MassLive: The Republican Editorials: Written by Jeff McCormick
The future of Massachusetts is bright and we have weathered the storm of the Great Recession. We are a leader in energy efficiency, education, biotech, and innovation. But I know we can do better for all of our citizens. I am running for Governor as an independent to solve the problems that the Commonwealth faces, grow jobs, and make the best decisions for the people.
I came to Boston almost 27 years ago with $800 in my pocket, a college degree, and a desire to work hard to be successful. I started a business, met my wife, started a family, and I have been lucky enough to live my version of the American Dream.
Throughout my career, I have worked with early stage companies to create jobs and solve problems. I was involved in very early stages of the Boson Duck Tours, Constant Contact, and the bio-diesel company Twin Rivers in Quincy. I am proud of my record in the private sector of creating jobs in energy, biotech, and education. I want to bring my skill set to Beacon Hill to help the hardworking families of Massachusetts who, for too long, have not had enough of a voice in state government.

As some media outlets across Massachusetts continue to snub the independent candidates running to be the next governor, Jeff McCormick is taking his message straight to the voters with a new TV ad.
The 30-second spot was purchased state-wide, according to McCormick's campaign, and includes more than 40 placements at a cost of roughly $80,000.
The ad opens with a narrator saying "Two political insiders. Two career politicians beholden to special interests," as an image of Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is shown.
It then turns to focus on McCormick, highlighting his experience in the private sector and the fact that he's not associated with either major political party.
