Released: Monday, September 22, 2008 BURLINGTON, VT, our nations largest progressive political action community, has endorsed Jason Lewis campaign for Massachusetts State Representative, 31st Middlesex District. Jason Lewis is a dynamic thinker with the skills and plan to get the job done for his constituents, said Jim Dean, Chair of DFA. Jason Lewis brings a lifetime of experience to the table that is needed in the House of Representatives. Jason Lewis earned an economics degree from Harvard College. He worked for a global consulting company before earning his MBA degree from Harvard Business School. From there, Jason launched a successful career helping build local technology companies. Jason and his wife Susan settled in Winchester in 1998, where they are raising their two daughters, Sophie, age 9, and Jessie, age 5, who are enrolled in public school. Susan is a producer for WGBH and serves on the Boards of the Winchester Multicultural Network and League of Women Voters. Democracy for America is a key endorsement in this race, bringing donations from progressives and providing volunteers to participate in door-to-door, grassroots outreach. DFA has helped elect over 550 progressives to office from Governor Deval Patrick in Massachusetts to Rep. Donna Edwards in Marylands 4th Congressional District. "I am thrilled and honored to receive Democracy for America's endorsement because they have consistently fought for fiscal responsibility in government and they share Winchester and Stoneham's values, said Jason Lewis. DFA has done fantastic work getting citizens to check back into their government and participate fully in our civic life. Our campaign has always focused on that type of grassroots effort. Jason Lewis wont just talk about education and health care reform; hell get it done. Hell be a fighter for working families to make sure educational opportunities and access to quality health care is there for everyone, said Arshad Hasan, Executive Director of DFA. Jason Lewis knows there is an important role for state government to play in supporting local communities and he has the wisdom and vision to make it happen. ###
