Senator Scott Brown in West Roxbury; Meets Catholic Memorial Students

Republican US Senator Scott Brown campaigned in West Roxbury on Tuesday morning.


Scott Brown knows West Roxbury is a battleground between he and Elizabeth Warren in their US Senate race. With that in mind, Brown was once again in West Roxbury on Tuesday morning meeting residents, and some Catholic Memorial students.

When asked why he visited West Roxbury, Brown said: 

During these next 21 days, I will continue taking my message of being an independent fighter for jobs to all corners of Massachusetts, including West Roxbury. Voters face a stark choice in next month's election. Professor Warren's economic prescriptions of higher taxes and more spending would destroy jobs and make a bad economy even worse. It's no wonder even leading Democrats have called her 'catastrophically anti-business.' I have walked the main streets and visited small business owners across the City of Boston. The last thing they need is more taxation and regulation from Washington DC. I don't want to see empty store fronts in West Roxbury or anywhere else for that matter.

Brown and supporters were doing a standout at the intersection of VFW Parkway and Spring Street.
Several Catholic Memorial students on their way to school went over to meet Brown while he was waving hello to drivers.

Starting in his 2010 campaign for the US Senate seat Brown has often visited West Roxbury.

Brown has visited veterans and staff at the VA Hospital; on another day visited the .

The senator also attended the Official Inauguration Party of the Unofficial Mayor of West Roxbury event for Richie Gormley. Earlier this year, he started the Corrib 5k Road Race; and went to the Shamrock Shootout on Temple Street on St. Patricks Day.

Brown was also present to greet state Senator Mike Rush, D-Norfolk/Suffolk, when he had his welcome home party at the Boston Elks Lodge.
Of course, there's also a Brown campaign office at 100 Spring Street.

Scott Brown is running some ads on TV where he's making false claims about Elizabeth Warren. I'm reminded of what Republicans did to Vietnam Veteran Max Cleland and the Swifboating of John Kerry in 2004. While I was never a big fan of John Kerry what they did to him was wrong. We all know Scott Brown as a nice guy but he hired a guy name Jim Barnett to manage his campaign who worked for Karl Rove in the White House in 2000 and 2001. Jim got himself into some trouble in his home state of of Vermont doing this of dirty campaigning, and he's not welcome by either Republicans and Democrats up there. I thought Scott Brown was better than trying to win re-election by telling falsehoods about his opponent.

Brown can't point to many accomplishments that help Mass. citizens, so he and his campaign goes on the attack with lies and distortions. I hope he didn't repeat his many lies and half-truths to impressionable school children, though when I was in grade school, I had to sit thru a couple of local Republican diatribes, and I knew they were missing important points even then. So, kids, tell your mommies and daddies that if they want any kind of financial reform that prevents another 2008-style crash, then please vote for Elizabeth Warren.

Neil, you need to do some fact checking. Almost all the claims made by Barnet and others about Professor Warren are true. She has no Indian heritage, she wont disclose her corporate client list or cases that she was "of counsel" on. She is the mother of the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau which is grossly overpaying it's staff and has actually doubled the cost of closing a mortgage - ask any mortgage banker what they think of Ms. Warren. Just like her mentor, Obama, she would be just another divisive Senator marching in lock-step to the party wish. We need to send Scott back in November and hope that other states will also vote for candidates that will commit to working together to get done the work we sent them there to do.
