NEW:Senator Scott Brown Opens MassVictory Center in Worcester

Saturday, March 24, 2012


US Senator Scott Brown in Worcester today

Senator Scott Brown spoke with local supporters at the opening of MassVictory Worcester office at 18 Grafton Street on Saturday and voiced his encouragement for fellow Republicans running for office.

The MassVictory office is a campaign office for several Republicans running for office. It will serve as a call center for several of the campaigns, including Senator Brown's re-election campaign.

“What I’m trying to do is do things a little bit at a time. One good deed begets another good deed… and chip away at the institutional problems,” Brown said to a crowd of about 100 attendees. He talked about other politicians not standing up for important issues, and said, “Worcester deserves better.”

New state Representative Ryan Fattman, Rep. Kim Ferguson, and republicans  Rep. Matt Beaton and Richard Bastien were also in attendance. The senator also spoke briefly with WCRN about the MassVictory opening and high hopes for progress at their new office.

Former Representative, Peter Blute said, “This MassVictory office is going to be open and ready for work... Get used to it. Come here and be part of this effort.”

Blute discussed phone banking and the importance of getting Mass. Republicans in office at all levels. “For Massachusetts Republicans, there are very interesting times.” … also introduced new candidates, saying “That’s what this is all about, helping candidates at all levels win an important election.”

High Sheriff, Lew Evangelidis, who introduced Senator Brown called it “ground zero for the republican party” and echoed Blute’s appreciation of Brown’s independent stance.

“He said he was going to be an independent voice for the people of this country and the people of Massachusetts. He was going to help solve problems,” Evangelidis said. “He wasn’t going down there to fight any partisan battles… and for all that hard work he gets the biggest target on his back of anyone in the United States today.”

Brown voiced his opinions on the current state of politics and said that veterans, small businesses and military expansion are “under attack” facing difficulties and lack of funding right now.

“If we work together to solve these real problems, we can come out of this economic mess better than any other country in the world,” he said. “I read the bills and I understand them, and I see how they affect the people in Massachusetts and the country, and I vote. That’s it.”

Brown said that there is a “wet blanket” being put over jobs and job creation for businesses and individuals.

While national issues were key in his speech, Brown made it clear that central and western Mass. are high on his list of importance.

“There is life after 128, let me tell you… and out west even further. We’ve been trying to address the very real economic issues that are facing this area,” he said. “We need balance on Beacon Hill. Our Founding Fathers wanted balance.”

Brown’s wife of 25 years, Gail Huff, wished those stepping into the arena good luck. “Stick in there, and great things can happen, and you can make a difference,” she said.

The senator’s Saturday schedule began in Boston and also included stops to Chelmsford and Peabody.
