Massachusetts politicians seldom worry about being held accountable by the voters because we live in a one-party state in which more than two-thirds of incumbents run unopposed for reelection. MA ranks 50th -- dead last -- in the number of contested elections. Only YOU can change that by stepping up to challenge your unresponsive elected officials.
Consider running for office, or helping us to find good candidates. If you would like to propose a potential candidate or electoral opportunity, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com (moderator will need to approve the message).
Working together, we can put Massachusetts on the road to a healthy, prosperous future.
