Joe Pacheco

for State Senate

A note from Joe

Dear Friends,

As many of you have heard, our longtime Senator, Marc Pacheco, has announced that he will not be seeking re-election this fall.

I first want to thank the Senator for his decades of service to the Commonwealth and the district. I have tremendous respect for Marc’s lifelong commitment to bettering our community, and I am honored to call him a friend.

Since Marc’s announcement, I’ve taken the time to do some soul searching. After discussing with family, friends, colleagues, and supporters alike I am today announcing my candidacy for State Senate in the 3rd Bristol & Plymouth District.

Those who know me best know that when I commit to something, I do everything within my means to see it through to a successful conclusion. I recognize the next 9 months will require hard work, and more listening than talking. I pledge to you a transparent campaign, and open dialogue with you, the voters, from Marion to Raynham, Seekonk to Carver, and everywhere in between. My entire career has been centered on public service and doing all that I can to make our communities better. As your next State Senator, that commitment will NOT change.

Sound fiscal planning to better our economy. Ensuring we meet our obligation to guarantee the best for our schools for our children. Fighting for access to safe, convenient, and adequate health care. This is what you can expect of me as your State Senator. That and straight talk in tough times and consider that to be non-negotiable.

It’s been the honor of my lifetime to serve my hometown for these last 17 years as a selectman. It would be an equally meaningful opportunity to be your next State Senator.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out for a conversation, and if you see me in your neighborhood, please do say hi!

With Gratitude,

        Joseph R. Pacheco
