Current Littleton Selectmen Joseph Knox and Chuck DeCoste, and former Littleton Selectman Paul Avella join the growing list of MA3 municipal and community leaders supporting Rick Green.
Knox, DeCoste, and Avella said that Green is an entrepreneurial leader who understands how to bring jobs to the Third District. They emphasized that Green will improve the district's business environment, encouraging continued economic growth.
“Serving in local government has taught us that economic development is critical to maintaining the vibrancy of our communities. As a practical, real-world business leader who built a first-class company, Rick Green understands how to attract businesses to our towns, create jobs, and make the Third District an economic powerhouse. His focus on lower taxes and fiscally responsible government will make our region a better place to live, work, and raise a family. He will make an outstanding representative for our district, and we are proud to endorse him for Congress.”
“Our district has enormous potential, and I look forward to working with elected officials at all levels of government to realize it. Together, we will empower economic growth and opportunity, and improve quality of life for everyone in the district” said Green. “I am grateful to Selectmen Knox and DeCoste and former Selectman Avella for their endorsement and support of my campaign.”
