Webster Republicans Endorse
Tom Wesley for U.S. Congress in Second District

WEBSTER—The Webster Republican Town Committee (RTC) today officially announced its endorsement of Tom Wesley, candidate for U.S. Congress in Massachusetts’ Second District. Webster RTC Chairman Jennifer Tonelli said the following:

“Massachusetts needs Tom Wesley in Congress right now. With the ongoing military conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, the fanning of flames between North and South Korea, and the continuing tensions in Israel, we need a congressman who has real-world experience in global preparedness and conflict.

“In addition to being a Navy veteran, Tom Wesley has witnessed firsthand the shortcomings of the social welfare state with the extensive time he has spent in Europe. President Obama has shown some precarious inclinations in this area, making this type of expertise critical in upcoming policy debates.

“On the flip side, you have our current congressman. Richard Neal is too busy in DC and Springfield to remember the people in Central Massachusetts. We have never seen Richard Neal in our town parades or celebrations. In fact, many people around here refer to him as ‘the ghost.’

“Far from a one-issue candidate, Tom Wesley brings a wide base of knowledge on issues as diverse as military preparedness, small and large business management, and high education standards. Tom Wesley is smart. Tom Wesley is electable. Tom Wesley is our future."

Tom Wesley responded to the endorsement:

“With some of our global rivals writing America’s obituary as a world superpower, we need strong leaders with the ideas and the understanding to counter our downward drift. The members of the Webster RTC appreciate this need. I pledge to always work to keep Americans safe, and never vote to put American soldiers into harms way unless it’s absolutely necessary. The peoples of the world share the same hopes of peace, security and prosperity in their lives as Americans, and we should consistently be striving to make that a reality.”

In addition to the Webster Republican Town Committee, Tom Wesley has been endorsement the Springfield Republican City Committee, the Douglas Republican Town Committee, the Hopedale Republican Committee and the Wales Republican Town Committee. He also received nomination signatures from each of the 41 cities and towns in the Second District.
