This will be my last post on Blue Mass Group. I would like to thank David and Charley for their kind assistance to help me forward my candidacy. I have found that I could not get the help necessary to get the signatures needed to be a candidate for State Senate.
I hereby withdraw myself from this campaign, and I will also inform the Ward 19 Democratic Committee that I no longer wish to be a member of that organization. I will forfeit my delegate seat to the Democratic State Convention also.
If anyone asks for my assistance, it will not be forthcoming. It is now clear to me that no one in the Democratic Party remembers or appreciates the hard work that was done by me on their behalf. I am really disgusted that the people who know me in this forum were not supportive or would not stick up for me. Especially KATE.
I will never seek elective office again, so I have no fear to speak my mind now. Mayor Menino should quit crying about the financial situation in the City of Boston and issue some bonds due to the excellent bond rating we have.
Democrats should stick up for their principles and end the terrible practice of allowing employers and insurers to use someones’ credit rating against them. It is financial discrimination, and it is really targeting the poor and the communities of color in Massachusetts.
I will not bother to contact elected officials regarding issues any longer, as it usually does no good. e.g. Clean Elections (which I worked my tail off for) & Allowing Charitable Donations to be deductible from State taxes.
P.S. And yes Representative Scaccia, the system is broken and it has been for years.
