Please Vote for Kevin McCrea today
I hope that you vote for me today. I guarantee that you will feel good about the vote, that you won’t feel that the vote is wasted. Every vote that I receive is a vote against the status quo. It is a vote against timid politicians who go along to get along until they want more power and then they make empty promises which can not be verified or backed up.
I have made specific promises, to work in the schools every week, to put a few more cops on the street, to stop giving property and tax breaks away to connected insiders, to eliminate the BRA and even out the balance of power at City Hall.
I once heard someone say, “promise only what you can deliver, and deliver more than you promise”. That is the essence of my campaign. There are no empty promises from me and you will get more than just words from me.
I will make Boston government the most open, honest and accountable in the country. I will value education first, and cut funds from schools last. I won’t raise taxes when we have a spending problem.
I will answer questions, ask questions and engage the community. I look forward to bringing Boston to its potential.
I believe I’m the most progressive candidate in this race. I believe in Universal Health Care, progressive taxes, public schools (not charters), term limits, campaign finance reform, enforcing the Boston Jobs Policy, and my staff reflects the City it serves. The contracts I have done for the City of Boston exceeded the required numbers of residents and minorities. I fought for Open Meeting Laws, while my 3 opponents funded lawsuits and studies to keep the public’s business in the backrooms.
I invite you to compare the specifics of my platform at http://www.kevinmccrea.com with my opponents and see how they have co-opted my positions on the BRA, on transparency, on term limits, on elected members of the School Committee. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Most of all, please vote! It is the easiest way to hold our politicians accountable!
