Seekonk Student Joins Bailey Campaign
Seekonk's town coordinator for Jeff Bailey's state Senate campaign is a Seekonk High School senior.
David Orleck, a senior at Seekonk High School, has joined Republican Jeff Bailey's campaign for the state Senate seat of the Bristol and Norfolk District, which includes Attleboro and Seekonk.
Orleck will serve as the Seekonk town coordinator, Bailey's campaign announced in a press release issued Wednesday.
"I am proud to have David as a member of our campaign," Bailey said, according to the release. "David understands how important [it is] that we have new leadership at the [state Senate] determined to fight for the implementation of Secure Communities."
Bailey, a pastor at Attleboro's Grace Baptist Church for more than 20 years, has the ambitious goal of unseating Democrat James Timilty, who has been in the Senate since 2004. Bailey officially announced his bid for office last month at an event in Foxborough.
Oreck has lived in Seekonk for nearly his entire life, according to the release.
"In the fall, he plans to attend the University of Massachusetts Amherst to study finance and economics," the release states. "As a freshman, he joined the Seekonk Republican Committee and became involved with local campaigns and initiatives. David is a 2012 All-State Band trumpet player, an amateur historian and his own private chef."
