Christina's campaign is working hard and making news - check it out below:
Christina is one of 46 women elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives on November 6, 2018.
We asked Christina what the catalyst of her decision to run for State Representative was. Her response: "Everyone deserves opportunity – the opportunity to get a quality public education regardless of zip code; to work a good job and earn a living wage; to have easy, affordable access to healthcare; and to have a safe and stable place to call home. Opportunities exist, but there is very rarely equity in access to those opportunities."

With the swearing in of new members last week, the Massachusetts legislature, not unlike the U.S. Congress, is receiving an infusion of brand-new state representatives who already are pushing an aggressive agenda focused on addressing climate change and transitioning to 100 percent renewable electricity by 2050.

Minicucci is running to fill the Essex 14th House District seat being vacated by state Senate candidate Diana DiZoglio, against Republican Ryan Losco, also of North Andover. And as she knocks on as many doors as humanly possible in North Andover, Methuen, Lawrence and Haverhill, she hopes her decades of experience in managing big projects and volunteering in her community will get her there.

It can be tough to have faith in the political process these days, especially as we observe the dysfunction at almost every level of government. That is why I strive to support candidates with a strong work ethic, a demonstrable passion for public service, and the temperament required to bridge the ever-growing divide at both ends of the political spectrum. The Merrimack Valley has two candidates that fit this mold: Diana DiZoglio and Christina Minicucci.

I have watched many politicians over the years from both political persuasions and there are many factors that go into supporting a candidate. The first quality that I look for is content of their character. The second I watch is their commitment and responsiveness to their constituents. The third I quality I look for is their stand on issues and their reasoning behind them. I watch to see if they listen as well as speak. I was always taught that you have two ears and one mouth for a reason.

“Christina lives the values that we want in our elected officials,” Rivera said in a statement. “She’s standing up for students, she’s standing up for women, she’s helping her community develop a clear direction and plan – and she does it all without fanfare. She’s a work-horse, and we need more people like her in government.”

I’m not much of a political person, and I don’t consider myself a partisan. If I’m political, it’s to the extent that I want to see my community be successful. I’m jaded by talk, but excited by action. That’s why I like Christina Minicucci.

I can’t say that Christina Minicucci has been a lifelong friend, or that she and I have worked on many projects together. How I’ve come to know her is as a candidate, a woman who is working tirelessly to represent the Merrimack Valley as our next state representative.

It can be exciting to hear a candidate speak about issues and values that are important to you. But it’s brought to a whole different level when a candidate steps forward who has truly done the work that matters to you and your family. That is why I am excited to support Christina Minicucci for State Representative.

Before a crowd of over 200 people, Christina Minicucci kicked off her campaign for State Representative, declaring she will fight for all four communities that make up the 14th Essex House District seat.
“I often say the word ’community,” said Minicucci. “For some people community means their town, while others may think about their neighborhood. For me, my sense of community has never stopped at a town’s borders. I think of community as a lifetime of experiences that include gardening on weekends at my great-grandparent’s house on Knox Street in Lawrence; getting ice cream with my cousins at Methuen’s Findeisen’s; years of my youth at Port Gymnastics perfecting my back handspring in Haverhill; and the countless hours I’ve spent volunteering in the North Andover Public Schools. As our next State Representative, I have the experience and ability to be a dynamic voice for the whole district.”

Frankly, I was surprised, but I also see an amazing opportunity to use this role as a way to continue giving back to our Merrimack Valley communities.”
