117 reasons to be hopefull this November

A total of 117 people are running for the State House this year and 10 congressional seats are being challenged. This hasn't happened in years and may get 2.5 million people to the voting both this November. We may know little to nothing of the challengers at this point, but ask yourself, could 117 new legislators do any worse than those who have been there for a decade or longer? Will they elect a corrupt and unethcial speaker of the house? Will they let unions and special interest run Beacon Hill? I think not.

The ruling party has nothing to be proud of, nor does the minority party, but without any moderation or compromise from both sides, nothing good will happen for our future.

I say... vote each and every incumbent out of office and get back to electing people who will and want to represent us and not the people who continue to use us as a floor mat.

That’s the best news I have heard in a long time. Lets hope people take advantage of the options they have this time around.

Hope that Framingham backs you this time Jim. You are the only legitimate option for change that we have.

Some unsolicited advice here Pillsbury. You need to stay on point with issues that effect Framingham. You have a chance to actually beat the ruling party this time out. But to do that, you need to get lots and lots of attention and show lots and lots of closed minded people that you know what you are talking about. In order to do that, you need to talk about the issues the people who live in Framingham who will be voting on November 2nd care about. You are well informed on lots of issues, and that will serve you will at the state house, but all the people who vote for the state rep from the 6th Middlesex care about are the issues that affect their lives. In order to put all your knowledge to work at the state house you need to get elected, and to get elected, you need to impress the people who can vote for you, and to impress them, you need to show you know what is going on in Framingham, what is good for Framingham, and what can be done at the state level to help Framingham. It is all about that.
