Dear Falmouth Friends,
Between us, we served Falmouth in the state Legislature for 27 years. We will both always be grateful to the voters of our town for the privilege, and for the opportunity to fight for the interests of this community on Beacon Hill.
With the retirement of Tim Madden, the Barnstable, Dukes and Nantucket state representative seat is now open again, with five Democrats, three from Falmouth, running in the primary election Thursday, September 8.
We have had the opportunity to consider all the candidates, and are writing to urge you to join us in supporting Dylan Fernandes.
Dylan would bring to the job a combination of intelligence, a working family background (he is the first person in his father’s family to graduate from college), political experience working to elect Senator Elizabeth Warren and Attorney General Maura Healey, a commitment to the values we all share, and a personal style that is both engaging and effective. He is also an incredibly hard worker.
We know what it takes to make a difference on Beacon Hill, and Dylan Fernandes has what it takes.
We hope you will join us and the many Falmouth voters who have met Dylan Fernandes and will be voting for him in the Democratic Primary September 8.
RICHARD A. KENDALL
