Sandi Martinez, candidate for State Senate in the Third Middlesex, has announced the endorsements of several current and former State Legislators.
State Representative Robert S. Hargraves of Groton joins former State Senator Edward P. â€œNedâ€ Kirby of Whitman, and former State Representative Marianne W. Brenton of Burlington, in endorsing Sandi Martinez.
Representative Hargraves said, â€œI have known Sandi Martinez for a long time. She is unyielding in her commitment to family values and honest, transparent Government. I know her to be of impeccable character and stateliness. She is the right person at the right time for the Massachusetts Senate.â€ Sandi Martinez appreciates Hargraves support. â€œI am honored to have the endorsement of a fine public servant like Bob Hargraves. He has been a voice of reason in the legislature. He fought hard and will certainly be missedâ€ said Martinez.
Kirby also had kind words for Sandi Martinez. â€œSandiâ€™s tenacity and integrity will be an asset to the Senate. Her years of experience advocating for the â€˜little guyâ€™ who did not have a voice on Beacon Hill will serve the people of the 3rd Middlesex well. I am proud to support her candidacy.â€ According to Brenton, â€œSandi has many years of experience in public policy and has demonstrated strong conservative values. She has been a consistent advocate for parents and has given voice to those who have been ignored by our elected officials.â€ Martinez noted the importance of the support from experienced legislators. â€œI have always had a great respect for their achievements. Both Ned and Marianne were tireless advocates for their constituents, they are excellent role modelsâ€ said Martinez.
In addition to these endorsements, Martinez has the backing of several public-policy organizations, such as Citizens for Limited Taxation 2 1/2 PAC, Gun Owners Action League, and Mass Citizens for Life. Other supporters include former Massachusetts GOP Chairman, Jim Rappaport, Prop 2 Â½ Author Ed King, businessman Christy Mihos, Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, Tom Hudner, and former Commander of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, Robert Fairbairn.
Sandi asks that Independents and Republicans that will be voting in the Republican Primary on Tuesday, September 14, will consider these endorsements along with her mainstream conservative positions on important issues.
