PREVIEW: Investigation by GoLocalWorcester Looks at Warren and Brown Campaign Spending

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

 

Both Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown are campaigning on the promise to grow jobs in Massachusetts. Combined the two campaigns have spent more than $27 million dollars through August reporting, but of those dollars spent only about 20% has been spent with companies in the Commonwealth, according to an investigation by GoLocalWorcester. Millions have gone out of state to politically-tied companies.

Are They Ignoring MA Businesses?

From printing, to web development to graphic design millions of dollars have bypassed Massachusetts-based companies for politically-tied companies in DC, San Francisco, and Chicago.

Coming Wednesday: Elizabeth Warren’s Campaign, Thursday, an overview of Scott Brown and Friday a round-up of reaction to the story

All I can say for sure is that I received a couple of Vote For Elizabeth Warren T-shirts with my donations. Both have the Made In America tag along with a Union Bug. For those dopes that don't know the Union Bug is a little emblem on the shirt that means union workers performed the work.

Both candidates should get a slap on the wrist for not pumping their many millions campaign dollars back into our Massachusetts economy.....
Ed: the t-shirts and brochures were probably outsourced to another state - union label or not I want our states workers benefitting by this campaign whereby one of these 2 individuals will be our US Senator............Massachusetts jobs should be job #1..........not spending their campaign largess out of the state.......

Q you don't know if they were "outsourced" so don't go saying things you don't know about. You're beginning to sound like narrow minded Scott Brown. Another thing, everything is about what you want and you never consider the facts in evidence when it comes to Scott Brown.
