“Marc Silvestri is a champion for the people of Revere. He works tirelessly, is there when the community needs him, and is guided by doing what is right. I could not be more proud to endorse my friend, Revere’s Councillor Marc Silvestri, on his re-election bid for Councillor At-Large,” said Senator Lydia Edwards.
Councillor Silvestri noted: “It has been a pleasure to collaborate with elected officials like Senator Edwards, who shares a vision for moving Revere forward.” Councillor Silvestri is humbled and would like to extend his gratitude to Senator Edwards for her endorsement.
