Tremors Open Thread

OK, anyone feel that? I did.

Did the earth move for you? I was at my fridge (yeah, my initial reaction was get the hell away from it!). Of course, it seemed minor, but what did you experience? Freaked my dogs right the heck out.

Update: USGS is saying it was a 4.5 4.0 magnitude, 6km SSW of Lake Arrowhead, Maine.

Martin Burke Joins The Noble Fray

If you are considering a protest vote, since Dave Nangle became the 2nd Dem (out of 128) state rep to endorse Scott Brown or maybe you have a “vote the bums out” sorta attitude, read on:

I’m the Martin Burke who is running against David. I’m a fiscal conservative and a social liberal.

We need to promote, encourage and enforce fairness and integrity in our system and our state. In order to be fair, accountability has to happen. This will ensure sustainability of worthy programming and the equitable distribution of funds to those who need them. There must be an end to the exploitation of programming.

Protecting our freedoms and personal rights is essential to democracy. These beliefs easily allow me to take Pro-Choice and Pro-Civil Union positions.

Professionally, I am a Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser. I own and operate a successful business on Merrimack Street in Downtown Lowell, servicing many local attorneys and most of our local lenders.

My commitment to the community has led me to be on the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lowell, a Big Brother with Big Brother/Big Sister of Greater Lowell, a supporter of the Merrimack Valley Food Bank and Camp Paul/The Paul Center for Learning in Chelmsford, where my wife has worked for 15 years.

Any questions or concerns, please contact me directly. (978)758-9793 or MBurke@PriorityAppraisals.org

Thank you,
Martin Burke

If the Seventeenth Middlesex is going to have a Republican rep, why not elect the real Republican instead of the fake Democrat?

Is it time for Democrats for Martin Burke?

Crossing party lines is hard for some. I know folks that WILL NOT do it. Burke is, dare I say, a moderate. A rare bird, not so much here in Mass, but in the larger context of the “post-tea party” GOP. If Unenrolleds and less staunch Dems gave him a vote, it could send a message to both “status quo” Dems, and extreme, “movement” Republicans.

Votes are sacred. What message do YOU want to send to Beacon Hill?
