Brenton: Martinez Best Candidate to Improve Economic Outlook
Chelmsford, MA – Today Sandi Martinez, Republican candidate for State Senate in the Third Middlesex district, announced that former State Representative Marianne Brenton has endorsed her candidacy.
“Having served on Beacon Hill, I know what it takes to fight for reform and change. Sandi Martinez will be the independent voice for the district. She will use her business experience to help improve our economic climate,” said Benton. “I am proud to endorse Sandi for State Senate. We need her determination and leadership in the Senate.”
“Marianne is well respected. Her endorsement is a huge boost to the campaign. It shows voters that we have both the momentum and the message to win,” said Martinez.
Rep. Brenton served the towns of Bedford, Burlington and part of Wilmington. She held office six years until she retired in 1997. During her tenure in office Brenton earned a reputation as a fiscal watchdog and fighter for her district. Martinez hopes to follow in her footsteps.
“Sandi is also a woman of great integrity which is so desperately needed in the Senate. She will work to create more transparency in the process,” added Brenton.
Like Brenton, Martinez is a proud signer of the No New Taxes pledge.
