For the first time, Cambridge voters can cast their ballots up to 11 days before Nov. 8 – this year’s formal Election Day – at five locations around the city.
I am writing to thank the voters of Cambridge who nominated me as the Democratic candidate for state Senate in the Second Middlesex District last week.
No voter should use the late-campaign mysterious mailer brouhaha to decide how they’re casting a ballot. There are plenty of other ways to decide the 26th Middlesex District.
The Tim Toomey reelection campaign has made allegations in a mailer sent to voters of attacks by a “well-financed, shadowy group of anonymous donors,” eventually pointing to Our Revolution, the movement springing from Bernie Sanders’ run for president.
In this race for the 26th Middlesex District of Cambridge and Somerville, the progressive choice is clear on issues such as a clean, safe environment, quality public schools and an economic system that gives working families a fair shot: Mike Connolly.
A “Clean Money for Climate Pledge” by the advocacy group 350 Mass Action has drawn commitments from a half-dozen Cambridge and Somerville politicians promising to refuse campaign contributions related to 10 major fossil fuel and utility companies.
Like many other incumbents, Toomey has rarely taken on the slow-moving, conservative leadership of the House. It’s time to elect a state representative who will be a strong, reliable advocate for progressive causes.
A leader with imagination and vision, Mike Connolly will bring much-needed youthful energy, passion and spirit to our sluggish legislature.
In the race for the State House 26th Middlesex District of Cambridge and Somerville, Mike Connolly has proven himself to be the candidate with the most potential to do something about our ongoing affordable housing crisis.
We deserve a leader who will actively champion our rights to a full range of reproductive health options, including abortion, and who will build a stronger pro-choice majority in the house. Mike Connolly will be that champion.
