Posted Jun 01, 2010 @ 10:42 AM

Chelmsford – Waltham City Councillor Diane LeBlanc threw her support behind Chelmsford Selectman Eric Dahlberg in the race for state Senate in the Third Middlesex District.

Citing Dahlberg’s focus on responsiveness and accessibility, his understanding of the issues facing cities and towns, and his commitment to working collaboratively with the elected officials of Waltham, LeBlanc pledged her support during a TV broadcast discussion between the two that aired on Waltham Community Access (WCAC) on Saturday, May 29th.

“I vote for the person, not the party,” said LeBlanc following the WCAC broadcast. “And Eric is the right person for the job. He has been campaigning tirelessly across Waltham to meet residents, business owners, and local officials. He understands our issues. He’ll bring that same collaborative, accessible, input-driven approach to Beacon Hill. I am particularly impressed with his commitment to meet with the Mayor and the members of the City Council at least twice a month if elected.”

LeBlanc, previously registered as a Democrat, has switched her party affiliation to ‘unenrolled’ so she can pull the lever for Dahlberg in the September 14th Republican primary election.

“I’m honored to have Councillor LeBlanc’s support,” said Dahlberg. “One of the most fulfilling things about public service is working across party lines to get things done for the taxpayers. I look forward to working with her, her colleagues on the City Council, the Mayor, and Waltham’s two state representatives as the next State Senator for the Third Middlesex district.”
