McCauley Endorses Perry for Congress
QUINCY, MASS. – Former Quincy Mayor Francis X. McCauley has endorsed Jeff Perry for Congress in the race for the 10th Congressional District.
McCauley, who served four terms as Quincy’s mayor, said Perry possesses the right combination of skills and experience to represent the residents of the 10th district, which stretches from Quincy to the Cape and Islands.
“As a four-term state legislator, Jeff Perry has been a fiscal watchdog on Beacon Hill, fighting for lower taxes and reduced government spending,” McCauley said. “We need Jeff Perry in Washington to fight against the big-government mindset that has sent our national debt skyrocketing in just 18 months under the Obama administration.”
McCauley said Perry’s election could help restore the balance of power, enabling Congress to remove Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
“A vote for Jeff Perry is a vote to wake up Washington and give our government back to the people,” McCauley said. “A vote for his Democratic opponent would be a vote to keep Nancy Pelosi in power and a vote for politics as usual.”
During his 32 years in elective office, McCauley was known for his careful management of Quincy’s finances, turning an $11 million city deficit into a $10 million surplus in just five years. For his efforts to rein in wasteful government spending and reduce taxes, McCauley received the Financial Leadership Award from the National Conference of Mayors.
“We need to put a stop to the trillion-dollar bailouts and failed stimulus spending that threatens to undermine the stability of our entire economy,” McCauley said. “Jeff Perry will help restore fiscal sanity and put a stop to the big-government bailouts and out-of-control stimulus spending. His opponent would simply be another vote Nancy Pelosi could count on to advance her radical left agenda.”
McCauley adds his name to a growing list of Perry endorsements that includes former Gov. Mitt Romney, Sen. Scott Brown, former Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey, Congressman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and more than 40 other elected officials, candidates and Republican town committee chairs.
