WelcomeWednesday, May 22, 2013
I know all too well that you don’t get elected to office, let alone win re-election, without the help and support of many. To all of you who have helped and supported me I want to say THANK YOU for your votes and all the assistance you have given my campaigns over the past twelve years.
When I first ran for State Representative,
in 1998, I ran on a platform of fiscal conservatism, pro-business and helping working families. I remain committed to those values and when re-elected this fall,
I will continue to work on your behalf on these and many other important issues.
Today, unlike any other time in my public service career, we are faced with financial challenges and pressures which strike at the very center of all working men and woman. We see voter dissatisfaction with all levels of government and a feeling that their elected officials are not listening to those they took an oath to preserve, protect and serve.
I will continue to listen to you and work on the issues important to the citizens of the district and the Commonwealth. In order for me to continue your work I humbly ask for your help with my re-election campaign.
- Appointed and served on the Ocean’s Management Council.
- Filed Legislation to ban texting while driving.
- Filed Legislation to establish a Narcotics Offender Registry in order to give law enforcement a needed tool to protect our communities.
- Opposed additional taxes on business, products and gasoline
- Worked to maintain funding for Public Safety, Schools, Business Community, Workforce training, our Seniors and those most vulnerable.
- Supported funding to our communities for much needed capital projects such as the

Yarmouth Cultural Center, RT 28 traffic signals in Centerville and other road improvements.
As the poet Robert Frost said so well, "we have miles to go before we sleep" and much work left. I have been honored to serve you and I look forward to being given the opportunity to again work on your behalf.
Thank you for your continued support and friendship,
Rep. Demetrius J. Atsalis

If you have any questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at
