Allin Frawley


To My Friends and Neighbors, in the 12th Bristol District

To My Friends and Neighbors, in the 12th Bristol District;

My name is Allin Frawley and I am asking for your vote on August 23rd in the Primary for the Democratic Candidate for this District.

I live in Middleboro with my wife Lorraine and daughter Kennedy. I was raised in
Lakeville, and graduated from Apponequet Regional High School. After that I attended Massasoit Community College and Wentworth Institute.

My wife has been a volunteer at the Middleboro High School as a coach for the past 16 years, and runs a small business, Twirl Town, as well.

I am currently serving as a Selectman in Middleboro, and also serve on the Capital Planning Committee, E.M.S. Committee and the Citizens Environmental Health Impact Committee, as well as the Rent Control Board and the Board of Health.

As a member of the rent Control Board, I have worked with and will continue to support the Senior citizens at the Edgeway Mobile Home Park in Middleborough, to bring about the necessary changes so that they may live in peace and enjoy a quality of life all of our seniors deserve.

Anyone who holds public office must be immersed in the local community. Your Representative must be a part of the community – not apart from it. My record of public involvement is a good indication of the level of engagement you can expect from me as your Representative. Our leaders must be attuned to the communities’ ideals, aspirations and goals. Our leaders must be capable, productive, and honest. Our leaders must take the time to learn about our district and they must be credible and competent.

Job Creation should be on the top of everyone’s list in this economy, and I believe the first thing that needs to be done is infrastructure improvement projects, such as the South Coast Rail Project and the Regional Rotary project in Middleboro. Other job creation projects should include, green energy, life sciences and biotechnology. We must encourage more projects in these areas.

Education is one of my leading priorities, and to learn more about the different school systems in the district I have attended School Committee meetings in New Bedford, Middleboro, and Freetown-Lakeville Regional.

No other Candidate can say that.

The Environment is also one of my priorities. Chemical waste sites such as the Parker Street waste site, home to 2 different schools and a low-income housing project, and the Rockland Industries Waste Site, bordering the Purchade Brook Wildlife Management Area and the Taunton River Watershed, must be cleaned up. Period.

No other Candidate has demonstrated the level of commitment to the people of their community or district that I have. No one else has immersed themselves into these issues by attending the meetings or by reaching out and contacting the people in charge, or the people directly affected by these issues.

Help me become the Representative that you deserve! A leader who helps you set and define your vision of the future. A leader who helps you express your communities values to the House, someone who understands that Leadership is a dialogue, not a monologue.

I urge you to cast your vote for Allin Frawley, on August 23rd.

Thank you,

Allin Frawley

Edgeway for Frawley

August 07, 2011 By: admin Category: Uncategorized

I’m thrilled with the endorsement of the Edgeway Homeowners Association. This is a group whose retirement and quality of life have been severely damaged by issues that have dragged on for years – problems that still exist. When I was running for selectman, I stood with them in their picket line. Since becoming selectmen, I’ve worked extremely hard to get the issue moving again after years of local inaction.

These are real people who face real problems – and I am humbled and grateful for their statement of support.

To the Editor:

Allin Frawley has already proven himself as a selectman. When it comes to standing up for people, his hard work and dedication to the forgotten seniors of Edgeway Park has shown what can be done with a 10-year problem that has been ignored, when you are determined to help suffering people.

Allin has demonstrated he can work on many issues at the same time and get results.

He is a concerned, sensitive person who will take seriously the problems of all the people. We know he will work tirelessly to bring employment to the area. There is no one better than Allin to do the job. We are appealing to all to get out and vote on Aug. 23 to elect Allin Frawley as the 12th Bristol District state representative.

To all seniors in manufactured and mobile homes: Join the seniors at Edgeway Park in electing Allin Frawley as our next state representative.

Edgeway Homeowner’s

Huge endorsement from Bruce Atwood

March 30, 2011 By: admin Category: Endorsements

Few people in Middleboro politics are more respected than Bruce Atwood – former selectman, member of the Pierce Trustees, and chairman of the Zoning Board. Allin is honored to receive his endorsement in the March 24th Gazette:

To the citizens of the town of Middleboro:
It gives me great pleasure to endorse Allin Frawley as a future member of the Board of Selectmen. In all my years involved in town government I have never found many candidates I could endorse, but Allin is a candidate I truly believe would make an excellent selectman.
Over the last few years Allin has taken it upon himself to learn the issues and workings of town government. He has regularly attended meetings of the Board of Selectmen, asking questions and bringing up new issues for them to ponder and resolve.
My first introduction to Allin was when we both were members of the Charter Study Committee. He immediately acknowledged he had a lot to learn about town government. Based upon his in-depth involvement, Allin secured a wealth of town government knowledge to build upon.
Since then, Allin has served on a number of committees and attended various meetings for the sole purpose of educating himself on the issues. A few weeks ago he attended a zoning hearing to understand how the system operates. It is very rare to see a candidate for selectman attend such a meeting.
Allin’s involvement and dedication to town government will make him a good representative of the town and a good leader. He will investigate issues and bring them to a conclusion. I urge you to vote for Allin Frawley in the election on April 2nd.
