7 thoughts on “LETTER: Watertown State Rep. Endorses Candidate for District A Councilor

  1. I would like for Steve Owens to define “progressive values” and “progressive partner.” What does this mean and how is it good for Watertown?

    • Did you even read his letter? His reasons for supporting her are well documented here. Sounds like you just don’t like his choice.

      • I read the letter. I just want to know what “progressive values” and “progressive partner” mean. Terms are thrown around and I’d like clarity. Steve Owens is free to support whomever he wants for town office as is ever other citizen in town.

  2. The word equity doesn’t necessarily mean equality in today’s terms. The Progressives use this term incessantly. Mike Hanlon has important credentials to consider and he doesn’t use that term in his flyers. He stresses his dedication to the town by serving in various key positions at the Watertown Library and he has worked in his professional career for the state of Massachusetts. He understands legislative affairs and has an MA and BA degree in Government. People should look at him for serious consideration as he understands how government works to get things done.

    • I’m trying to understand why equity has become such a problem. While the terms equity and equality may seem similar, they are indeed quite different. Equality means that everyone is treated the same exact way, regardless of their needs or differences Equity, on means everyone is provided with what they need to succeed. I’m not sure why this is a bad thing?
