Dykema, Lamb Tout Debate Performances

The Eighth Middlesex District state representative candidates debated in Hopkinton on Monday night.

Both candidates for Eighth Middlesex District state representative are touting their performances during their debate Monday night in Hopkinton.

In campaign press releases this week, incumbent Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston) and challenger Marty Lamb (R-Holliston) defended their positions on a wide range of issues, from the economy to bi-partisanship.

"Lamb had more specifics when it came to education, controlling state spending, and reviving the economy," Lamb's campaign said.

Meanwhile, Dykema "credited her common sense approach to taxes and fiscal reform to her business education and decades of experience working in small and large local companies," her campaign said.

Dykema and Lamb fielded questions Monday night from Michelle Murdock of the Hopkinton Independent and Tom Moroney of Bloomberg News. The Hopkinton Independent and Hopkinton Cable Access Television sponsored the debate, which was moderated by Chuck Joseph. The debate can be viewed on Hopkinton Cable Access Television's website.

The Eighth Middlesex District includes Holliston, Hopkinton, precinct 1 in Medway, precincts 2 and 3 in Southborough, and precinct 2 in Westborough.

Unfortunately, any Democrat's "common sense approach" is tainted by their forced allegiance to the Speaker. When you vote over 95% of the time with the Speaker of the House as Rep. Dykema has, in order to get along with the powerful people in her party, our "common sense" needs are not being addressed! We need balance on Beacon Hill and more voices asking for daylight to all votes to restore our government to the people! Vote for Marty Lamb!
