Chuck Raso, President of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craft Workers Local 3, proudly endorsed Wayne and pledged the union’s support for the Matewsky campaign.  He told the large audience of Wayne’s many years of hard work and support of unions, their members, and their families.

Council President John Leo McKinnon introduced Wayne, saying he’s the “go-to guy” who will resolve and promote issues at the State House for the city of Everett.

Dan Hurley, a former Governor’s Council member, spoke of Wayne’s 30-plus years of public service to the citizens of Everett and the many people he helped throughout the years.

Middlesex County Clerk of Courts Michael J. Sullivan was on hand to wish Wayne the best for the upcoming primary.

Also in attendance were State Senator Sal DiDomenico, Alderman Robert Van Campen, Councillor Cheri Landry, and Councillor Leonard Jordan.  A presentation was made by Wayne to his mother, Marion, who was present to greet her friends and support her son’s campaign.
