Mary Beth Pirolozzi's 2008 campaign literature read, in part:
It is an honor and privilege to serve you as Councilwoman of Cumberland. I love this community and I very much want to be an active part of the next chapter of the city’s growth and development. I have lived in the city for over 33 years and I want to have a safe community for our families and economic opportunities for our children and grandchildren. As a head of household, I have faced challenges and tough decisions. It is these life experiences, your formal education and the values of your family and your environment that guide you and give you direction. The future is bright for Cumberland, and I want to be an integral part of the team, along with you, the citizens, that keeps making good things happen.
