Webster Democrat urges voters to approve question
ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL:
Webster, MA. Donald Bourque (D-Webster) candidate for the 18th Worcester District state representative’s seat confirmed today that he supports the October 4th ballot question for the renovation of the Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School.
“As a local businessman who places workers in jobs every day, I urge the voters of Webster and Oxford to vote “yes” on this question on October 4, “ Bourque said from his campaign headquarters today. “I wholeheartedly support this project because we can not expect our children to succeed in today’s incredibly competitive world without the best education we can possibly give them. In fact, there are thousands of jobs right here in Massachusetts that are going unfilled because we don’t have workers who are adequately trained to do them. “
“We also can’t afford to reject a 65% reimbursement from the state’s School Building Committee,“ he added. “Yes, times are tough but they aren’t going to get better if our kids aren’t able to get good paying jobs when they finish school. They will need those jobs to support their families and Bay Path is one of the best ways to help them achieve a bright future,” Bourque said.
Bourque won the Democratic Primary on September 6 and is looking forward to winning the November 6 general election. “Solutions to our problems with infrastructure and services will be found in our ability to approach them together to maximize our resources,” Bourque explained. “Our Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical School – shared by 10 towns – is a terrific example of what we can offer our citizens when we work together.”
