Mack Urges Mass. Secretary Of State To Quickly Certify Brown Election Results
Congressman Connie Mack (FL-14) and Reps. Jeff Miller (FL-01), Tom Price (GA-06), and Mary Bono Mack (CA-45) today sent a letter to the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, William Galvin, urging him to certify the results of yesterday's special Senate election without delay or political games so Senator-elect Scott Brown can be sworn in.
"Last night, the people of Massachusetts cast a strong vote against the Democratic Leadership's liberal agenda and in support of the ideals of freedom and free markets. Scott Brown's victory proves that the American people reject a government takeover of health care and oppose higher taxes, more spending, and bigger government.
"The people of Massachusetts have spoken. They deserve to have their duly-elected Senator sworn into office as soon as possible, and we urge the Secretary of the Commonwealth to certify this election quickly and without partisan political games."
The text of Mack's letter is below:
Dear Secretary Galvin:
Tonight, the voters of Massachusetts spoke for all of America when they cast a resounding vote against a government takeover of health care and in support of preserving freedom and individual liberty.
The election of Senator-elect Scott Brown has been heard throughout the nation. The people of Massachusetts--like all of us across the United States--deserve health care that preserves the doctor-patient relationship, will not raise taxes on hardworking Americans, and keeps bureaucrats and politicians from determining the quality of our care.
As the Secretary of the Commonwealth and Massachusetts' top election official, it is now your obligation to certify this election without delay. Do not politicize, undermine, or cheapen this historic moment.
The people of Massachusetts deserve to have their duly-elected Senatorial representation in place as soon as possible. For the sake of the Commonwealth and our nation, please put special-interest politics aside and heed the voice of the public. Nothing less is acceptable.
Congressman Connie Mack (FL-14)
Congressman Jeff Miller (FL-01)
Congressman Tom Price (GA-06)
Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack (CA-45)
