I support Elizabeth Warren. She is not a part of the Political Machine. Even before she started her trek for the U.S. Senate seat, she has always been outspoken for the working and middle classes, and would do what ever she was able to do for people of color.
I truly believe she needs to win Scott Brown’s seat. He hasn’t done much except vote down bills that could benefit our community.
The color of a politician doesn’t mean too much to me. It’s more important to see how she or he will stand up and vote. Mr. Brown has become a part of the old boy’s network.
So I encourage everyone to get out and vote on Election Day. If you don’t get out and vote, don’t cry when services that you need and depend on get cut!
But most of all, don’t forget to get out and vote for President Barack Obama. If you don’t, it will be welcome back, Mitt Romney.Audrey L. Dickerson Dorchester
In 2010 we should have learned that in politics there are no “safe” districts. As we all know so well, Democrats right here in Massachusetts lost a seat in the U.S. Senate that had been held by the late Senator Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy for almost 50 years.
Moreover, it was won by Scott Brown, a relatively unknown Republican.
Those who would stay home from the polls this fall believing that “the good guys will win” remind me of the following folk wisdom from my youth:All too often when There can be no doubt, An easy shoo-in Becomes a boot out. David Via email
