As the CEO of a Westborough-based energy services business that employs 750 people and a resident of the Berkshires, I have worked closely with Congressman Ed Markey for the past six years as Congress has tackled difficult challenges related to the growth of my industry. Rep. Markey has been actively involved in the ARRA/stimulus package, climate change policies, the Home Star legislation that I had a hand in crafting, and the recent "fiscal cliff’ negotiations. Markey has been a leader on these issues, allowing my company and the thousands of other companies throughout the commonwealth that do business in this industry to create jobs, grow the local economy, and improve the environment.
Massachusetts is choosing a leader to follow the incredible service of John Kerry. I believe that Ed Markey is best person for the job. I have had many meetings with Congressman Markey in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C., and we have shared many flights back home from D.C. I can personally attest to his commitment to the issues that are critical to the commonwealth, and to his leadership on crucial issues, including telecommunications, energy, climate change and health care.
I am proud to support his candidacy for the U. S. Senate.
