Editorial: Supporting Marty Lamb for Republican State Committee

contribute's picture

I would like to thank Marty Lamb for his leadership in repealing the automatic gas tax hikes. He led the statewide effort to have the legislators be responsible. Legislators now have to vote every year to account for their actions because of the efforts of Marty Lamb. No one in the race for the State Committee on March 1st has credentials anywhere close to Marty. As a retired Army Officer I can attest to his character and selflessness. We need someone with his determination and dedication to bring some balance into the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
