We must provide proper public safety and maintain peace in our community.One of our Cities gems is America’s 1st Public Beach. Enjoying our city’s abundant coastal treasures is a big part why many of us moved here and thousands come to visit. It is our duty as a community, we must provide the framework in which our citizens and neighborhoods can flourish.
Many residents agree for immediate smart commercial development, must slow down residential growth to determine a cause of action. Many are asking why we have one of the state’s highest automobile insurance rates and non- discounted tunnel and/or tobin fee’s. Revere High School has been awarded one of the Best Urban Schools. Sadly, we have overcrowded and under built our schools. Our war on drugs is like nothing in our past,our community is as strong as its weakest link. Many friends lost were Wasted Talent. We as a community must provide opportunity and options, being the best you can be- is drug free.
The strength of Revere are the people who inhabit Revere. Remember in November, Vote Todd Braid
