SHREWSBURY REPUBLICAN HOPES TO TAKE LIFE EXPERIENCES TO CONGRESS

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, SEPT. 12, 2017....A Shrewsbury Republican kicked off his bid against U.S. Rep. James McGovern last weekend and is pledging to bring a personal approach to issues like immigration and opioid addiction.

Jeffrey Sossa-Paquette, who owns child care center, held his campaign launch in Leominster on Saturday. The father of an adopted child born addicted to heroin and the husband of a Colombian immigrant who entered the U.S. illegally, Sossa-Paquette said his life experiences have shaped his policy views.

"I'm going to come out and tell the truth, and I'm going to show people from experience, not just come out and say 'Well, I'm a politician and I want to do these things,'" Sossa-Paquette said in an interview. "Not only do I want to do these things, this has been my life."
