Dear friends and supporters,

While we did not prevail in the Primary Election, we certainly fought the good fight. I am very proud of the campaign we ran and the hard work of my core canvassing team.  I won in my home turf of Nonantum and in Waltham but Rep. Lawn had overwhelming support in Watertown that I was not able to overcome. The final tally was 53% to 47%.

Congratulations to Rep. Lawn on the win.

Here are the results from WCVB.

I am very appreciative of the support and commitment of all of you and I want to assure you that this effort was not in vain. It is important that incumbents get challenged and are held accountable for their votes and are evaluated on their performance. This was a shot over the bow.

We had an uphill battle with the Covid pandemic that forced us to delay the canvass until mid-July.  The inability to participate in fundraisers made it difficult to raise money. Heck, it was a chore just to collect enough signatures just to get on the ballot!  Having to campaign in 3 different towns, and in two of them I was not well known. It was just too much to overcome in too little time.

Thanks again to all.

I will be back!

“Alison Leary will provide the effective advocacy that the constituents of Newton, Waltham and Watertown deserve. As a colleague on the Newton City Council I’ve seen Alison take the lead and tackle many of the difficult issues that have faced our city. She has taken the initiative and brought about change in local policies that involve combating climate change, providing more affordable housing and transportation improvements. In addition, Alison is a hard working public servant who has always made herself available and responsive to the needs of her constituents. Alison Leary is the kind of representative the 10th Middlesex district needs.”

Maria Greenberg, Newton City Council, Ward 1

“Alison Leary is a leader on the Newton City Council.  When I became the Council President I selected her to Chair of the Public Facilities Committee which she has done very well. She is one of the strongest protectors of our environment, docketing and then fighting to successfully pass environmental ordinances.  She understands the issues and needs of the district and will be an excellent addition to the legislature working for all constituents.”
