video: NEW: Councilor Lukes Featured in Scott Brown Ad

Friday, August 03, 2012

 

Former Worcester Mayor and current city Councilor-at-Large, Konnie Lukes, is featured in Senator Scott Brown's newest ad, praising the Senator for his bipartisanship.

In the ad, Lukes says, "I was a former mayor, and I'm a Democrat. I am impressed by Scott Brown's independence -- his ability to work with people on both sides of the aisle. I think we need more Scott Browns."

Lukes endorsed Brown and told GoLocal that she is throwing her support behind the Republican candidate because he can get the job done and is willing to cross party lines to do so. She added that his challenger, Elizabeth Warren (D) never asked her for her vote.

"He cuts through all those party alignments. Scott Brown means what he says and Scott Brown does what he says he's going to do," she says in the ad. "I trust Scott Brown to do what's best for Massachusetts."

When she endorsed the Senator in April, Councilor Lukes said she didn't endorse Brown when he first ran for U.S. Senate, but his track record in Congress changed her mind this time. Lukes told GoLocalWorcester, "I have taken a hard look at both candidates. I rarely endorse candidates. But as a freshmen Senator he has been able to achieve a lot and work with both parties."
