In addition, Alex also owns a small commercial solar and LED lighting company with his business partner Rick Middleton. Both businesses are located in Abington. As a small business owner, Alex understands the challenges small time entrepreneurs face in this state.
In the early 1990's, Alex was appointed to the Abington Conservation Commission and spent 22 years on that board, 15 years as Chairman.
In 2015, Alex was elected to the Abington Board of Selectmen.
And now, Alex is a candidate for State Representative of the 7th Plymouth District representing Abington, Whitman and East Bridgewater.
On the issues, Abington, Whitman and East Bridgewater will have a staunch advocate representing the issues of the district and will remain focused on the important issues impacting the district on a daily basis. Alex has been an effective problem-solver during his time on the Board of Selectman and has worked hard to resolve public safety issues, has advocated for enhanced services and streamlined government processes, has championed community infrastructure improvements and has never lost sight of delivering quality constituent services with effectively managing to a budget.
As State Representative, Alex will always puts our public schools ahead of privately managed, for-profit charter schools. Alex will fight on behalf of the middle-class and won’t support corporate-friendly legislation such as stripping overtime pay from Sunday workers.
Alex’s commitment to the community is unwavering and he will bring that same passion for improving the communities of Abington, Whitman and East Bridgewater to Beacon Hill. When Alex learned about families who were incurring large medical bills and difficulties going back and forth to the hospitals for treatment, Alex started the HUG Foundation, a non-profit to help out. The HUG Foundation has raised thousands of dollars that are donated directly back into the local community for those families in need.
On Beacon Hill, Alex will:
Continue the fight against addiction, with more early education programs; we need to educate our young students and our young athletes.
Support our working class and will always support organized labor.
Propose legislation for better unemployment and underemployment training.
Always put the people of the 7th Plymouth District first.
Alex looks forward to serving as State Representative of the 7th Plymouth District and asks for your support on Election Day.
