Berkshire Eagle: Our opinion: Markey is a quietly effective force for state
“…Mr. Markey has been the same steady workhorse he was during his long tenure in the House of Representatives. Over the years he has built up expertise in a variety of areas, among them telecommunications, the environment and the energy industry, which makes him valuable in a Washington, D.C. that is long on blowhards and short on elected officials who actually know of what they speak.
Mr. Markey continues to be a consistent progressive advocate of programs that benefit the poor, middle class, the elderly and students. He has long been a voice against misguided military adventures abroad, countering those who learn nothing from history, recent and past.”
