Two vying for GOP nomination in Tuesday primary

Political newcomer says her youth can be plus

(Continued)

“I’m a nurse first,” she said. But she’s already won enough support, she said, to garner $7,000 in donations.

Her youth is a plus among other young people, she believes, as is her stand on taxes. “We want to be able to take our paychecks home at the end of the week.” On the other hand, she worries that Peabody is “not getting the local aid we should.”

She points to Rep. Joyce Spiliotis, who died in November, as a role model, in some respects, should she win office.

“I’ve heard great things about her,” Cole said. “... I would hope to be even half as good as Joyce Spiliotis at constituent service.”
