I wasn’t planning on getting very involved in Markey campaign because I was feeling pretty confident (sic) about his election and because I’m involved in city elections in Boston. Still, I agreed to do a canvass on Saturday and was taken aback not only at the number of people supporting Lynch but at the clear dedication they felt for him. That persuaded me to do whatever I could for these next couple weeks to help elect him.
The summit was great: lots of people, high energy, very organized training breakouts and good snacks.
And, I read a Globe letter to the editor that brought out a fact I hadn’t heard before and it sealed the deal for me. It said:
“According to the Library of Congress website, Stephen Lynch sponsored 17 bills in the 111th Congress, while Edward Markey introduced 46. In the 112th, Lynch sponsored 6 bills, but Markey sponsored 84. In the current Congress, the pattern continues — Lynch proposing 7 bills, Markey 17.”
I want another senator who will work for Paycheck Fairness, work for the environment, work for working people and against the financial interests who work against us. I know you all do too and hope you’ll put on your walking shoes for Ed. Sign up edmarkey.com
