Gail Huff Brown Kicks off Central Mass Women for Brown
Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Huff Brown visited the Mass Victory Center in downtown Worcester to give words of inspiration and help phone bank for her husband’s race for the US Senate seat.
“I’m mostly excited about the overwhelming support there. It’s going to be close. It’s going to be a couple points one way or the other. And that’s one of the reasons I love Massachusetts,” she said. “Politics here is such an interesting and dynamic world. In full confession, I’m not a Republican. I’m not a Democrat. I am un-enrolled in any party. I’ve never even campaigned in my life. Today’s my first day. This is my first day fulltime, and it’s definitely a lot of work.”
Huff Brown said that women are a key part of winning the election and energized the group about what they can do. She also announced that she will be helping the campaign effort daily.
Those gathered at the event came to show local support for Brown’s campaign. Donna Colorio, Worcester school committee member and Scott Brown supporter introduced Huff Brown to the group, saying, “This is a group of strong, determined, and dynamic women.”
“I’m interested in getting out and getting the message out about Scott. Scott is doing everything he said he would do when he decided to run for US Senate. When we went down to Washington he continues to do all the things you sent him down there to do – to think independently, to vote independently,” Huff Brown said. “He crosses the aisle. He believes very strongly that ideas don’t come from parties. Ideas come from collective consensus.”
Bonnie Johnson, the regional co-coordinator of Central Mass Women for Brown said that the key to supporting Women for Brown is through action.
“We’re here because we want to get active,” Johnson said. She and Colorio presented Huff Brown with a couple gifts from Worcester including a framed keepsake from one of Worcester's original businesses. St. Pierre Manufacturing Company, a business that originated in Worcester made instruments to cut diamonds, and horseshoes.
Angela Davis, Chair of the statewide Women for Brown coalition, founded the Women for Brown coalition during Brown’s first campaign. She said that the organization has over 1,000 members and continues to grow.
