Now more than ever do we need representation for the middle class. I am running for the legislature to represent the 9th Bristol District which includes Dartmouth, areas of New Bedford,Freetown and Lakeville.
If anyone knows how much the middle class is under attack, it's me. I come from a working class family. I am a licensed union electrician. I decided to run for this seat because I believe I can make the most positive impact on the lives of the people in my district and in the entire Commonwealth.
My main focus is bringing manufacturing back and making Massachusetts the leader of the country in green technology manufacturing and Bio-life science.
For those of you who have traveled through Lowell, you understand the need for manufacturing. Lowell is New Bedford's carbon-copy. The working class built these areas, manufacturing made us strong.
I bring a different perspective than we may be used to on Beacon Hill. There are many representatives with various professions, whether they may be lawyers,doctors or business owners. These representatives bring different ideas, different perspectives. What is missing is the perspective of the man or women who wakes up at 5 AM and doesn't come home until 5PM. Or the mother who stays at home with the kids during the day but has to go work second shift at night to make ends meet and pay the bills.
I am that person. I may be an anomaly, blue collar individuals rarely throw their hat into the political world. I am not a politician, they only think of the next election. I am a public servant.
I want to represent the working families of the 9th Bristol district and impact working families and small businesses across the Commonwealth in a very positive way.
So I am asking BMGers to help out in this campaign Become my facebook fan http://www.facebook.com/pages/Elect-Ray-Medeiros-Jr-for-Massachusetts-State-Representative/265578478903?ref=mf
