About 250 people showed up to help Senator Terry Murray kick off her re-election campaign at Plimoth Plantation last Friday night.
The crowd interrupted the Senate President many times during her message concerning positive developments in the state:
“And the message is that we’re doing better than almost every other state in the nation. Our economy is better. We have an educated work force that the rest of the country can’t compare to. Our kids are number one in science and math in the entire country—and tied with China and Taiwan in the world.”
But Murray says she has more work to do and her focus is on jobs:
“There are people who need jobs, they’re unemployed and that’s what I’m concentrating my time on.”
Murray won overwhelming support from her Senate colleagues early last year when she was re-elected Senate President. And, she survived a close call in the 2010 election from Sandwich Republican Tom Keyes, who will again challenge her to represent the Plymouth & Barnstable District.
