The Patriot Ledger recently included a piece on the 4th Plymouth District race, with some positive mention of the O'Connell campaign:
O’Connell, a Plymouth County reserve deputy sheriff, said he would fight the opioid epidemic from a law-enforcement perspective.
“I’ve seen it up close and seen the repercussions of it,” he said. “I’d address that from a law enforcement perspective, working with the DA and the sheriff’s office to make sure we have the programs to prosecute those dealing drugs. I would also want to continue to provide support to the great nonprofits in Situate and Marshfield that are helping people in recovery.”
O’Connell also said improving coastal resiliency will be an ongoing issue.
“It’s a single issue for some voters, we want to make sure that funding comes through on the state level for homeowners,” he said. “Some feel their area is being neglected and I know resources are being stretched to the limit at DPWs, so as a representative I would just try to be a voice for the residents who live on the coast.”
