Needham Times – Letters to the Editor – August 15, 2018
Denise Garlick is proven representative
Like Denise we have lived in Needham for about 30 years. We have raised our three
children here and have been active in community activities and town government.
Denise has accomplished so much in her short seven years as our representative. She
has brought in millions of dollars to the district for schools, transportation, roads, safety
and more. She has stood up for our values regarding gun control, immigration,
education and health care and others.
Denise is a full-time representative spending countless hours in the State House and in
the district. As the House Chair of the Joint Committee on Mental Health, Substance
Use and Recovery she has demonstrated that she can build consensus and achieve
results. She is the author of the recently passed opioid legislation. She has been a
perennial speaker at the High School’s Take Back the Night event and has supported
the students in their efforts. We have worked with her directly through the Needham
Coalition for Suicide Prevention where we first witnessed her ability to take on a
complex, painful problem facing our town and facilitate solutions.
Saying what you will do is easy, getting things done is hard. Denise has a proven track
record of listening to our needs and advocating for them on Beacon Hill. As Denise
says, “[she’s] pushing that rock up the hill towards our goals every day.” She has
worked hard over the last seven years. Please vote for Denise to return as our State

As a Needham resident, a mother and an immigration attorney familiar with
the work of Denise Garlick in the state legislature, I am writing to
strongly endorse Denise's re-election as our State Representative.
Denise Garlick fights every day for a fair and just society for every person
in her district.
She believes in equality, and she has taken a stand to fight for children,
immigrants, people suffering from addiction, and under-served populations
while maintaining an open and candid conversation with all of her
Denise has been hard-working, serious, and effective advocate for the best
values of our community. She has earned our vote.

Denise Garlick Has Earned our Support
Dear friends, I cannot think of a more important time in our history to have our voices
heard. A more important time to sustain a candidate who has a proven record of support
for all her constituents, who works industriously to meet their needs through reasonable
and progressive legislation. Following Denise Garlick’s work as our representative on
the Hill convinces me that she has earned my support. Unfailingly, she continues to
foster legislation needed to maintain and improve the quality of our lives. Denise keeps
herself closely connected to the communities she represents, tirelessly works to
improve the lot of those with special needs, and diligently fosters civic education. And
yet, she still has time to listen and extend her helping hand. Denise Garlick has earned
