The Republican – Letters to the Editor: Ed Markey’s a candidate people can trust

One thing is certain as one assesses the mood among thoughtful Americans in this time of government dysfunction: there exists in the country a great yearning – an almost palpable longing and expectation – for honesty in politics.

The country has had it with deceptive, snarkey, finger-in-our-eye political ads and tactics. It wants legislators with truth in their mouths and courage in their hearts.

That’s why Ed Markey is so appealing. He’s running in the April 30 Democratic Primary against Stephen Lynch.

Ed is above all, honest. down-to-earth.

He’s also a straight talker, a wise listener, an open-minded Massachusetts congressman with long experience of dealing with national and state issues.
