It’s important for Massachusetts voters to be informed about Scott Brown’s voting record, policy positions, and political activities. I will send out an occasional newsletter, “Keeping Tabs on Scott Brown.” The newsletter reports only facts, does not editorialize, and provides links to additional information. Please feel free to forward it to friends, family and other interested people. My hope is that Massachusetts voters will have the facts about Brown so they can make an informed decision during the next election. If you want to contact Brown directly, his phone # is 202 -224-4543. His official website is http://scottbrown.senate.gov/public/ You must type this address into the URL yourself. If you simply click it, you will be directed to a campaign site. On his official site, you must fill out a contact form. No direct e-mail address is given.
If you would like to receive the newsletter directly in your e-mail, send me your e-mail address.
