Mirra claims 2nd Essex seat

Republican to succeed Stanley on Beacon Hill

(Continued)

Mirra said the rating was based on incomplete data and was later updated to give Mirra Co. a satisfactory rating. He said Fogel knew that before he disseminated the mailer, and that he did so because it was too close to election day for Mirra to be able to adequately respond.

Fogel defended the mailer by saying he asked Mirra for documented evidence that the federal agency’s rating had been updated like he claimed, but never heard back from him. Mirra has released a company profile indicating that Mirra Co. currently has a satisfactory rating from the FMCSA, but so far, no reports specifically dealing with 2010 have been released.

It’s unclear at this point whether the mailer controversy had any impact on the election results.

Regardless, Mirra said he is looking forward to the next stage of his political career.

“I look forward to being the people’s servant,” Mirra said. “I work for the voters and I work for the entire district.”
