Now, onto the squashing rumors that Tim Murray is the âultimate insiderâ (because I am sick of hearing it). Murray has been Mayor of Worcester for about 5 years now. Most people donât pay attention to those west of the 495 belt, because oftentimes Central & Western MA are forgotten by those in the Eastern part of the state (as I am sure many of you are familiar). Despite this Mayor Murray has gained public and political attention throughout his time in office for being a huge proponent for progress and change within Worcester and other cities and towns. The work he has done with the environment (cleaning brown fields & pushing alterative energy), healthcare initiatives, closing corporate tax loopholes, fighting against state level education cuts, among many other things has caused people to take notice. Do you really think he would have such state -wide support otherwise?
Murray has not only advocated for change while Mayor of Worcester, but actually brought change and progress to one of MAâs old industrial cities, which youâll be able to see at the convention in June. He has worked with a number of politicians on all levels, state, local & federal to push these reforms and changes. They are supporting him because they have seen the work he has done, not simply because he is the Mayor of Worcester. He is the only candidate to continually put out policy proposals: first his âMunicipal Bill of Rightsâ & then his âRail Plan.â As one of my friends said, âHe has such big ideas he shouldnât be kept at the local level when he could be helping the entire state.â
