Former Republican State Party Chairman Says Lamb Best Chance to Defeat Congressman McGovernment

Holliston, MA …Today, July 26, 2010, Marty Lamb, Republican candidate for Congress in Massachusetts Third District, proudly announced that former Republican State Party Chairman Jim Rappaport has endorsed his candidacy.

“We need more business leaders serving in Congress.  That’s why I am supporting Marty Lamb.  He is the only candidate, Republican or Democrat, running who has signed the front of a paycheck and created jobs.  Marty knows first-hand the burdens the federal government places on small businesses and how mandates are job killers,” said Rappaport.

For over two decades Rappaport has been active in GOP politics.  He served at the Republican Party Chairman for 4 1/2 years.  Rappaport has run statewide twice and served on numerous steering committees.  He is also on the Board of Trustees for Dana Faber and the Board of Trustees for the Rappaport Family Foundation.

“I am honored to have Jim’s support.  Once again we are showing great momentum in this race,” said Lamb.

Lamb’s campaign has a tremendous lead with friends on Facebook and last week he won an online poll for Massachusetts Republicans.

“Marty has also earned my support due to the comprehensive plans he has developed for dealing with illegal immigration and cutting government spending.  He is the only candidate who has done his due diligence,” added Rappaport.

The Lamb Chop Plan on spending includes the following:

Instituting a balanced budget amendment

Passing a Line Item Veto

Limiting government spending to rate of inflation (TABOR)

Hiring freeze for all non-essential employees

Paying off the national debt

Moratorium on new entitlements

Establishing a Sunset Committee

Ending off-budget expenditures

Prohibiting bailouts

Taking back unspent TARP funds

“As a small business owner, I never sign a contract before knowing what is in it.  But yet Congress passed the national health care mandate without fully understand its costs or impact on our economy.  That’s wrong,” said Lamb.  “At a minimum taxpayer will have to fund $1 trillion to pay for Obamacare.  Where is the money gong to come from?  Taxpayers?  China?”

Mr. Lamb graduated from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University in 1985 and received his Bachelor of Arts from Hampshire College in 1982. He has an extensive background in real estate law, formerly with Adelson, Golden & Loria, P.C., Edward A. Sokoloff & Associates, and Lamb & Shaffer, P.C. and is currently with Lamb and Browne, P.C. He is a member of the Real Estate Bar Association of Massachusetts. An active participant in community affairs, Mr. Lamb sits on the Board of Directors of New England Region of United Synagogue and is a past president of Temple Beth Torah in Holliston. He has also served on the Holliston Elementary School Council and the Campaign for Holliston Schools. He resides in Holliston with Peri, his wife of 20 years, and his two teenage daughters Elissa and Simma.
