Senator Scott Brown will appear at a fundraising reception for Brad Marston’s campaign for Massachusetts State Representative in the Eighth Suffolk District. The event will be held at The Kinsale, 2 Center Plaza, Cambridge Street in Boston on August 25th at 6:30 pm.
In a statement, Mr. Marston said “I am honored to have Senator Brown’s support. I intend to legislate on Beacon Hill in the same bipartisan fashion as he has in Washington DC. Senator Brown attended my campaign kick off back in November where I said it was time to ‘not look for the Republican answer or the Democratic answer but rather we need to look for the right answer.’
Clearly Senator Brown’s participation will be a tremendous boost to my campaign for state representative as we head into the final weeks of the campaign. I believe it makes an important statement about the viability of my campaign in a district that has been essentially written off for Republicans for years. I have spoken to hundreds of voters across the district and they tell me they are frustrated by the lack of action on jobs, spending and lack of transparency despite a veto-proof majority in the legislature.”
Previously, Candidate for Governor Charlie Baker, Senate Minority Leader Richard Tisei, House Minority Leader Bradley Jones and State Party Chairman Jennifer Nassour have campaigned on Mr. Marston’s behalf.
The Eighth Suffolk District is comprised of parts of the Back Bay, Beacon Hill, West End and areas of Cambridge. Mr. Marston is a first time candidate after spending nearly 30 years in the private sector in investment banking and the hospitality industry. He was the lead organizer of the Boston Independence Day Tea Party in 2009 which attracted over 2000 attendees. Speakers included noted scholars including Drs. Yaron Brooke and John Ridpath of the Ayn Rand Institute, Dr. Nicholas Sanchez of the College of the Holy Cross and Dr. John Lewis of Duke University.
