BLOG: Representative Claire Cronin and her voting record.

Know who your State Representative is really representing.

I would like to let the resident taxpayers of Easton know that newly elected State Representative Claire Cronin sides with the establishment (Speaker) on "Bacon Hill" and not with the taxpayers. Her recent vote against EBT reform in the latest in what is becoming a string of anti taxpayer votes. Along with her blatant disregard for EBT reform, she has also:

Voted against having the budget in print for 24 hours before the final vote.

Voted against stopping consolidating budget amendments.

Voted against stricter ethics regulations.

Know who your representative is really representing!

Some may think I do not understand how things work on "Bacon" Hill. The trouble is that statement is that I do understand just how things work and that makes me dangerous to the insiders and wannabe's. I have nothing personal against representative Cronin, but she must understand that until such time comes that she stops being a team player for the House Speaker and starts representing the tax paying public of her district, I will be here to shine light on her or any other politician in the districts voting record. Should Representative Cronin or any other politician of the district wish to have a discussion with me on local access television, I will be happy to accommodate all takers. I am not here to attack individual politicians, but rather to hold them accountable to the taxpayers. I have no party association, so everyone is on equal ground and nobody is off limits.

On out upcoming telecast, I will be interviewing Representative Shaunna O'Connell who represents part of Easton along with parts of Taunton. Representative O'Connell does have an excellent voting record (check it out here) http://www.malegislature.gov/People/Profile/SLO1 and I will be having a discussion with her about EBT abuses and other topics concerning the district.

Good luck with your interview, please let her know we want to take care of the people that actually need welfare and ebt cards, the elderly, handicapped and the familys that are in trouble, the problem lies with the lay abouts and the 40% that are actually abusing the system, the elected officials know who they are, that is the question , how do we get them off the dole ,remember give a mouse a cookie, and they want the milk next, good luck
