HYANNIS, MA— Over 150 supporters gathered Monday night at Trader Ed’s at the Hyannis Marina to support Barnstable Town Councilor Will Crocker in his bid for State Representative for Barnstable and Yarmouth.
Lt. Governor Karyn Polito told attendees, “Will Crocker is very concerned about resolving the issues affecting the community he grew up in. He recently asked me to attend a meeting of the business community to bring everyone together to discuss the homeless problem and look for thoughtful solutions. That is exactly the kind of person we need. Will Crocker is the right person. He’s someone that Charlie and I need. We know he will work hard and will never let his hometown community down.”
Governor Baker has said about Will Crocker, “I think Will is definitely the best candidate running. He’s got all the experience you’d want. He’s head and shoulders above his competition on the opioid epidemic, on homelessness and on a whole bunch of issues regarding retirees and veterans on the Cape. He’ll be a great addition to the team on Beacon Hill.”
Will Crocker is the first Cape non-incumbent candidate to be endorsed by Governor Baker and Lt. Gov. Polito, due in part to his record on the Barnstable Town Council and his leadership on important issues in the mid-Cape, from growing good jobs to public safety and education.
"There are many serious issues in Barnstable and Yarmouth. As one of Barnstable’s Town Councilors I understand them. Economic development is not just an issue for Kendall Square in Cambridge and the impacts of opiates are evident right here in our towns. Our quality of life and our local economies are inextricably linked and I’m the person to get them right for now and the future!” Crocker announced to the crowd.
Will Crocker lives in Centerville with his wife Judy. Will is a Barnstable High School graduate who spent 30 years in the radio and television industry before trading in his microphone in 2010. For decades he delivered the news on stations including WQRC, Ocean 104.7 and WXTK. He now helps inmates in Bristol County obtain their high school diplomas, giving them a better chance of success after their release. Will is a Trustee of Cape Cod Community College and a native Cape Codder. For more information about Will Crocker, please visit his website at electwillcrocker.com.
