Addressing the packed room, Madaro shared his reasons for running and laid out his vision for East Boston.
“I feel blessed to be born and raised in East Boston, whether it was playing little league baseball or pop warner football, learning how to play drums at Zumix, or getting involved in community clean ups with my mom and her civic group.” Adrian said “My family made sure that I was invested in my community and that I loved East Boston. That’s why I am running for State Representative. I want to be the first person you think of calling when you need help and I want to be your advocate on Beacon Hill.”
Madaro went on to thank his family for their support and State Representative Carlo Basile for his mentorship.
“This commitment to public service and community is in my DNA. I learned it from my family and strengthened it these past four years working for Representative Basile as his Chief of Staff.” Adrian continued, “I’m so grateful for Rep Basile’s mentorship as he’s prepared me to be an effective and passionate advocate for East Boston on day one.”
