See the press release announcing my candidacy HERE.
My name is Susannah Whipps Lee. I am a fiscal conservative Republican, running for State Representative of the Second Franklin District of Massachusetts.
I am a seventh generation resident of Athol. Born and raised in the North Quabbin, I feel a deep connection to the area and our residents. Being a successful business owner gives me insight into what is needed to pull the area out of this difficult economic time.
My plan for this region includes working to build an economic climate which will increase the number of quality jobs available to our residents. This district has an intelligent, qualified and able workforce, as well as a great history of industry and manufacturers. We must work to attract industry and enterprise to the 2nd Franklin District.
Increased commerce will enhance greatly our ability to fund public safety departments and our schools.
Included in my website you'll find many pictures showing the scenic beauty of our area. We are so fortunate to have these attributes in our region. My hope is to bring positive attention to this region.
If you agree with my goals please support my efforts!
Second Franklin District: Athol, Belchertown(A), Erving, Gill, New Salem, Orange, Petersham, Phillipston, Templeton, Royalston, Warwick, and Wendell.
