Sheila Capone backs Eileen Donoghue in State Senate race

MAY 27, 2010

LOWELL – Lowell resident Sheila Capone-Wulsin, the former executive director of the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus, announced her endorsement on Thursday of Eileen Donoghue in the state senate race for the First Middlesex District. Citing her experience working alongside Donoghue on many issues during the past two decades, Capone-Wulsin said the district will be best served with Donoghue in office, someone who understands the impact state policies and actions have on local communities. “We need someone serving our district who understands how to create jobs and who is not afraid to go against the grain if it’s the right decision,” Capone-Wulsin said. “Eileen, throughout her public and professional career, has done that time and again, regardless of how unpopular her decision was. I have a lot of respect for someone like that, who is not drawn in to the ‘old way’ of getting things done.” Donoghue, who served two terms as mayor of Lowell and 12 years on the city council, helped to shepherd some of the most important economic development projects for the City of Lowell during the last two decades and has shown her independence on many issues that she thought were in the best interest of the city. “Sheila has been a great model for how politics ought to be run and is integral to our team as we begin this campaign,” Donoghue said. “Her commitment to her hometown and the respect she has earned among her colleagues is second to none and I am honored to have her support.”
