Editorial: Supporting Marty Lamb for Republican State Committee

contribute's picture

Dear Editor,

We are writing in support of Marty Lamb for Republican State Committee. Marty is a true leader with pure motives.

As one of the chairmen of the successful effort to repeal automatic gas tax hikes, Marty built a grassroots team of over 1000 volunteers. The effort to stop the worst tax increase in history of our state helped GOP candidates and helped carry Charlie Baker into office!

Moreover, Marty Lamb saved us all money at the pump.
