Candidates for Congress, Addivinola & Semon, Meet City Republicans

Frank Addivinola and Jeff Semon, GOP primary candidates seeking to unseat 36-year incumbent Congressman Edward Markey, addressed the Melrose Republican City Committee last month.

Frank Addivinola and Jeff Semon, two candidates facing off in the Republican Primary for the chance to unseat 36-year incumbent Congressman Edward Markey, visited the Melrose Republican City Committee meeting last month at their “Meet the Candidates Night.”

Addivinola and Semon share many similarities including private sector experience—Addivinola as an attorney and investment fund manager and Semon as a financial computer systems analyst. Both support term limits and stressed the importance of getting the national debt under control.

Addivinola, a Malden native, cited his clear thinking, common sense, skills and experience as the qualities that make him the best candidate for the job. He called for reform, transparency, accountability and efficiency in government to help reduce the national debt, and emphasized his focus on creating policies to promote job growth in Massachusetts and across the country.

Semon of Lexington, said he believes we are on a “dawn of a new American ascendancy” called for an end to class warfare. He called for “no more bailouts,” and stated that it was time to “return America to its fundamental principles.” When asked what the attendees should tell others about his campaign, he answered simply, “Ask them, ‘Are you better off than you were 36 years ago?’"
