Dear neighbors and fellow citizens of Brockton,

My name is Craig Pina and I am running for Councilor at Large in our city. I am running because, as a lifelong Brocktonian, I have seen our home go through some good times, as well as some times that were not so good. I am deeply concerned about the future of Brockton and the people who live here. As your Councilor at Large, I will work to make Brockton a better place to live and a great place to do business. By working to strengthen the business community, we will
  • Attract more and better jobs to Brockton
  • Improve the safety of our streets
  • Strengthen our already outstanding school system
  • Improve the quality of senior life
  • Ensure that nobody “falls through the cracks”
All are keys to making Brockton a better place to live and raise a family.
I am looking forward to meeting as many residents as I possibly can this year and truly listening to your concerns and, when elected, work to implement your good ideas to improve Brockton and build a greater sense of community for ALL of our residents.
