JOE MALONE ENDORSES ED O’CONNELL FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE
Former State Treasurer lauds O’Connell as “honest, trustworthy and a man of his word”
MARSHFIELD – Ed O’Connell is pleased to announce that his campaign for State Representative has been endorsed by former State Treasurer -- and Scituate resident -- Joe Malone.
“I have known Ed O’Connell for almost 30 years. He’s honest, trustworthy, and he’s a man of his word,” said Malone. “Ed is also someone who I have always been able to count on. When Ed says he’ll do something, he follows through and he does it. I think that’s an important quality for someone who is elected to public office. As a resident of Scituate, I know Ed will bring the same skills to the job if he’s elected to be our next State Representative. I am pleased to endorse Ed O’Connell for State Representative in the 4th Plymouth District.”
“I have tremendous personal respect for Joe Malone, and I am honored to receive his endorsement,” said O’Connell. “Joe had a distinguished career of public service, representing Massachusetts residents with a record of success, honor, and dignity. He is also a prominent resident of Scituate. I appreciate his vote of confidence. If elected, I look forward to working hard to promote the interests of Marshfield and Scituate residents.”
O’Connell is a candidate for State Representative in the 4th Plymouth District, which includes the entire town of Marshfield and most of Scituate (precincts 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6). He is a resident of Marshfield and has lived there with his wife and two daughters for the past 24 years. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree from Wentworth Institute of Technology and a MBA from Suffolk University’s Sawyer School of Management. He is a long-time employee of the State Treasurer’s Office, and has previously worked in the high-tech industry for the Raytheon Company and General Electric. In addition, for the past eight years, he has been a sworn Reserve Deputy Sheriff for Plymouth County.
