Letter to the Editor: Support for Naughton

October 31st, 2014

Dear Voters, I have lived in Northborough for 29 years.  In that time I have, off and on, paid attention to local and state political activities. Over those years I have come to know State Representative Harold Naughton as a man of courage and integrity, and to know that he cares deeply about the things [...]

October 31st, 2014

To The Editor: Westborough is fortunate to have two experienced, well-qualified state representatives running for re-election.  We urge you to join us in voting for Carolyn Dykema (precinct 2) and Danielle Gregoire (precincts 1 & 3) on November 4th. Carolyn Dykema is extremely hard-working and thoughtful, always interested in studying problems and listening to constituents [...]

Letter to the Editor: Vote yes on Question 1

October 28th, 2014

To the Editor: As the General election approaches, voters should be aware that the Legislature enacted a law that links gasoline tax increases to inflation. The Legislature will never have to vote on the gasoline tax rate again. It’s tied to inflation and is a never ending tax increase. The current 24-cents-per-gallon state tax will [...]

Letter to Editor: Flyer misrepresents Dykema’s record on veterans issues

October 28th, 2014

To the Editor: As the state election nears, I am writing to take issue with a flyer I received a few weeks ago from a group called Mass. Fiscal Alliance disparaging Rep. Carolyn Dykema’s record with regard to veterans. The flyer struck a nerve because I know Rep. Dykema has been a tireless supporter of [...]

Letter to the editor – vote for Wyatt

October 28th, 2014

Vote for Wyatt for House of Representatives To the Editor: It’s time for change in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. If elected, Brad Wyatt will not be part of the “old guard” who stand in a pack and vote in lock step with the majority.  He will fight for what’s right for Massachusetts citizens, businesses [...]

October 24th, 2014

To the Editor: It is with great pleasure that I write this letter in support of State Representative Carolyn Dykema.  As a member of the Hopkinton School Committee, the Chair of the Hopkinton 300th Anniversary Committee, and a twenty-three year resident of Hopkinton, I have had countless opportunities to work with and observe Carolyn’s dedication to our [...]

Letter to the Editor: vote for Dykema

October 24th, 2014

To the Editor: I am writing in support of Carolyn Dykema’s reelection to the Massachusetts 8th Middlesex House seat.  Carolyn helped our family through a bureaucratic maze in our quest to escape onerous flood insurance premiums imposed due to incorrect FEMA mapping data.  These insurance payments escalated annually and had become a financial hardship for [...]

A vote for Rep. Dykema

October 24th, 2014

To the Editor: Carolyn Dykema is running for re-election as the State Rep. in the 8th Middlesex District. Over the last few months I have received a number of notifications from a political action committee (PAC) filled with lies, accusations and insinuations about Rep. Dykema’s positions. This is a glaring example of how low some people will stoop [...]

Letter to the editor: A vote of confidence for the Baker – Polito ticket.

October 20th, 2014

To the Editor: Following the debates and newspaper articles, the general consensus from many sources see a win-win situation to a vote for the Baker-Polito ticket. I especially like the commentary by Karen and Charlie regarding the time limits on public housing. The approach suggested is very fair to all concerned. It motivates the families [...]

Letter to the editor: Shrewsbury selectmen back Baker and Polito

October 20th, 2014

To the Editor: Voting the Charlie Baker and Karyn Polito ticket for governor and lieutenant governor Tuesday Nov. 4, is the only choice on the ballot to provide Massachusetts the proven, thoughtful leadership needed to create jobs, foster real Beacon Hill bipartisanship, control government spending and protect taxpayers. Massachusetts cities and towns desperately need a [...]
