ABOUT LIVING IN THE DISTRICT
The question has arisen several times and here is the answer. For most of my career an actuary and for most of my life I had lived in the 5th District. In 1984 when I first ran for Congress I was living about a mile in inside the district. However in the 1990's when the Massachusetts House did their re-districting suddenly I was outside the district by 2 miles. I didn't leave the district, the district left me. Most of my friends and family live inside the 5th District so I have always been in touch with what's been going on. Irregardless of whether I win or loose the September 4th Primary I will be moving back into the 5th district. My heart has always been in the 5th District.
