:

Dear friends,

On Tuesday, July 25th, our District will hold a general election to choose our next state Senator. I’ll be voting for Cindy Friedman, our Democratic nominee, and I hope that you will, too.

Cindy is smart, progressive, and passionate about helping people. After nine years as the late Senator Donnelly’s chief of staff and political partner, Cindy knows the entire 4th Middlesex District and its concerns. She is a fierce voice for the less powerful, and she will fight for quality, affordable healthcare, workers’ rights, and criminal justice reform. As a former teacher and parent, she understands the importance of education and equal opportunities for all. She shares our values and can make a real difference.

We need Cindy’s voice and experience on Beacon Hill to make sure we keep – and expand upon – the progress we’ve made here in Massachusetts no matter what happens in Washington. And we need your vote on Tuesday, July 25th to make sure that happens. We can’t take anything for granted!

Please remember to vote on July 25th. If you will be unable to get to the polls that day, you can get an absentee ballot from your municipal clerk’s office. If you would like more information about Cindy or the election, please go to
