Do you know who the leaders of your political party are?
Republican politics have been somewhat ignored the past few years with a democrat super majority in both the Massachusetts House and Senate and all of our state-wide and federal offices currently held by democrats. It comes as no surprise that, in July of 2013, the Democrats passed, without debate, an enormous anti-small business tax that directly affects Bearskin Neck in Rockport; the great shops on Main Street in Gloucester; the beaches of Manchester; and the restaurants in Essex. In fact, our own local state Representative, Democrat Ann Margaret Ferrante, voted for this tax. If not for the local Cape Ann GOP committees, most would not even know. This could have been predicted given that Rep. Ferrante has voted over 99% of the time with her Democrat house leadership, showing no independence for her constituents on Cape Ann.
Despite all of this, I feel the best I have felt in a long time about the future of our party. Even more of a surprise to some is that the current leaders of the Massachusetts Republican Party are two women, both in their 30’s, who bring to Massachusetts Republicans a new perspective. Both have an incredible passion for building our party and keeping all politics local. Kirsten Hughes, elected to Mass Republican Party Chair in January of this year, and Chanel Prunier, elected to Republican National Committeewomen after former Lt. Governor Kerry Healey resigned in May of this year.
