TO THE EDITOR:
Two years ago, like many of you, I voted for Scott Brown. I voted for him because he was committed to representing us in Washington as an outsider and as one of us. He was not running to fulfill some family legacy, nor did he have the arrogance to believe the seat belonged to him simply because of his political party affiliation.
People laughed off his chances, but he kept getting into his truck and going from place to place meeting voters. He told us he would be an independent voice, that the seat he was running for was “the peoples’ seat,” and that if we voted for him, we would not be sorry.
Two years later, Scott Brown has lived up to his word. He went to Washington and shook things up. He passed the Stock Act prohibiting members of Congress, their staff and members of the executive branch from trading in securities in which they have insider information.
Scott Brown exercised his independence and did not always vote with his party. In fact, Bloomberg Government found him to be the second most bi-partisan senator.
He kept his promise, and I’m not sorry.
Tuesday, November 6th, I will be voting to send Scott Brown back to Washington to continue his job as an outsider representing us. Please join me in casting your vote for Scott Brown for US Senate.
