“Government works best when it is open to everyone”

  WAKEFIELD – State Senate Candidate/current Wakefield Town Councilor Ed Dombroski recently called for increased transparency from his opponent, State Senator Jason Lewis, ahead of the November 8 election to represent Malden, Melrose, Reading, Stoneham, Wakefield and Winchester in the Massachusetts Senate.

  “Senator Lewis has made clear he has no interest in speaking to the voters in additional debates that the residents of this district deserve,” said Dombroski, referring to Senator Lewis’ refusal to participate in a debate organized by the League of Women Voters of Winchester and Senator Lewis’ statement that he would only participate in one debate. That debate took place on October 17 in Wakefield.

  “While Senator Lewis may not want to show up and defend his record, fortunately for the voters his voting history is public,” said Dombroski. “Jason Lewis has voted against legislation that would have created greater access to public participation in remotely conducted hearings, a rule that would have prohibited sneaking through new taxes in informal sessions, and against requiring additional public hearings around the state for bills that create new taxes.”

  “Government works best when it is open to everyone,” said Dombroski. “Senator Lewis has consistently voted to make government less accessible and more secretive.”

  Dombroski pointed to additional votes where Lewis “voted against increasing the time to review the budget before voting on it, voted against requiring bills to be public for 72-hours before the Senate votes on them, and even voting against requiring a 30-minutes recess that would allow Senators to review new matters.”

  Dombroski’s campaign has added additional material to the campaign website allowing voters to better understand where he stands on issues, especially in light of Senator Lewis not agreeing to any further debates. Dombroski has expressed a desire to talk more in-depth about the issues in additional debates in the district. “If Senator Lewis changes his mind and wants to be transparent and defend his record in future debates, I will be there. I will always show up and offer transparency and answers to residents,” said Dombroski.

  Dombroski is an attorney and small business owner and has served on the Wakefield Town Council for six years. He is endorsed by Governor Charlie Baker. More information can be found at www.EdForMA.com.
