March 1st, voters across the Commonwealth will participate in the Presidential Primary selecting the best candidate to represent their party in the 2016 election. The ballot will also ask party voters to choose their representative to the State Committees and local party leaders. State and local representatives play an important role in forming the party’s platform, recruiting and supporting party candidates and challenging the opposition’s viewpoint.
The Westford Republican Town Committee unanimously endorses Georjann McGaha and Dennis Galvin for State Committee First Middlesex Senatorial District representatives. The First Middlesex Senatorial District includes Lowell, Tyngsborough, Westford, Groton, Pepperell and Dunstable. One man and one woman are elected for a four-year term.
McGaha and Galvin are strongly supported because of their knowledge and experience in the political process and fidelity to Republican principles. Both are life-long Republicans and long-time members of the Westford Republican Town Committee. As active members of the Republican Party, McGaha and Galvin have served as delegates to the Republican National Convention representing Massachusetts.
McGaha and Galvin are highly qualified leaders. McGaha has been the president of Middlesex Republican Women and MA Republican Assemblies 3rd Congressional District. Organizing volunteers, McGaha spearheaded successful signature collection drives to oppose the gas tax and Common Core. Galvin has served on the Westford Planning Board and twice run for State Representative. Galvin’s position papers on 2nd Amendment Rights and recreational marijuana have spurred the community to action.
Registered Republicans and unenrolled voters may select a Republican ballot in the primary. The Westford Republican Town Committee urges voters to participate in the March 1st election and vote for McGaha and Galvin.
