(Nice job Lew! I agree with everything in your compact! I’m glad you guys are standing up for what’s right! – promoted by DD4RP)
Good afternoon fellow activists,
As you know, I am working with a group of concerned members of the Republican Caucus in the House of Representatives trying to bring about real change for our caucus, our legislature and our state.
Yesterday, we tried unsuccessfully to bring about such change by challenging the current leadership in the House. We offered ourselves as an alternative to Brad Jones and the team he has assembled to lead the Republicans. Those efforts came close to bringing about change, but unfortunately they fell only two votes short of being successful.
Today is about something different. It’s about taking things in a new and different direction. It’s about rebuilding our party and doing something constructive for the people of Massachusetts.
I’m posting here to make you, as the grassroots activists of our party, the first ones to know about the first step in this initiative.
We are launching a new Web page that is dedicated to taking back Beacon Hill for the people of Massachusetts. We want to take things in a new direction and help to create a legislature we can be proud of, one that actually listens to people and represents them appropriately. And it is specifically designed with you in mind.
The site is www.takebackbeaconhill.com. I hope you will take time later today and in the future to check it out. We will be updating it frequently.
One of the centerpieces of the site is a document we call the “Compact With Massachusetts.” It’s intended to be a promise that we make to you about what we will and will not support as your elected officials. It talks about things like having a government that is fiscally responsible and ethical, one that opposes tax increases and supports state aid for services on the local level.
It is our fervent hope that you will not only read through the Compact but also that you will support it and share it with your friends and colleagues. There is space on the site for you to contact us to endorse our efforts, and we hope you will choose to do so.
Thanks for your interest and for your support of efforts to make our state a better place to live and work through the advancement of the principles we all hold dear.
