Candidate for State rep Nick Collins has put on a strong campaign from the start. You can hardly walk the streets of South Boston without seeing a sign bearing his name. Nick is indeed qualified for the position. As an aide to Senator Jack Hart he gained firsthand experience of everyday political life. In addition to experience Nick also has some clout behind him. Nick is endorsed by the Boston Firefighters, The Boston Police Superior Officers and former Boston Mayor turned Vatican Ambassador Ray Flynn.
If you have had the pleasure of meeting Nick, the first thing that strikes you is his friendly manner. When Nick greets you, you get a sense that he is delighted to have the opportunity to meet and spend a few minutes talking with you. In talking with Nick you can feel the depth of care he has for the community and the passion and commitment to working on the issues. Nick is like your next door neighbor or a long time friend, approachable and caring.
Nick is as great at getting out into the community, as was his predecessor Brian Wallace. Nick has taken time out to visit and talk to the local groups and organizations that provide assistance to the community. This is a big win for Nick. It proves he has what it takes to get the job done. The win shows the confidence he has cultivated in the community and will go a long way toward causing doubt in the minds of his fellow candidates. I think it clearly demonstrates this candidate is indeed a winner and has the focus, dedication and determination to win. The primary win is likely a predictor of the outcome of the race.
Nick took the race with, according to the City Of Boston website, showing that he is in for the win. Clearly setting him apart with knowledge, know-how, and clout. The people of the Fourth District have demonstrated their desire to elect someone they feel understands and cares about resolving the issues that affect them and working together towards a brighter future for all its residents. With just a few weeks remaining until the official election, even if Nick relaxes a little, I doubt he would even consider it; it looks like he will be taking the seat as the Fourth Districts State Rep.
