Shawn Dooley: Best Choice for State Senate
Have you seen the impressive list of endorsers for Shawn Dooley for State Senate?
Governor Charlie Baker, Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, Governor Bill Weld, along with a slew of local officials, the National Federation of Independent Business (the nation’s largest small business organization), and many of our local police and fire unions are among the groups who have lined up to support Shawn.
Why are so many people including Gov. Charlie Baker getting behind Dooley in his bid for the State Senate?
As Shawn says himself, “We need to get back to a common sense, people focused approach to governance in this country. The extremes on both sides are destroying our great country and I firmly believe that 90 percent of us are in the middle and we need to stop playing into the nonsense of the fringe that only seek to divide.”
As a State Representative, Shawn Dooley has a proven track record of putting people ahead of politics, working to grow our economy, supporting our local police, helping taxpayers, and so much more. He has been an independent voice.
He also has the experience we need. Shawn currently serves as the ranking member on the Joint Committee on Financial Services; the Joint Committee on Public Health; the Joint Committee on Election Laws; and the House Committee on Federal Stimulus Oversight. Additionally, Shawn had the special honor of being selected by the Chief Justice of the Trial Court to serve as the non-attorney member on the Child Support Guidelines Task Force.
On the other hand, his opponent, Rebecca Rausch, brags (during non-election years) that she is the furthest left person in the Senate. She was the leader of the defund the police movement in the Senate which would have decimated our local police. Her extremism doesn’t stop there. Rausch tried to end qualified immunity (the good Samaritan law) for police officers. No good deed would go unpunished!
As our next State Senator, Shawn Dooley will bring his tireless work ethic and common-sense approach to the job. Unlike his opponent, he is not beholden to any special interest groups so we can always count on him being our independent voice.
Shawn’s focus is to make Massachusetts affordable for all of us. As a former small business owner with 17 years of financial industry experience, he understands what a tremendous impact unchecked inflation and overzealous tax policies can have on families. That’s why he will work to lower our tax burden. He is the only candidate in this race that supports suspending the gas tax and sending the 3 billion dollar surplus tax revenue back to the taxpayers.
To keep our economy rolling and avoid a recession, Shawn is committed to supporting small businesses that create the majority of new jobs in Massachusetts.
Just as important as economic issues, Shawn will work to strengthen public safety. Having served as an On-Call Firefighter/EMT for the Plainville Fire Department and as the Senior SAFE Coordinator, he is committed to supporting our first responders who put their lives on the line to keep us safe. As our Senator, Shawn will support our local police by giving them the proper funding, increase training, and the tools they need to protect our community.
Whether it is supporting our police, lowering the tax burden, helping the economy or putting people ahead of politics, Shawn Dooley is the only candidate with a proven track record that we can trust. His agenda is our agenda – not the special interest groups. Shawn Dooley is the best choice to be our next State Senator.
