Gabriel Gomez - Candidate for Senate Seat
Visit to Post 5188 - April 20, 2013 5 P.M.
Gabriel Gomez visited Post 5188 this upcoming Saturday. We had the honor of meeting this distinguished Senatorial Candidate.
Gabriel graduated from the US Naval Academy. He was a navy pilot and flew E2-C Hawkeyes and C2-A Greyouds off of aircraft carriers. Gabriel went on to become a platoon commander in the Navy Seals. He left the Navy in 1996 and went on to get his MBA from Harvard. He currently lives in Cohasset and works for an investment banking firm helping client businesses to develop, grow and experience continued success.
Many of the members had the opportunity of meeting with Gabriel. He also visited a local fund raiser that was being hosted at the VFW at that time.
A number of people were attending the, "2013 Run-Walk To Home Base", fundraiser.
Gabriel took some time out of his schedule to meet with the people in attendance at this local fund raiser.
The special election will be on April 30th, this is for the senate seat vacated by John Kerry's move to the Secretary of State. The polling places in Walpole have been reassigned for this election, you should have received a notice from the Walpole Election Commission.
Gabriel has a great educational, business and military background. He has a record in stark contrast to Representative Markey and Lynch who are the other candidates for this post.
Join us in welcoming Gabriel Gomez to Walpole and asking him about issues of interest to you.
