BDTC Hosting Meet & Greet Fundraiser for Boxford’s own Christina Eckert

The BDTC is delighted to host a Meet & Greet Fundraiser for Boxford’s own Christina Eckert.  The event will take place on Sunday, April 22, 2018 from 1-3pm at Lincoln Hall, Boxford.  Christina is running as the Democratic candidate for State Representative of the 2nd Essex.  The district includes Boxford precincts 2 & 3, Georgetown, Groveland, Haverhill W4-P3 and W 7-P3, Merrimac, Newbury and West Newbury.  Everyone is welcome to attend.  Light refreshments will be served.  This is a family friendly event.

 

Christina Eckert’s interest in public service is inspired by her family and her community.  The mother of three boys, she served as President of the Boxford PTO, and co-founder of the Masconomet Education Foundation, where she helped raise $300,000 for Masconomet’s new STEAM Lab.  For the past 10 years, Christina has also supervised Boxford’s Summer Park Program, a healthy summer activity that reaches over 450 local children. In 2009, Christina joined the staff of Community Giving Tree, a local non-profit providing clothing and cribs to children in need throughout Essex County and the Merrimack Valley.  She has helped expand the organization from serving several hundred children per year, to serving 10,000 per year.

 

Christina Eckert is the kind of representative we need in the State House.  She is passionate about children’s needs, especially their health, education and safety.  She will represent our communities’ values including clean environment, affordable housing and fair pay.  When she sees a need in the community she is eager to fill it.  Her motto is “Let’s Get Things Done.”  This event is an excellent opportunity to meet and speak directly with Christina. We hope to see you there!

On Wednesday, March 21, 2018, the Boxford DTC along with the Middleton and Topsfield DTCs hosted Candidates’ Night for Delegates, Alternates and Activists.  The event, held at the Boxford Community Center, featured 14 Massachusetts Democratic campaigns.

An estimated 100 attendees got to talk one-on-one with the candidates and their staffs.  The candidates heard directly from delegates, alternates and activists from all over the North Shore and beyond.

The event featured 5-minute Spotlight talks by  candidates Eileen Duff, Christina Eckert, Bill Galvin, Jay Gonzalez, Bob Massie, Tram Nguyen, Quentin Palfrey, Jimmy Tingle, Setti Warren and Josh Zakim.  Representatives from the Alison Gustavson, Maura Healey, Seth Moulton, and Elizabeth Warren campaigns spoke on their behalf.  The event closed at 9pm with high praise from both participants and candidates energized by the opportunity for the direct exchange of ideas.

Thank you to all of the candidates and their staffs for demonstrating that grassroots politics still exists.  Thank you to all of the delegates, alternates and activists who confirmed their deep concerns for our democracy through their participation.
