A letter from Chairman Phil Johnston
Tuesday will be among the most important days in the long history of our state. For if we do our final work over the next 48 hours, we will elect the first Democratic Governor and Lieutenant Governor since 1986. This coming January, Deval Patrick and Tim Murray will restore an administration which truly cares about the interests of every citizen in Massachusetts . As Deval has said so many times during this campaign, his will be an administration which welcomes everyone with good, new ideas, regardless of political party. He and Tim understand that this campaign is only a means to an end; the end is to provide hope to every citizen in our state.
When I was just starting out in politics, I worked in Robert F. Kennedy's presidential campaign. I found his campaign to be incredibly inspiring; the memory of Robert Kennedy and his passion for racial, economic and social justice has stayed with me to this day. I must say that Deval Patrick reminds me of RFK in many ways. He brings the same high ideals and sense of commitment to building a more decent and more just society to politics. I believe that his campaign represents a truly revolutionary moment in our state. It is important that we seize this moment. We need your help to make sure that Deval not only wins on Tuesday but that he receives a strong mandate from the voters so that he can govern successfully over the next four years. We are on the precipice of a great victory for our people--let's bring it home! Thank you for all you have done to make this possible.
