August 29, 2022 – (SWAMPSCOTT) Tristan Smith, candidate for State Representative in the 8th Essex District today issued the following statement: 


“I am incredibly proud of the campaign we have run. I started off as a candidate with little name  recognition. Today, my team and I have knocked on the doors of more than 10,000 voters throughout Marblehead, Swampscott and Lynn, and I have met with hundreds of residents,  elected officials and former elected officials at the national, state and municipal level, local  housing officials, local chiefs of police, teachers, climate activists and many others. 


“Through those thousands of conversations at doors, on the phone, and at local coffee shops  and events, I am grateful that I have been able to make my case that I am the best candidate to  represent the Eighth Essex District in the House of Representatives. 


“I am proud that I have earned the trust of so many people who have been legislators at many  different levels, and know me and know the job, including U.S. Senator Ed Markey, former  Congressmen Barney Frank and John Tierney, and former State Senator and Lynn Mayor Tom McGee. 


“I am equally honored by the broad-based and diverse support and endorsements I have  earned from local leaders, such as Marblehead Select Board member Jackie Belf-Becker,  Swampscott School Committee Chair Amy O’Connor, Lynn City Councilor at Large and Council  Vice President Buzzy Barton, Swampscott Board of Health member Marianne Speranza  Hartmann, former Chair of the Swampscott Democratic City Committee Ralph Edwards,  Marblehead resident, social worker Alisa Alvarez, and the Swampscott Education Association,  the Massachusetts Housing Coalition, the Massachusetts Retirees Association, and the  National Association of Government Employees, among others.” 


434 Humphrey Street Swampscott, MA 01907
