From day one, I’ve made clear that my campaign was to work towards doing what is right for the towns of Abington, Whitman & East Bridgewater, as well as all citizens of the Commonwealth. To know that the Speaker of the House wants to protect one of his guaranteed votes indicates to me that my campaign has exposed Beacon Hill for what it really is… A super-majority run by career politicians who don’t want what’s best for Massachusetts, rather what will keep them in power.
From the Boston Globe (http://bit.ly/90sBJf):
“Many Democratic incumbents, including Senator Susan Fargo of Lincoln and Representative Allen McCarthy of East Bridgewater, who are locked in tough battles with conservative challengers, have been sounding traditionally Republican themes such as lower taxes and spending cuts.
McCarthy is facing Geoff Diehl, a Whitman Finance Committee member and sign company account executive. The candidates have battled over taxes and immigration. McCarthy, who acknowledges that he is in a tough battle, has been getting fund-raising and other help from House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo, according to members of DeLeo’s leadership team.”
Please help me send me to the State House so I can work to restore the trust we need in Massachusetts leadership.
