Imagine ... and make it so

To the editor:

(With apologies to John Lennon) ... Imagine the members our General Court working to address real public issues instead of expending most of their time and energy on re-election.

Imagine the “old boy network” on Beacon Hill being challenged to do the right thing, not just business as usual, by a woman of intelligence and experience from the 1st Essex Senate District.

Imagine a consensus builder and fair-minded problem solver being elected senator on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Kathleen O’Connor-Ives our state senator ... Imagine!

Our votes can make it happen.
