    Dear Representative-Elect Hendricks,


    A lifelong Democrat active in progressive campaigns and causes, I’d like to apply my professional experience in public and media relations, television production, magazine editorial and public affairs to a position on your staff in communications and/or constituent affairs.


    My work as a producer for WBZ-TV, WHDH-TV, and Comcast includes public affairs programming recognized with multiple Emmys. My responsibilities included research, writing, production and editing. I applied this experience to work in public and media relations for institutions such as North Bennet Street School in Boston. This role included events planning, media relations, publications and community outreach. For ten years, I served as Editor-in-Chief of the signature publication for Suffolk University, a tri annual magazine that received dozens of awards from national organizations in education and communications. Currently, I serve as a Boston-based writer and editor for University of California, Santa Barbara. This position includes magazine editorial, e-communications and collateral.


    I’m looking to combine my professional communications skills with a role in state government. I’ve attached a resume. If you’re seeking seasoned, dedicated and versatile members of your new staff, I’d appreciate your consideration.


    Thank you, happy holidays, and congratulations on your new role.


    Sincerely,


    Andy Levinsky

    Hi Chris –

    Glad to have met you again this afternoon at the Seamen’s Bethel — so glad you remembered me!


    Re: the environment, I recommend the website www.drawdown.org : features 80 Solutions to Global Warming from around the globe — convened by Paul Hawken, who decided a few years ago to seek out solutions. My work focuses specifically on spreading the word about the scientific work going on globally

    / Project Drawdown / about how to impact global warming, because my terrific grandchildren became very upset when I mentioned global warming one day: “Grandma, there’s no hope.” I told them I prefer to do what I can as I’m able, and would they help me? “YES!” Aything you can do to help MA go green very appreciated.


    BEST OF LUCK!

    Just here to second Tripp noonan’s notion…the best way to show contintuents your dedication is by rejected PAC funds and special interest money. Not all democrats are created equal. Be a BOLD progressive and you will have a built in support network whose passion is second to none. I look forward to working with you to pass Wolf-Pac’s legislation to overturn citizens united in the MA House. Let’s make history.

    Good afternoon Mr. Hendricks,


    My name is Robin Farrington and I’m the Senior Administrative Coordinator for the Association of Developmental Disabilities Providers (ADDP) here in Framingham. I’m writing in regards to our company’s annual Legislative Calendar project – a project we are actively working on and plan to distribute in late December. If you have not seen it, the calendar features stories from our members (approximately 129 community-based agencies), as well as the photos, names, and birthdates of our state’s legislators.


    We were wondering if someone from your staff could please e-mail us your headshot and birthday information by next Tuesday so we can include you in our 2019 calendar? We want to be sure we include all of our state legislators in our calendar. We understand this is a tight deadline – we will be sending our project to the printer within a week or so.


    We would most appreciate your participation in this annual project. ADDP is committed to enhancing the political, financial, and educational health of its member organizations that serve people with disabilities, including intellectual and developmental disabilities, acquired brain injuries, and autism.


    Please feel free to contact me with any questions.


    Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you,


    Robin Farrington

    Hi Chris,


    Knowing that we’re few weeks before the primary, I hoped to set up a quick call to discuss our digital hypertargeting technology. In the last three years, over 85% of the 2,000+ candidates that have used our tech have won their seats.


    We are the postal service of the internet. If you provide us with a list of physical mailing addresses (voter file), instead of the home receiving a post card they would receive banner ads as they surf the internet. We invented and patented this technology, and we’re the only company in the world that can do this.


    Note that we are a technology, not an agency nor consultants. We work with hundreds of political agencies who act as resellers, many of whom whitelabel our technology.


    I would love to tell you more about our capabilities and see how we can help you win in the primary. What date and times work for you?


    Best Regards,

    Patrick Carleton
