Your Neighbor.

Your Rep.

I grew up here. I owe this community so much.

This district is my home, I’m a proud graduate of the Fairhaven school system and have served as Town Moderator and on School Committee. I’m deeply motivated to represent our values in Boston.

I am a leader. I Will get things done.

Whether it’s negotiating with unions or leading the acquisition of a private company - I know how to bring people together to achieve our goals. Strong leadership yields results.

There is work to do. I will fight for us.

I will fight to control the costs that impact the lives of our families, seniors, and young people every day— particularly the costs of healthcare, housing, and childcare.

“The 10th Bristol District is made up of hard working people, who care about each other and want to make things better for everyone. I grew up here, raised my family here and I believe in us. I ask the voters of our district for their support in this election to be their voice in Boston. If elected I will put my experience to work for the people of Acushnet, Fairhaven, Marion, Mattapoisett, New Bedford and Rochester on day one, fighting for affordable healthcare and housing and for an economy that works for everyone,” said Sylvia.

Sylvia continued, “Our families, seniors, veterans, and small businesses are the backbone of our community. I will fight for our fair share of state aid for schools, public safety, our seniors and veterans, for pathways to grow our small businesses and support our fishing industry, and for continued investment in the South Coast’s transportation system. We can do all this while creating more jobs and protecting our climate and the environment. That is the promise of the amazing place we all love and my commitment to you”
