Press Release from Committee to Elect Jon Fetherston:
While it seems State Rep. Tom Sannicandro (Ashland-D), who represents Framingham and Ashland, doesn’t have time to debate the issues with his opponent, Jon Fetherston (a Republican), he does have time to attend a fundraiser tonight, Oct. 16 in Ashland.
Sannicandro has turned down several invitations from local groups representing
taxpayers and small business to debate. The panelists and moderators for these debates were chosen to provide a balanced view so there is no legitimate reason to refuse.
The keynote guest at Sannicandro's Ashland fundraiser is none other than our Governor Deval Patrick. This is notable, in that Governor Patrick hasn’t attended these events for other local candidates.
Sannicandro has plenty of money plus significant support from the State
Democratic Party and unions. Why does he want even more money from his supporters?
Maybe he has a bad habit of spending other people’s money. He seems to be pulling out all the stops to win against what his campaign has termed “an aggressive Republican challenger." He now has to work very hard and he isn’t used to it. This is his first real challenge.
We have a drug mixing lab in Framingham that has sickened and killed innocent people across the country and a mismanaged state lab that has caused the release of hundreds of criminals onto our streets to continue their careers. The Governor is also supporting one of the few state representatives, who voted against the EBT Card Reform bill. Does the Governor really support all of this?
What is Sannicandro worried about? Simply that Jon Fetherston would make a great state representative and the people of Ashland and Framingham know it.
