Campaign was learning experience for Tisei

Richard Tisei, the former state senator and a real estate businessman from Wakefield, nearly defeated incumbent Congressman John Tierney in a hard-fought race that captured national attention.

Republican Tisei was defeated by a 1 percent margin on Nov. 6.

Last month, Tisei said 2012 was a learning experience, and he plans to move forward in 2013.

“I’ll be working to grow my business,” he said. “That’s what I’ll be doing for the foreseeable future in 2013.”

Tisei is broker/owner of Northrup Associates Realtors in Lynnfield, which specializes in residential real estate.

Tisei said he “learned an awful lot” through the course of his campaign.

“I had a great experience over the past year,” he said. “ ... I met a lot of great people. I spent a lot of time in every community on the North Shore. I spent a lot of time touring small businesses. Some of the things that are done by small businesses are remarkable (support to) the local economy.”

“Spending the summer campaigning in the coastal communities was a highlight,” he said.

Tisei said he took some time off after the Nov. 6 election, before refocusing on business.

“I’m getting back to a more normal schedule,” he said. “I intend to stay very active — I will be around in the future.”
