The groundswell of support around the idea of challenging Rep. Stephen Lynch comes as no surprise; I have shared with many of you a growing sense of dissatisfaction with my Congressman’s leadership and votes.
His wrong-headed and mystifying vote against one of the most significant pieces of legislation in our time only underscores how out of touch he has been with core Democratic values.
I am deciding whether to run with seriousness and great deliberation, so that when I do make the choice, it will be the correct one for myself, my family, and the voters of the 9th District.
As part of my decision-making process, I am having a series of conversations with people who can share important insight and information as I consider running. These conversations take some time, but please know I am cognizant of the preciousness of time and the need to move swiftly once a sound decision has been made. I ask you to bear with me for a little longer.
Meanwhile, what is clear is that there is a strong, organized movement in Massachusetts that is ready to get to work to make sure progressive values are represented in Washington.
Mr. Lynch MUST be challenged this fall, and the beginning of that process starts right here, with activists, organizers and voters coming together to demand something better, and working together towards that goal. I will keep you updated, and thank you so much for your incredible energy and support.
Please share widely!
