To the Editor:
I am proud to reside in Melrose, where Republicans, Democrats, and many Independent voters - such as myself - reside in harmony. This welcoming culture is a bigger draw than even our charming Main Street or bucolic parks. The upcoming election will prove no test to our neighborliness, but it will have consequences for the health of our town.
Lauded in Charlotte by the Democratic Party Chair as a “Democrat’s Democrat,” Elizabeth Warren does not represent the best of Massachusetts. She’s an extremist for ever-bigger government with ever more regulatory burdens placed on struggling entrepreneurs. Rather than working to eliminate America’s crushing debt by trimming government bureaucracies, she would choose higher taxes for families, and more job-killing rules for business.
Scott Brown’s vision for our future includes keeping taxes low for everyone and less government regulations. He aims to foster for us the freedom to thrive that our founders assured. His fiscal focus, and his respect for individual rights, are what convinced me that he is the better person for the job. Scott Brown supports the bright values that keep the lights on downtown and illuminate our childrens’ future with the promise that they may keep the fruits of their labor.
I hope my neighbors will join me in choosing Scott Brown as our Senator this November 6.
