I am running because Beacon Hill is broken and my district is not being effectively represented.
The voters of Scituate and Marshfield have clearly stated that they want smaller government and lower taxes, yet the incumbent voted to dramatically cut our local aid, weaken education standards, and raise taxes.
The leadership on Beacon Hill is already gearing up for a post-election tax hike, and in our struggling economy, that is exactly the last thing we need to do to create jobs.
I am running because we need someone who can stand up and say no to the out-of-control spending, borrowing, and taxing. We deserve to have a representative who will actually represent the district and not simply fall in line with party leadership as my opponent has done more than 97% of the time.
I am running because Scituate and Marshfield deserve better.
