January is Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Our country is committed to battling human trafficking at home and abroad, and here in Massachusetts, the legislature is doing the same. Human trafficking disproportionately impacts racial and ethnic minorities, women and girls, LGBTQI+ individuals, vulnerable migrants, and other historically marginalized and underserved communities. I have filed three bills to help victims of trafficking, including “An Act improving protections for sexual assault survivors,” which adds trafficking as an offense which qualifies for a protection order and affirms a judge’s ability to order a defendant to stay away from the survivor. “An Act to provide compensation for victims of forced labor and sexual servitude” will increase the victims’ compensation that survivors receive. And “An Act supporting survivors of trafficking and abuse and encouraging increased access to opportunities through expungement and/or sealing of records” will help survivors, who may have criminal records as a result of their victimization, by expanding their opportunity to expunge their records so that they can make a fresh start.

I’m grateful to Jane Doe Inc. and the CORI and Re-Entry Project of the Greater Boston Legal Services for their guidance in filing these bills, and for their work to help survivors. It’s important that we all do our part to stop human trafficking and help the survivors.

Good luck Nancy in your new adventure! We will miss you.

THANK YOU to Nancy Vallee, who is stepping down today after serving as Executive Director of the Wilmington Tewksbury Chamber of Commerce for the past 15 years!

No one has done more in that time to support Wilmington's business community, particularly its small businesses. Nancy organized hundreds of networking events, seminars for business owners, and ribbon cutting ceremonies over her tenure. She was constantly finding ways to spotlight Wilmington companies and, most recently, was the brains behinds the Chamber's wonderful new print & digital 2022-2023 Magazine & Community Guide.

From road races, comedy nights, music bingo and golf tournaments, to sponsoring 'Welcome To Wilmington' receptions with the library, ice sculptures at the Town Tree Lighting, scholarships for graduating seniors, and WCTV's Candidate Nights, the Chamber was always at the heart of the community under Nancy's leadership.

CONGRATS to Nancy on a job well done!

Due to the heavy wet snow, many roads are covered, tree limbs and wires are down, and there are multiple power outages scattered across , including Marston St, Chapman Rd, Whipple Rd, Hillside Rd, Pond St, and Charles Dr. Town of Tewksbury DPW and MassDOT crews are making great progress on the roads and National Grid US is working on power restoration for 373 properties. Our midnight shift officers are responding to calls and assisting with storm-relared issues as well.

Andover St (Route 133) will be closed shortly from River Rd to Hood Rd for an emergency utility pole replacement.

Please remember, street parking is prohibited overnight during the winter. Parked vehicles impact snow removal operations.

Please take it slow and give yourself extra time if you need to be on the road this morning!

We appreciate our TPD officers.

We appreciate our TPD officers.

There’s a lot in policing that doesn’t make the headlines but there are situations that officers face on a daily basis that make a difference. These men and women make me proud to a part of this profession with the way they perform and their commitment to service before self.

Last night, at 2:30am a patrol officer noticed two people sleeping inside an ATM vestibule and not only located one of them as a missing person out of Maine, but was able to provide services and get them a place to stay for the night. Our clinical team will be following up today to see what we can do to help them.

This profession is extraordinary; my appreciation for those that wear a badge and swore an oath to serve others will never fade.

-Chief Ryan Columbus

These were put in place because the road was flooded 6 weeks ago… the road has been dry for 5 weeks….i am all for building and supporting our town buildings but when the DPW asks for 26million dollars and you see this… maybe it’s not the buildings that need fixing.
Welcome James Duffy who topped the ticket for planning board and was already covered by the Carnation along with the Town moderator Dustin Weir. Congrats to the other top vote getters minus Patricia Meuse who was not in attendance tonight. Mark Kratman Selectmen, Kayla Smith School Committee and Melissa Braga Board of Health. Maybe next time "we" can get full coverage of all the candidates not just your own.
I, former elected Tewksbury Board Of Health member George Ferdinand Endorse Melissa Braga for many reasons, the 2 main being she is a Registered Nurse and a current Business owner. She will do great and be an invaluable addition to the BOH and to Town Hall.
Thanks to the Tewksbury Carnation for doing this! Informed voters make informed decisions! Let’s get out the vote on April 2nd!
If you’re interested in learning more about our proposed Massachusetts Information Privacy and Security Act (), check out this helpful write-up in the Tewksbury Carnation, which also provides a link to the full bill text. I’d love to hear your feedback on this important issue!
Tewksbury has 22,000+ voters, but only 200-300 typically attend Town Meeting, where so many important decisions affecting residents are made. Have you never been to Town Meeting? Or maybe it’s been awhile?

Learn the basics of Town Meeting and how this "purest form of democracy" actually works. Graffeo & Wilson will also answer your questions so you will feel more prepared to attend future town meetings, including the Special Town Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, October 5, 2021 at 7pm at Tewksbury Memorial High School.

Yayy!
The Tewksbury School Committee voted tonight, 4-1, to require all Tewksbury students and staff to wear masks for the first 60 days of school. The committee will then revaluate their decision at the end of October. Story from Tewksbury Carnation:
After nearly 20 years of service to the residents and families of Tewksbury, Noelle Boc -- our current Assistant Director & former longtime Children's Librarian -- is moving on to her next adventure. Please take a few minutes out of your busy schedules and drop by the library next Wednesday, August 4, anytime between 4pm to 7pm, to wish Miss Noelle well and personally thank her for a job well done. She will be dearly missed by staff and patrons alike.
