OP-ED: Congressional Candidate Hudak Calls Redistricting "Great News"

Candidate cites strong GOP results recently in The Merrimack Valley.

(Editor's note: The following information was submitted by the Congresional Candidates Bill Hudak.)

Bill Hudak, www.hudakforcongress.com, candidate for U.S. Congress in the Massachusetts 6th Congressional District, today commented on the new Congressional District map released this week.  “We’re thrilled that after months of delay the redistricting committee has not only recommended maintaining the District intact, but added three towns consistent with the conservative nature of the North Shore area,” Hudak said.

Under the plan, the 6th District retains the same 36 Cities and Towns which have comprised the District since 2002, but adds Tewksbury, Billerica and part of the town of Andover.  “This is great news for the North Shore, both because the unity of the District has survived redistricting, and because the added towns will fit perfectly with the character of the region.” he commented.

Hudak formally announced in March, 2011 that he would continue his quest to unseat John Tierney in 2012, and has been working steadily during the year to continue his campaign.  “These three new towns offer a great opportunity for us to pick up the remaining votes we need to win in 2012 because they all trend Republican,” Hudak said.

Hudak added that “Scott Brown carried Andover (58%), Tewksbury (65%), and Billerica (60%).  And Charlie Baker beat Deval Patrick in Andover (56% to 44%), Billerica (62% to 38%), and Tewksbury (64% to 36%).  We couldn’t ask for a much better ‘new’ draw for our continuing campaign against John Tierney.”

“In addition, having these great towns added to the District gives a fresh opportunity to reach a pool of voters never before experiencing what it is like to be represented by John Tierney.  It would be hard to imagine that with John Tierney’s family currently on trial for tax fraud that these 70,000 voters new to the 6th district would ever embrace him as their representative in Congress,” Hudak concluded.
