These criticisms are necessary from a camp that cannot match qualifications.
So, we can continue a trend of electing attractive, unqualified politicians who tell you what you want to hear, or we can use this GRAND OPPORTUNITY to actually fill a position with the most qualified candidate...
Foley Nov 2
As someone stated earlier, nobody is questioning if it was a retirement pension. This is not, he is getting 72% of his highest three years tax free because he is too disabled to run the State Police, but now he can run the Sheriff's Office, while still being too disabled to run the State Police. If this was a straight Retirement Pension, I wouldn't have an issue, but he left the State Police not able to do a desk job, but now he is cleared to run the Sheriff's Office while still receiving the Disability Pension.

Its upsetting. There are so many uneducated people out there who are going to vote another politician into a non political office. All you need to do is ask either Lew or Foley, should they win, where they see themselves in 7 years. I'm betting you wont get an answer.

If the Foley wins the election he will be making more than the Vice President of the United States!!!

That sounds real good..

Foley is a politician.....he was elected to the governors council. I guess his supporters want to hide that little fact as well.

O brother! This is not just an issue for the county of Worcester. What a joke this state would be if he wins. Foley is the epitome of pension abuse.

I'm voting for Lew Evangelidis!!! and how!!

Tell us Clueless voter, is "Lew" going to file a lawsuit against the newspaper for calling him a "Coke head"?, by the time it winds its way through the court system it could take years.

Between this and the fact he has zero qualifications for the job, he should just pull the plug.

The I team is on the story now, this is worth watching.

Why would we want to pay "Lew" 50k more a year than Foley? It's crazy to pay "Silly Lew" more.

Foley is not a politician, he never ran for public office. The governors council is an "appointed" position

Why would we want to pay Evangelidis $50000.00 more per year or $300000.00 for the full term than Foley? It makes no sense, Lew isn't even close to being qualified.

As stated above Lews three spin ideas can't be done or are already being done. He's all spin and no substance, aside from the hits he's taking in the press he's simply not qualified and will be in way, way over his head.

I correct myself on this one, sort off. The governors council only offers advice to the governor in matters such as appointing judges, pardons. They are 2 year terms and Lt. Gov is the Chairman of the council. The point I was trying to make is that Foley is not even close to the politician that Lew is. Lew talks alot but doesn't say anything, now that is a politician.

Lew is cannot be an Independent! He is a REPUBLICAN. Nothing wrong with that, but he is clearly not an Independent. If he were, he would be unenrolled.

Lew is playing the field just like Glodis, raising lots of money and spending lots of money. Littering the County with his signs. Some of his bozos are even placing them in on private property without permission... just sticking them where they want.

Lew is endorsed by Scott Brown - R. Scott Brown took a special guest part in a high priced fundraiser for Lew. He has spent more money than any of the Congressional candidates have raised.

Four Republican Sheriffs hosted a fundraiser for Lew. Lew is tied strongly to many other Republicans. Tell me, how is he Independent?

Have you seen his new Campaign Haedquarters? Does it look familiar? It was Scot Bove's!! Another back door deal.

Lew and wheeling and dealing. He need the deals and needs the money because he needs to pay for his seat because if he doesn't get elected, he's out of a job.

He Independent? Not a chance!
