NEWNC Candidate: Marie Simboli, #2 on the Ballot
Let me introduce myself my name is Marie Simboli I have served on the NEWNC for six years and would like to serve two more years. Of course, with your VOTE I will be able to do that.
I have been a resident of the North End my entire life, born and brought up here. As a retired State employee I have worked at the Suffolk Superior Civil Trial Court for 39 years.
I am a member of St. Lucy Society as Secretary; the 208 Sons of Italy as the recording secretary and President of the Paul Revere Association. I’m also a trustee for many other charitable funds.
I am involved in the Sorrentino Fundraiser that I work on every October for the last seven years in order to raise money for the children and adults that need care at the Dana Faber Hospital for Cancer. I have been able to contribute to this fundraiser with the support of the residents, business people and my friends.
I try to attend as many meetings and events in the North End as I can to stay involved as much as possible.
I would appreciate YOUR VOTE on May 17thin order to continue to do what is right for the North End.
