Electing Scott Brown would be bad news for Boston. He will work against the very programs that serve as the lifelines for those struggling to survive these challenging times. He will work to slash federal funding to UMass Boston and other public colleges and universities around the state. He will oppose health care reform that would ensure better coverage for our seniors and families. He will fight against what you and I care about, those issues and ideals I actively championed during my campaign. He would make things tougher for my constituents and shatter the dream that was the great cause of Senator Kennedy's life.
