To the Editor:
There are many reasons I am going to vote for Kathleen Walker for State Rep in the 6th Worcester District on November 6th. I trust her. I trust that she speaks the truth. And I trust that she has the will, the experience, and the negotiating skills to accomplish what she believes is best for the voters of Dudley, Charlton, Southbridge, and Spencer.
Kathleen is an avowed proponent for meaningful, productive jobs for our District. There is not a more committed advocate for our schools, our environment, or our communities than Kathleen.
I understand that the current Rep, is not well-liked or respected by the House leadership, (and some members of his own party), Kathleen has already been meeting and working with the House leadership to gain support for each of our towns. In order to be productive as a State Rep you need to be honest and respected. She is.
According to campaign finance reports, Kathleen’s financial support is LOCAL. Over 73% of her campaign contributions are from citizens of the District. On the other hand, more than 80% of her opponent’s contributions are from OUTSIDE the District. That tells you something, doesn’t it?
When Kathleen files a bill, she will shepherd it through to passage, unlike her opponent who doesn’t have the clout to get the most trivial bills through in a timely manner. And that’s not just because he is a Republican.
Kathleen answers questions and returns phone calls. She doesn’t dodge constituents, hoping that they’ll go away. People will always know where she stands on an issue. She doesn’t give long, rambling answers that leave folks shaking their heads and saying “huh?”
I urge you to join me in voting for Kathleen Walker. She has been, and will be, open, honest, and effective…for US.
Paul Joseph, Selectman
