Candidate Enjoys Broad Support Without Accepting PAC or Special Interest Contributions
State Representative candidate Dan Winslow today filed his Pre-Primary campaign report with the Massachusetts Office of Campaign Finance,Â http://www.efs.cpf.state.ma.us/DisplayReport.aspx?reportId=119296, showing that he has raised more than $42,000 for his effort to earn election in the 9th Norfolk House district.Â With the exception of one donation from Scott Brown’s political committee, all of Winslow’s contributors consisted of individual donorsÂ and not PACs.Â Winslow is the only candidate in the raceÂ who refuses to accept contributions from PACs or special interests.Â Winslow has more than $20,000 cash on hand as he enters the last two months of the campaign.
“I am so thankful for the support of so many friends, family and citizens in the 9th Norfolk House district,” said Winslow.Â “This level of support will ensure that my message to create private sector jobs and help our economy, reduce wasteful spending to keep taxes low, and to preserve core local services such as education, public safety and infrastructure will be heard by every voter before November.”Â Winslow served as the Presiding Justice of the Wrentham District Court before leaving the bench to serve as Governor Romney’s Chief Legal Counsel during the state’s last fiscal downturn.Â He is running on a platform of fiscal prudence to “get Massachusetts working again.”Â He has made detailed proposals to grow the economy, cut waste, and improve government transparency and accountability on his website,Â www.danwinslow.com.
Winslow plans to officially kick off his campaign with a party at Fore Kicks in Norfolk on Wednesday, September 15 from 7 to 9 p.m., with music provided by DJ Reggie Beas, lots of food and cash bar.Â Admission is free and everyone interested in meeting Dan Winslow or volunteering to help with his campaign is welcome.Â He filed his campaign finance report three days before the deadline.Â The 9th Norfolk House district includes the towns of Plainville, Norfolk, Wrentham, and parts of Medfield, Millis and Walpole.
