EXCLUSIVE: Warren Opening Worcester Office

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

 

After accusations of being MIA in Central Mass. GoLocalWorcester exclusively learned the Elizabeth Warren Campaign is opening a Worcester office at 442 Park Ave.

The former Mitsubishi car dealership is now plastered with Warren campaign posters and filled with signs.

Robert Baker, manager of Holden business RJB Enterprises, LLC, which owns the property was able to confirm that the space is slated to be Warren’s new office.

While the Warren campaign was unable to confirm any information on the site and is not ready for the opening yet, campaign press secretary, Alethea Harney provided a statement concerning Warren’s continuing efforts to make a presence in the area.

Following her nomination from the Massachusetts Democratic Party at last weekend’s State Convention in Springfield, she is ready to put more effort into her “grassroots momentum.”

“Elizabeth is grateful to receive the endorsement of delegates from Central Mass at the Democratic State Convention, and she will continue to reach out to families across the region,” the statement read. “Elizabeth’s grassroots momentum is continuing to build across Central Massachusetts, and she has made it a top priority to focus on Worcester, meeting with local residents, visiting businesses, and attending events throughout the area.”

“There are currently 3,927 people from the region who have signed onto the campaign as volunteers and 2,639 donors who donated more than $300,000,” it said.

The Competition

Senator Scott Brown’s campaign had an early presence, opening the Mass. Victory Center near downtown Worcester and galvanizing support at a local PAC, Activate Worcester.

“I would say that Scott Brown has been galvanizing people to support him and encourage other to support him in Worcester since a year and a half ago – since before he was elected,” said Bonnie Johnson, Activate Worcester supporter. Worcester and Worcester Country – there are a lot of Scott Brown supporters. We’re doing what’s needed to get his message out there, and we look forward to Scott Brown being elected for another six years.”

Johnson pointed out that Senator Brown has two offices here, one being his campaign office at 18 Grafton Street, and one in the federal courthouse.

I wonder if Warren will pay homage to her heritage...perhaps by placing a cigar store Indian near the front door?

Opening an office here is one thing. Being there on a regular basis is something else. And why did she have to be criticized by the press before opening the office? Shows you just how much she cares about central MA!
