Wolcott Residents Impact Mass Election


Townspeople are talking about today’s election between Republican Scott Brown, Democrat Martha Coakley and Independent Pat Kennedy to take the seat previously held by Ted Kennedy for over 40 years. The results of the election is expected to have a pivotal impact on national politics, as Democrats currently control 60 votes in the Senate. Because it takes 60 votes to shut down debate on any issue, losing the seat may mean Republicans will have a larger role in framing legislation.

A couple of articles will be in the Whisper soon regarding this election. If you personally have travelled to Massachusetts in the last few weeks, please let me know so you can be included in an article.
