State Sen. Karen Spilka today endorsed Jeffrey Roy to be the next State Representative for Franklin and Medway, declaring that Roy’s public service “has made a significant difference” on behalf of citizens of Franklin, and predicting that he will be a “highly effective advocate” for the residents and businesses in Franklin and Medway.

Senator Spilka endorsed Roy at an event at Coffee Sensations in Medway. In January, she was appointed by Senate President Therese Murray to serve as Assistant Majority Whip in the State Senate. She co-chaired the Commonwealth’s Job Creation Commission, which released its final report last week.
“I have worked closely with Jeff on school and town issues as a State Senator, and watched him lead the school system and make a significant difference. He will be a highly effective advocate and great representative for the citizens of Franklin and Medway,” Spilka said. “Jeff is not someone who is shy and he will speak up on behalf of his constituents. He knows and understands the needs of the district and I look forward to working with him on behalf of our communities.”
“I am deeply honored to have earned Sen. Spilka’s support,” Roy said. “She has been a great leader in the Massachusetts Senate and has delivered results for our communities. Her door was always open to anyone who needed help, and I had the privilege of working with her on a number of town and school issues. It would be an honor and privilege to join her at the State House to work on behalf of the citizens of Franklin and Medway.”
Peter Padula also lent his support and endorsement to the campaign, recognizing the hard and clean race for the Democratic nomination. He noted that Jeff is in “great shape” to represent Franklin and Medway, and that he was here to support Jeff and help him win in November. You can view Padula’s remarks by clicking here.
