(2) *under review

State Rep. James Cantwell, D-Marshfield, said one of the questions that need to be answered following the Marshfield crime is what can be done to keep towns safe.

“In addition to supporting a measure to exclude all undocumented aliens from being eligible for publicly subsidized housing and any public benefits, I have supported Secure Communities, the federal to federal sharing program that identifies and deports certain illegal immigrants who are determined to be dangerous,” Cantwell said. “Regardless of the view that states somehow have the ability to opt out of this program, the Department of Homeland Security will unilaterally deploy it in all 50 states by 2013. I support beginning that process now.”

* * * * * *

Former State Representative, Brother of Plymouth DA John Cruz, primarying Colleen Maloney not long after giving her $100.  Cruz donated $600 to Battlin’ Brad Jones and $200 to Boomin’ Bruce Tarr.

Editor's Note: Looks like another Brad Jones recruit, to keep Jones in power, supporting Democrat House Speaker Bob DeLeo. There is a pattern here of at least 7 candidates who had late-entries against them, all linked to Brad Jones, the guy who WRKO talk show hosts refer to as DeLeo's poodle.
