The proposed news congressional district, released by the Massachusetts legislature today, Nov. 7, has Markey's hometown of Malden and Framingham now both in the 5th district.

The legislature was asked to redraw the congressional districts for Massachusetts from its current 10 districts to 9, due to a loss of population within the Bay State.

Markey was my congressman when I grew up in Revere, and by gum I don't want to have to break in another one.

Sorry to say Markey and all the rest of them are useless! They are career politicians that are taking us to the cleaners. They ALL should be replaced....the problem is the replacements would be just as bad. There should be some mandatory term limits on how long they can be in there. The longer they stay in the more corrupt they get. Jim@ccfiile.com

Sorry, Jim. I had an issue this summer that required the Congreeman's attention. He and his office replied and responded quickly for a swift resolution. He contacted my family directly himself without staff intervention. Mind you, we did contact him using "honey" and not "vinegar".

Lisa... Get them to stand up for America then see what happens! You can give them all the honey you want...... The country is gone and it's because of these thieves. This is what happens when your town takes a stand against illegal immigration. http://tinyurl.com/7q7uvk7 Jim@ccfiile.com
