By Josh Resnek
Longtime Haitian activist, outspoken resident and community organizer Guerline Alcy has announced she is running for state representative.
She will face Representative Joe McGonagle in a September primary.
Alcy is well known throughout the city.
She came within a handful of votes of obtaining an at-large council seat in the November election.
Alcy is running to give everyone a voice and to bring fresh ideas and positive solutions for working individuals, according to a release from the candidate received by the Leader Herald.
“I have a true vision of how we can represent everyone in making decisions that benefit everyone,” she said.
Alcy describes herself as a tenacious, diligent professional, compassionate about people and service.
Alcy came to the United States from Haiti when she was 11.
She was employed by the city of Everett for 9 years.
She has also worked in the financial services industry for 12 years.
She has nurtured a lifetime interest in politics and has served as a campaign manager while at the same time running for public office in Everett.
“I have been a community organizer, working towards a better, stronger and healthier environment in the city of Everett. I have strong passion to serve my community,” she added.
Alcy is the mother of three sons. She said she enjoys spending time with her husband and family, that she reads, cooks, travels, does art shows and en- joys rehabbing homes.
“It is essential to improve education, economic development, and the quality of life. We need good jobs, thriving small businesses, meaningful youth pro- grams, affordable housing, and the best transportation options. We must identify and implement ways that make the system work for everyone,” she said.
Alcy believes the city needs strong new leadership on Beacon Hill.
“We need results, not just press releases, idle talk or photo ops,” she told the Leader Herald.
“I am proud to run for State Representative because Everett needs a real leader who will take a stand for all of us.”
The democratic primary will take place on Tuesday, September 6.
“I look forward to meeting and listening to you. Call me at 857-326-1128 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
