My opponent, Michael Marchese, wants to pretend he is now the poster child for our children’s education in Everett. But here are the facts: (1) My opponent fought against the re-opening of the Webster School because it caused too much of a traffic inconvenience for him. (2) My opponent opposed Pre-K programs, because he believes too many newcomer families come to Everett to take advantage of this program. (3) My opponent doesn’t understand that education is the roadmap out of poverty and multiple studies have shown that for every $1 spent on early education, society saves $20 in costs such as under employment, under insured, homelessness and incarceration. (4) My opponent has never advocated for additional school funding, including the Student Opportunity Act. (5) My opponent has been a city official for nearly 3 decades and has never attended a school concert, play, STEM program presentation, TEASA meeting, graduation ceremony, and the list goes on. (6) My opponent even failed to keep his promise to the EHS Marching Band by failing to show up for a fundraiser he was supposed to cohost for their Pearl Harbor trip last year.
I trust that you, the voters of Everett will see through his attempts to pull the wool over your eyes. My opponent talks a big game, but his actions prove where his intentions lie.
