Gerly Adrien, candidate for State Representative in the upcoming democratic primary, is more than thrilled to invite everyone to her 29th Birthday and Campaign Kickoff Celebration. The event will be held on Saturday, July 28th, from 5:30pm -7:30pm at Village Bar and Grille, located at 38 Norman St, Everett, MA 02149. All is invited, free to attend.
As a commitment to community service every year, Adrien will announce her commitment for this year at the event. This year’s theme will be Youth First Focus. “Each time, I walk around in Everett, Everett youth are excited to see my face on the yard sign. They know that it is possible to run for of ce and reach for the stars. That’s what this race is about. It’s about our community, helping each other. Unity first. My whole life has been dedicated to service and hard work,” Adrien stated.
In response to some of the negative comments about where Adrien has been for the 2 years since the election, she will state how she has been working hard in the cancer / sickle cell community and attending MBA business school.
Adrien has been able to help support clinicians and researchers to receive up to $750,000 in funding as well as managing a budget of $4.5 million for the department. It saddens Adrien to know that her opponent is spreading rumors about her without actually asking her what she has been doing.
Said Pressley: “I walk with pride and integrity. I started a new role in understanding the healthcare space, where I work at Boston Medical Center for the past year and half. I am super proud of what I have been able to accomplish there so far. I had to work really hard to get into Boston University Questrom School of Business, which is rated top 35.
Let’s talk about working full-time, where I manage and train staff, attending classes from 6-9pm during the weekdays and on weekend’s from 9am-5pm, in addition to numerous hours of team projects. Also, during my first semester, I participated in a MBA case competition, traveling to Maryland, where my team (I was the captain), where we won first place $5,000 as the prize and job opportunities for government consulting.
I can, also, talk about how I helped provide resume coaching to youth and policy advocacy to organizations. Last, I can talk about how I won public speaking for strategy in my second semester. ”
In 2016, Gerly Adrien ran for State Representative for the 28th Middlesex District as

The democratic primary election date is Tuesday, September 4, 2018.
