Anthony E. Schiavi, a longtime Harwich resident, brings exceptional military and governmental experience and skills to his campaign for State Senate - from his service as a decorated U.S. Air Force Brigadier General, to his tenure as a Town Manager and Police Commissioner.
Brigadier General (Ret.) Anthony E. Schiavi retired from the United States Air Force and Massachusetts Air National Guard on September 1, 2013, after having achieved 30 years of commissioned service. At the time of his retirement, he was assigned to the Joint Force Headquarters of the Massachusetts National Guard and in his full-time capacity; he served as the first Executive Director of the Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR) reporting to the Adjutant General.
He was responsible for the inter-agency communication and coordination among nearly 4,000 military and civilian personnel comprising four major military commands and numerous federal, state and county tenants on the 22,000 acre military reservation.
Tony acted as the single focal point for community leaders and other stakeholders on issues related to the MMR. He served as an appointed member to the MMRs Joint Oversight Group, and several base committees and councils. General Schiavi previously served as the Town Manager and Police Commissioner for the Town of Ashland. He serves as a Governor appointee on the Massachusetts Military Asset and Security Strategy Task Force and the Legislative appointee to the Veterans Long Term Care and Housing Commission.
As a State Senator, he will fight for a state government that is fiscally responsible and transparent, and which, will be responsive to its citizens and business. He will advocate for policies that will generate strong, sustainable job creation and growth and housing that the workforce of today and tomorrow can afford. He will work tirelessly to ensure more local aid to Cape Cod communities to support public education, public safety, senior programming and the many other core services local governments are expected to provide their citizens.
Tony holds several prominent appointments and memberships, to include; Board of Directors of the American Red Cross, SE Mass Chapter; Governor’s Military Asset and Security Strategy Task Force; State Commission for Long Term Care and Housing for Veterans; International City Managers Association, Massachusetts Municipal Association & Municipal Managers Association; and the National Guard Association of Massachusetts and of the United States.
