I Support Mayor Carlo DeMaria

To the Editor:

The election on Nov. 2, is critical for Everett, a progressive and diverse city that continues to thrive under the leadership of Mayor Carlo DeMaria. The Mayor knows this city, has led this city; he brings results to this city. Look around us. The enhancements to our resources, industry, transportation and real estate are undeniable. These things come about by quarterbacking, not Monday morning quarterbacking. 

In uncertain times, I want an experienced leader, one that is both tested and prepared. We can’t afford to be fumbling around in the dark without a flashlight. Carlo DeMaria, four more  years.

We’re Just Getting Started

To the Editor:

Being a City Councilor has taught me that nothing is accomplished alone and it takes teamwork to get the job done. Since I was first elected, I have worked tirelessly to build the relationships it takes to be an effective public servant. I have worked even harder to earn your trust and build your confidence by ensuring your needs continue to be met by City Hall in an efficient manner and that your voice continues to be heard. I’m still as excited to do this job as I was on the day I was first elected.

In Everett, people expect one thing from their elected officials; results. As your city councilor, I have ensured that your tax dollars continue to be spent wisely on public safety resources, the education of our students, infrastructure improvements and the beautification of our city. During the COVID-19 Pandemic, I worked closely with and supported the DeMaria Administration’s efforts to distribute masks, food, financial assistance, testing and vaccines to residents that were in need.  

As our City emerges from the COVID-19 Pandemic, the future is bright. We are in a position that other cities can only envy, as we have the means to transform formerly blighted and contaminated industrial sites into major new employers for our residents. For the first time in generations, we have access to waterfront parks and open spaces that give the city’s children more room to play and grow up healthy. This will all continue to happen with private investment in our community and not your local tax dollars.

Everett’s best years are undoubtedly ahead of us. Look around and you will see positive change everywhere. Confidence in our community is high. People believe in Everett. We must work together to make sure that we maximize all of this positive growth while protecting and improving our quality of life. The decisions we make today will shape our city for generations to come and we must work closely together to seize every opportunity for positive action.

While we are an exceptional city, we face some of the same problems that every major city across the country faces, like making sure that our residents can afford to live here and that our families struggling with the health problem of addiction can access the resources and support they need. We must continue to work together on these challenges that impact so many of our residents, while recognizing what a privilege it is to perhaps be able to truly help with the issues that touch people’s lives.

Our work in city government is not about any one of us, it’s about ALL of us and the community we live in. By working as a team, we have positively impacted the lives of the people of Everett.  Serving on the Everett City Council has been a tremendous honor and I look forward to continuing serving the residents of Ward Three. On Tuesday, November 2nd, I humbly ask for your vote so I can continue to serve the City I love.

Thank you

Anthony DiPierro

Ward 3 Councilor
