Murray Misleads Voters on Wind Turbine Problem
Murray Still Making Job Recommendations Despite Probation Department Indictments
Sandwich, MA—Today Tom Keyes, Republican candidate for State Senate in the Plymouth & Barnstable District, criticized Senator Murray for not being truthful in her answer on residential wind turbines and for admitting she is still making state job recommendations.
“I could not believe her answer on the residential wind turbine issue. She tried to sneak through the legislation the Wind Energy Siting Reform Act which would have taken away local control. Now she is pretending that she is for local control. Clearly she was trying to mislead voters by not telling the whole story. Honesty has never been her policy,” said Keyes. “These wind turbines in residential areas have ruined people’s lives. Senator Murray cannot be trusted on this issue. If it wasn’t for Republicans watching her during informal sessions she would have snuck in that bill killing local control and more people would be having their lives ruined.”
Keyes comments are in response to tonight’s WATD debate between Senator Murray and her Democrat Primary challenger.
Murray was also questioned about making job recommendations for her constituents. Despite the Probation Department Indictments over patronage, she admitted to still making job recommendations. Public safety jobs were given to unqualified people due to their political connections.
“The system will never change with her in office. She has not learned her lesson,” said Keyes. “The better question would be is she still making job recommendations for friends or has she testified in front of the Grand Jury.”
Murray was also questioned on whether we are done hearing her name connected to the Probation department indictments. She does not know.
“Sounds like there is more to come that she has not fully disclosed,” added Keyes.
Keyes, 45, has served on the Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates and as a Sandwich Selectman. He has also served on numerous boards and committees including: Water Quality Review Committee, Sandwich Economic Development Committee as liaison of the Board of Selectmen , Cemetery Commission, Assembly of Delegates Standing Committee on Economic Affairs, the 21st Century Taskforce to review the Cape Cod Commission and draft operational changes to the County Commissioners, President of the Cape Cod Selectmen and Councilors’ Association and Board of Directors, and member of the Massachusetts Municipal Association’s Selectmen and Councilors’ Association.
Keyes founded his private practice, Keyes Quality Systems in 1998, providing consulting and contract services in management, ethics and compliance. He and his wife, Melissa have two daughters, Madelynn, and Julia. For more information on Tom’s candidacy, voters can visit his website www.VoteKeyes.com
