“There is a job available every two years for the position of Ward One City Councilor and I want the job,” said Debbie Plunkett. She has been knocking on doors in Ward One asking neighbors for their support and she will continue to do so in the months to come. Plunkett kicked off her campaign Wednesday, April 10th at the Knights of Columbus and spoke to a standing room only gathering. Music was provided by Lynn’s Dirty Floorboards, which was no surprise as Debbie’s son, John, is the drummer.
Debbie grew up in Lynn, attended Connery, Breed, Classical High School and is a graduate of Marian Court College. She worked at GE Riverworks for 10 years before starting her family. “I was an at home mom raising my two boys. I’ve been a Cub Scout Leader, Yearbook Coordinator, Recess Monitor, Room Mother, you name it, I’ve done it! I truly enjoy giving back to the community and I look forward to giving my time and attention to the residents of Ward One. I have the time, energy and enthusiasm and being your Ward One Councilor will be my full time job, said Plunkett.
My first priority will be to listen to and address the concerns of Ward One residents, by answering calls, holding neighborhood meetings, and openly communicating with Ward One families. I will cooperatively work with fellow councilors and city leaders to represent the residents of Ward One. “I will be a strong voice for Ward One,” said Plunkett.
I take great pride in the city where I was born, raised and continue to make my home. There are many things to be proud of in Lynn, including Gannon Golf Course, Lynn Woods, Lynn Raw Arts, Union Hospital, Arts After Dark, just to name a few.
My message is a simple one. The position of Ward One Councilor becomes available every 2 years. I want the job. I love the city I grew up in and I want to take an active role in Lynn’s future. As a mom, my boys will tell you, there are two very simple rules in our home. “Treat others as you want to be treated and if you want something then work hard and earn it. I will work very hard to earn the votes of Ward one residents and I look forward to being your next Ward One City Councilor, said Plunkett.
