This past election cycle has been quite the whirlwind and very exhausting on all of us with all of the TV ads, mailers and telephone calls. I am quite happy with two things, first and foremost it’s all over (at least for two more years) and second that Representative James Miceli was re-elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives.
I know this may be a “what did he just say” moment, as Representative Miceli and I had a very well spirited campaign two years ago. However, truth be told and all politics aside, Representative Miceli does do a great job for his constituents. Just recently a good friend of mine (and a very big supporter of my campaign) was going thru some tough times and reached out to Representative Miceli for help. It didn’t matter who my friend was or who he supported in the past, Representative Miceli and his staff looked past all that and did what they could to help. This caused me to pause a moment to understand what kind of a person Representative Miceli really is and all that he has done for our community. Just today (the day of this letter) I called Representative Miceli at home at 7:35 in the morning, (yes he really does answer his phone at home) and personally thanked him for what he did to help my friend and his family. I congratulated Representative Miceli on his re-election and wished him good health and all the best in the future.
To that end, on our journey thru life, sometimes our compass may not point due North and we drift off course and head thru some rough seas, but as long as we remember that old saying, “second star to the right and straight on ‘til morning,” we will all find our way home.
