Timmy Sullivan is running against incumbent Ken Gordon to become the next State Representative for Bedford, Burlington, and Lexington Precinct 6. He is incredibly passionate about climate justice, strengthening our public schools and colleges, and ensuring a transparent culture of decision making at the Massachusetts State House.
It’s time to elect a proven leader on climate action. Endorsed by the Sierra Club, Timmy has a track record for setting and achieving ambitious goals for climate justice. He played a critical role in pushing the state’s largest public emitter- UMass Amherst- to be powered with 100% renewable energy by 2032–twenty years ahead of schedule. Now, he strives to bring the same kind of leadership to the State House because he knows that such plans are possible to achieve; all we need is transformative political will to drive us forward.
There is enormous potential to eliminate carbon emissions and lower energy costs by transitioning Massachusetts to 100% renewable energy immediately. Imagine: the Burlington mall space and parking lots across the district lined with public solar arrays, zero-hassle residential solar and retrofitting, expanded and fare-free public transit—this is the vision of a community that is no longer dependent on dirty fossil fuels, but clean energy.
We can afford to and we must make this transition happen. We deserve clean air and a future free from the worst of climate change. Most importantly, we need the leadership to make this happen.
This is why it is imperative to vote for Timmy Sullivan in the 21st Middlesex District Democratic Primary.
