Suffolk County Sheriff Backs former Boston City Councilor for State Representative (14th Suffolk)
Suffolk County Sheriff Steve Tompkins today announced his endorsement of Rob Consalvo for the open 14th Suffolk legislative seat. Consalvo, a former Boston City Councilor with a reputation for working with all sides on creative solutions to community challenges, announced his campaign for state representative on June 11th.
“In these difficult times it is important to have compassionate and creative leaders like Sheriff Tompkins guiding our community. I am honored to have his endorsement and I look forward to working with him on solutions that protect our communities and every single person,” Consalvo said. “I am running for State Representative because I believe that government and public service is and always will be about helping and making a difference in the lives of others. It's about making sure that the government works for all of the people, not just some of the people. As a former aide to US Senator Edward M. Kennedy where I learned many of the ideals I still hold true today, an aide at the State House where I wrote legislation and worked on budgets, and as a former Boston City Councilor where I tackled some of the City's most pressing issues, I am uniquely qualified to hit the ground running on day one to get the job done.”
Consalvo served on the Boston City Council from 2002 to 2013, which includes the Hyde Park, Roslindale, Readville, Mattapan and West Roxbury neighborhoods of Boston.
