To the editor,
The evolution of the career politician has been a problem in state politics for several decades. As local congressmen and woman make longterm connections, it becomes more difficult for the representative of a specific district to say “No!”
How would it be possible to say, “That’s really not a good investment for a cash strapped state,” to the people whose votes you need two years later? If I’m elected to the State Senate this year, I pledge to remain in the Assembly no longer than three terms. That’s six years. If I can’t help reduce the state debt and ease the oppressive tax burden on everyone in that amount of time, then it will be time for someone else to give it a shot.
Jim Sheehan has been in the State Senate for twelve years. That’s six terms. Our economic situation has not changed since he has been in office. Clearly it’s time for someone else. I’m Tina McKendall and I can get this done. Vote for me on November 6th.
