From Sentinel & Enterprise
A letter published in the Sentinel & Enterprise on Wednesday stated that state Senate candidate Sue Chalifoux Zephir wouldn't "shake things up" at the Statehouse simply because she is a Democrat.
But I feel Sue is already shaking things up in the race to replace former Sen. Jen Flanagan. She is the only candidate to publicly pledge not to serve on the City Council and state Senate at the same time. And, Sue has called on the other candidates in the race to take the no-double-dipping pledge.
Sue's also refused to accept campaign contributions from the pharmaceutical industry and their lobbyists, because she feels strongly that we need to get big profits out of our health care system.
I know Sue wants to go to the Senate to strongly push Democrats and Republicans in the Legislature to invest in the working families of North Central Massachusetts. She'll take on prescription drug companies and big insurers to bring down the cost of health care. And Sue supports the Fair Share Amendment, that will invest in our schools and repair our roads and bridges.
If you want to "shake things up" at the Statehouse, I think the choice is clear: Vote Sue Chalifoux Zephir on Nov. 7 and Dec. 5. That is what I intend to do.
