With over a half a million people in Massachusetts unemployed or underemployed, creating jobs is the number one issue for most voters. They are looking for leadership and where is the incumbent?
Small business and entrpreneurs create the majority of new jobs in our economy. Since 2005 Representative Walz has only voted once to support the people who create the jobs we so desperately need.
In 2007 and 2008 she didn’t even vote on half of the bills important to independent businesses.
And now, in 2010, over 2 years into this recession, she doesn’t even list jobs or the economy as an issue of concern on her campaign website.
If you’re looking for leadership on creating jobs, it’s time to look to someone else.
My name is Brad Marston and I am running for state representative. People try to blame the lack of jobs on the recession but there hasn’t been a single net new job in Massachusetts in the last 12 years. Our state government makes it too hard to start a business and too expensive to hire a new employee.
I come from the private sector and I understand what it takes to create jobs. It doesn’t take over 30 government agencies to start a business and it doesn’t take hundreds of millions of dollars in tax credits to create a job.
It takes a clear and consistent environment of fees and taxes; it takes regulations that are transparent, concise and cost effective.
I’m asking you to put me to work on Beacon Hill so businesses can put people back to work in the Eighth Suffolk and across Massachusetts.
I am the Republican Candidate for State Representative in the Eighth Suffolk District which covers Back Bay, Beacon Hill, The West End and part of Cambridge.
