Sudbury, MA . . . .Today Ingrid Centurion(R-Sudbury), candidate for State Representative in the 13th Middlesex District, announced her support for keeping the police in schools.
“Being multicultural, I fully understand the anger over the death of George Floyd. However, that doesn’t mean we jeopardize public safety. We hold bad officers accountable while allowing the good ones to continue their heroic work such as protecting our children. As a mother, I support keeping the police in our schools to protect our children,” said Centurion.
Once again, our incumbent Carmine Gentile, has remained silent on this important subject matter. He has refused to say whether or not he supports defunding the police and now he has not said a word about the police being in schools. Centurion believes that the incumbent owes it to the citizens of the district to clearly state his position.
“How far to the extremist left has Gentile gone? Does it now include jeopardizing the safety of our children? Voters have a right to know,” said Centurion. “His silence is speaking volumes. This is why so many people are now joining my campaign. They want a more responsive legislature. They want to stop this leadership from behind. Having put my life on the line for our nation, I can provide the leadership needed to out our state back on track.”
“As the next State Representative, I will be a uniter not a divider,” said Centurion.
