Letter: Lynch works for constituents, not lobbyists

To the editor:

Congressman Lynch strapped on boots every morning and opened his college books at night.

When I worked in the State House, Congressman Lynch was a newly minted state representative. Yet, almost 20 years ago, he impressed me with the passion and dedication he showed to his constituents. He felt it was an honor to serve them and always went the extra mile to find solutions to their problems. He never lost that drive. As a Congressman, he is in Massachusetts every week because he wants to be available to his constituents. He cares about them.

Despite what is being said during the campaign, congressional records show that Lynch and Congressman Markey vote 90 percent and 91 percent of the time, respectively, with their party. However, before Congressman Lynch takes his votes he reads the legislation and researches what its impact will be on the people he represents.

He will tell you he is not popular with the lobbyists, but that is because his focus and his heart is with the people.

Recently, a little girl who is living in a housing project, after seeing Stephen’s advertisement told her father, “I am Steve Lynch and I am going to college.” Stephen is the kind of person who inspires people

If you want your interests represented by a thoughtful, dedicated person who truly cares, please join me next Tuesday, April 30, in voting for Stephen Lynch.
