Some Good Press For Paul Avella

From The Lowell Sun (6/1/08)

PAUL AVELLA, a Republican candidate to succeed Democrat Geoff Hall as representative from the 2nd Middlesex District, has picked up an endorsement from Valerie Wormell, the recently re-elected chairman of the Westford Board of Selectmen.

Surrounded by supporters at Westford's Apple Blossom Festival on May 19, Wormell cited Avella's record of service, both in the U.S. Air Force and Littleton School Committee.

She listed Avella's priority of greater local aid while improving the district's economy as reasons for her support.

"Paul's New England values of thrift, industry and fortitude exemplify the district's character. I will be supporting Paul Avella for state representative to the 2nd Middlesex District because he shares my values and those of my friends and neighbors. I ask that you join me, building a strong and lasting relationship with our next state representative, Paul Avella," said Wormell.

Avella thanked Wormell for her support and looks to earn the respect of voters in Chelmsford, Littleton and Westford. "Working together with the various boards in different towns, we are going to prosper."

It's Avella's second endorsement by a sitting selectman. He previously was endorsed by Eric Dahlberg of Chelmsford.
