A healthy, bi-partisan government has checks and balances that counteract tendencies for those in power to lead in corrupt and oppressive ways. With only 18% of our legislature Republican, the Massachusetts government puts citizen’s freedoms in jeopardy. Like a business monopoly, we don’t want or need a government too big, powerful, and self-serving.
Unfortunately, there has been a lack of leadership within the Republican Party as evidenced by the low number of Republicans within the State Legislature. There are only 32 out of 160 State Representatives. Recent vacancies bring the number of State Senators to a paltry 4 out of 40 who are Republican.
With the recent election of Jim Lyons as the new Massachusetts Republican Party Chair and the reorganization of the Party, we have a tremendous opportunity for renewal. Our vision includes standing for freedom, individual responsibility, the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and rule of law. We wish to live freely and peaceably while not infringing upon the rights of others.
I am running for Republican State Committeewoman because I would like to bring guidance, training, communication, and resources to help the Party grow and increase its ability to recruit and elect quality candidates. I will support efforts to increase transparency, participation, and effectiveness.
If you live in Westford, Pepperell, Tyngsborough, Lowell, Groton, or Dunstable, I humbly ask you to select the Republican ballot for the Presidential Primary on March 3rd, 2020 and vote for Republican State Committeewoman, Kathy Lynch.
