Letter: Support for Tierney in Peabody

To the editor:

My late husband, former Peabody Mayor Peter Torigian, valued hard work and integrity. He recognized John Tierney’s principles, ideals and his dedication to public service. As mayor, my husband always stood by John and threw his grass-roots support behind John’s campaigns. John Tierney and my husband worked as a team to get results for Peabody.

This year, I am proud to stand with John because he has always stood up for us. John has fought hard for seniors to make sure that they can retire with dignity and will continue to protect Medicare and Social Security. In Congress, John has fended off right-wing attacks to privatize these critical programs. He has a record of fighting for middle-class families and doing the right thing for the people in Peabody.

John understands the needs of our community because he has always been accessible and listens to our concerns. John’s uncle Jim served as a city councilor, and John fully understands and supports the city of Peabody. He is a caring person and has never forgotten where he came from. Elections have consequences, and we need to make sure that we re-elect John Tierney who will never stop putting our families first.

John has my full support in this campaign, because he is a man of integrity and honesty. John knows what is important, and we could not have a better advocate on our side. There is a clear choice in this election between supporting Tierney and keeping our community moving forward or sliding backwards with the extreme elements of the Republican Party.

I strongly urge you to join me in voting for John Tierney on Nov. 6!
