Let’s rally behind Joe Ureneck for 1st Suffolk State Senate

In light of yesterday’s big upset defeat of Nick Collins, I see a good opportunity for us if we can get a lot of those disenfranchised Southie votes into Joe’s column. I just can’t see those southie votes going for Dorcena Fory. My guess is they’ll sit out or potentially vote for Ureneck if we can drum up support for his campaign.

Nobody thought Leah Cole would prevail in Peabody. I don’t see any reason why Joe can’t put the Southie seat in our column.

Here’s a link to his campaign site:

    1) The district is terrible. Scott Brown won what is now 12th Essex by 16, and Baker won it by 4. Brown lost what is now 1st Suffolk (Senate) by 37, and Baker lost it by 50. Yes, 50. It is the second-worst Senate district in the Commonwealth.

    2) Money! Rep. Forry started with $61K and raised $135K before the primary. She spent $99K, and she still has $97K on hand. Joe Ureneck has $125 — not $125K, $125 — raised from two donors, neither of whom lives in the district.

    After the way Mr. Ureneck behaved towards members of the MA Delegation to the RNC (many of whom previously supported him), I’ll need a lot of convincing to get on board.
