Schiavi Receives Endorsement

SchiaviHARWICH – A Republican candidate for the Cape and Islands State Senate seat has received an endorsement from the New England Police Benevolent Association.

Anthony Schiavi, a retired United States Air Force General, previously served as the Town Manager and Police Commissioner for the Town of Ashland.

It’s the second endorsement Schiavi received.

Local 2583 of the Dennis Fire Department endorsed Schiavi in May.

“This year’s election is an opportunity to put a strong, experienced leader on Beacon Hill, advocating for the needs of our first responders,” said Schiavi. “Our citizens, visitors and business owners deserve to feel safe and secure in their communities. Having lived on Cape Cod for the past 24 years, and spending more than three decades in public service, I will continue my pledge to support our public safety officials and all first responders in the state senate, representing everyone on Cape Cod and the Islands.”

The Harwich resident is one of two Republicans seeking the party’s nomination, along with Barnstable Town Councilor Jim Crocker.

County Commissioner Sheila Lyons and business owner Julian Cyr are running for the Democrats.

Current Cape and Islands State Senator Dan Wolf is not seeking re-election.
