Richard Tisei is the only candidate in the Massachusetts Sixth District who will “kick-start job creation and bring quality jobs to Massachusetts,” Rob Engstrom, vice president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, told a crowd of Tisei supporters at Wayne Alarm Systems in Lynn.
Engstrom was speaking today at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s event officially endorsing Tisei’s run for Congress.
Rob Engstrom Statement: “Richard has a proven record and a common-sense plan to help get our economy moving again. John Tierney is openly hostile to job creators, and hasn’t made one serious effort in his lackluster 17-year career to help small businesses or create jobs. We need someone like Richard in office with a plan to bring high-quality jobs to Massachusetts and not a rubber stamp for extreme partisan positions like John Tierney.”
Richard Tisei Statement: “Massachusetts needs a representative serious about fixing our economy. Workforce participation is at its lowest point in 35 years, the middle class is shrinking, and the government is too often standing in the way of success. John Tierney’s been in office for 17 years with nearly nothing to show for it. It’s time for a new congressman from the Sixth District, one who will fight for job creators and not rigidly follow the Party line.”
Earlier in the day Richard and Engstrom stopped at Belmont Instrument and learned about the company’s life-saving blood pumps. You can read about their tour in the Lowell Sun: Tisei grabs high-profile endorsement.
