Check out these 3 letters published in the local paper for Scott Brown:
ACTON, MASS. - Brown to get us back on track
Scott Brown looks like a movie star. His family is beautiful, even the dog. With the compliments out of the way let’s get down to business. Mr. Brown, Lt. Colonel Brown, is an intelligent, well-spoken individual. He is an attorney, knows the law, and knows what is needed for homeland security. He has the rare ability to do things for people without benefit for himself. This indeed is rare.
Mr. Brown will continue to fight against raising taxes, thus letting the small businesses contribute to the nation’s growth and well being. As the “Public Servant of the Year,” awarded him in 2004, for his work in protecting victims rights, and helping to change sex offender laws he has shown that he is head and shoulders above the many who just sit and ignore those who need help.
We need Scott Brown in Washington to help turn around the economy and get this wonderful country back on the right track. — Barbara Howell, Acton
Now we’re down to one choice
Prior to the primary last month, a widely-read Boston newspaper deliberated wisely between six candidates in two parties, and then endorsed two of them for United States senator. Fortunately, one of those two candidates won his primary. I urge all now to rally behind Scott Brown, the primary winner endorsed by that widely-read newspaper, to be our next Senator from Massachusetts.
Clearly, Scott Brown is the candidate with the most formidable qualifications. His serving in the Army National Guard for 30 years shows his zeal, hard work, and dedication to public service. In Washington, with out-of-control spending and new mountains of debt that our children and grandchildren (and so on…) will unfortunately be paying off, Scott will bring a needed breath of fresh air for fiscal responsibility amid reckless, profligate, and seemingly unbounded spending.
Perhaps the priority issue for our new senator will be the Health Care package now being debated. I believe Scott Brown to be the best choice to help steer this in a way that does not bankrupt this nation for the ages, and does not remove half a trillion dollars away from the health care of seniors (with “seniors” potentially now defined down to 55 years old!).
I urge my fellow Actonians to consider the notion of party balance in a Senate race with such a clear choice for a candidate with distinction and qualifications, and vote for Scott Brown to be our next United States Senator. — Dave Lunger, 5 Wampanoag Drive, Acton
Bring bipartisanship with Brown
This will be the era of bi-partizanship in Washington. At least that is what the incumbent President has said many times, before he was elected. Of course, we understand that bi-partizenship works both ways, but in this legislature, there has not been much reaching across the aisle by the party in power, who figure they do not need the other party if they have all the votes.
They are determined to pass an enormous health care bill no matter what the cost, no matter what the bureaucracy, no matter how it hurts Medicare and small business, and most non-partisan experts agree this will be the case. The Senate may well pass a health care bill before Christmas, but it then is up to both Senate and House to come up with a combined bill to send to the President, and that will run into next year.
Our new U.S. Senator will therefore be available to vote on any final bill, so think about who you will vote for in January. The current Democratic candidate enthusiastically endorses the current outrageous bill which will put this country in terrible financial straits and adversely affect all of our health costs, just to have a “historic” new program on the books.
Candidate Scott Brown sincerely believes all Americans deserve health care, but we should not have another huge bureaucratic program to provide it. He will work for an improved, sensible plan that will not put this country into bankruptcy. He has the experience in the legislature and is truly dedicated to the people of Massachusetts. Please consider Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown when you vote in January. — J. Mahoney, Oneida Road, Acton
