Three cheers for my hometown paper!
Gunn has already made good on his promise to listen to the people, holding several town hall-style forums across the far-flung district. (Here the incumbent, ever the earnest lecturer, could learn something from his challenger.) Gunn’s candidacy is truly a grass-roots effort born of the tea-party movement, and he acknowledges that his is an uphill battle. He said he is relying on the more conservative pockets of the districts, such as those right here in the North Central region, to deliver him victory.
Oh, lest we forget, there is an independent in the race, Michael Engel, who is a self-described Democratic socialist. Enough said there.
The race for the 1st Congressional District is a microcosm of the battle for control of Capitol Hill being waged across the country. It’s a race of big government vs. smaller government. More taxation vs. less taxation. Government telling you what’s best for you vs. you telling the government what’s best for government. That’s why we endorse Bill Gunn for Congress in the 1st District.
I beg I URGE my readers to consider kicking in to help Bill, if he had 1/10 of the money that is going to Sean Bielat he would have this race in a walk.
Help us make ma-1 part of the big red wave!
