Former State Rep and Senate Candidate for Therese Murray’s old seat Patrick was a former State Rep from 2001 to 2011.  Since 2012, he has been the Democratic State Committeeman for the Plymouth and Barnstable District.

The Democratic Socialists of America also endorsed him in his last run for State Rep in 2010.  Mass Alliance also endorsed him in 2008 and 201

He's peddling the notion that he's an 'independent'....CAUTION EXTREMIST LIBERAL ALERT!

Heather Mullins YES YES   YES    

YES for Limited Government: From Her Website, opposes Common Core
YES for Second Amendment: From Her Website
Keep Taxes Low: From Her Website, opposes the automatic gas tax

FINALLY LEAVING OFFICE WITH A FULL PENSION (unfortunately).

When this 'lady' goes to endorse some political spender Democrat hack, remember where she stands, what she has done, what she has said, and what she has failed to do.
We'll leave this posting here for nostalgia.

"You might have heard of this little thing called the tea-bag movement, tea party movement....nutbag." Terry Murray attacks the Tea Party.

Believes EVERYONE Should be allowed to come to U.S. and the GOV.T should support them.

Let Sen. Marzilli (the lewd wall-of-shame-entry) keep his chairmanship position in the Senate (additional $, additional $ for 'retirement') despite his having to step away from the job (see wall-of-shame entry). This woman is far--far--far to left ...a true extremist.

Let us be serious folks: this is a very rich owner of Cape Air, very very rich Democrat who broke fundraising and spending records with an inredible war chest...
yes, he bought the position, as it's a rare person who can raise 1/3rd to 1/2 a million to compete against this Kennedy wannabe... He's as liberal as they come, yet from a traditionally conservative district. Regretably, few see his stances, just his money and friendly face.

Here is my pledge:

I will support and work for tougher gun control laws in Massachusetts this coming session.


(mass already has some of the toughest gun control laws in the nation.)

(4) 12% according to MassFiscalScorecard

(6) Endorsed by NARAL 2012

 

Started campaign for governor but due to his ownership issues of an airline, and other deemed conflicts, had to return a portion of his campaign funds and instead run for re-election to Senate where he has voted to raise taxes or otherwise offend taxpayers 88% of the time, with a smile of course.
