Caroline Colarusso announces candidacy for US Congress

Stoneham, MA – Caroline Colarusso, Republican candidate for Congress, will send a mirror to Congresswoman Katherine Clark to help her find the culprit for soaring gas prices.

“For the last year and a half the price of gas has been steadily increasing. It started on day one of the Biden presidency and long before Putin invaded Ukraine. After Biden was sworn in, he stopped the Keystone Pipeline, he re-entered the Paris Climate Accord, he halted leasing programs in ANWR, he issued a 60-day halt on all new oil and gas leases and drilling permits on federal land and waters nationwide accounting for 25% of US oil production. Biden also directed federal agencies to eliminate all support for fossil fuels, and he also initiated new regulations on oil and gas methane emissions.

“These actions reversed our nation’s energy independence policies. Clark went along with Biden every step of the way. She even praised him. Now that we are less than 6 months away from the election and gas is headed towards $6 per gallon, she is going after oil companies for price gouging. It is an election year CYA move. So, I’ll send her a mirror to help her find the real culprit for gas prices increasing,” said Colarusso.

Clark voted to pass phony legislation to crack down on price gouging by major gas companies. The so-called Oil and Gas Industry Antitrust Act would require the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate price manipulation in the gasoline market, including refinery capacity reductions and market monopoly conditions.

“Clearly, she thinks the people of this district are stupid. It’s not price gouging. It is bad policy. She should apologize and not pass legislation that will probably make gas even more unaffordable,” said Colarusso. “If people don’t like the price of gas, then they should vote her out of office.” Colarusso will challenge Congresswoman Katherine Clark in November. Colarusso recently qualified for the ballot by collecting over 5,000 raw signatures in 28 days; 4003 signatures were certified by the Secretary of State.
