Bob Monty on Rep. Ron Mariano’s Campaign Finance: Through the Looking Glass August 12, 2010

Ronald Mariano
Anyone who is interested enough to look through Rep. Ron Mariano’s (D-Quincy, Weymouth, Holbrook and possibly the planet Mars) campaign spending reports for the first reporting period of 2008 will find that he spent $5,713 for ”lunches and dinners with legislators” – those dreaded part-time lawmakers – and most were paid with his AMEX credit card. Some were in very intimate North End Italian settings of all places. You’ll find all that you need in his campaign finance reports here. For the same time period he gave about $200 bucks to charities – proving once and for all the old axiom that ”Charity begins at home” – or at least on ”home” cooked meals at pricey Boston restaurants. Many of them are among the well-known cozy Italian cucinas… uhhh, sorry, I hinted at that above. "

Curtin Henry “Curt” Myers
R-

Concern noted.

Under review...

    YES NO NO

21 year old college student, lives in Brookline, very energetic. Running in one of the most Democrat-dominated districts in the state, run by a fossil, Frank Smizik, who "stays in office by showing up, and "sleepwalking through the statehouse".

"My opponent has never had to utter the words 'my opponent' since he was elected 14 years ago."

(4) Endorsed by CLT, does not support the proposed Brookline override and recognizes the huge cost Brookline & Newton incur annually for educating ~500 non-resident students in each community’s respective public school system

.

Curt gave perhaps the BEST speech at the MassGOP convention. Watch here.

Noted: 3:00-4:10 Idea behind Common Core is correct, Common Core should be a baseline, though not a requirement.  Myers Supports Charter Schools and likes Michelle Rhee’s & Rahm Emanuel’s work on education reform.  Probably unaware that Rhee and Emanuel support Common Core.
NO for Pro-Family: 
NO for Pro-Life:  

Political Science Major at Union College, son of political operative and Romney advisor Beth Myers.

DID WE GET A RATING WRONG?
Well, with incumbents, VOTES speak loud, but with "challengers",
picking through the mud can get murky at times.
