Dear Senator Brown

Remember when you were running for the office you now hold?  You said, “It’s not the Kennedy seat, it’s the people’s seat”  I sure remember it was a great line.

The people of the Commonwealth think that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell should be repealed according to the vast majority of Massachusetts voters in a poll released today.  The poll of 500 registered voters, conducted by your pollster, Neil Newhouse, for the Human Rights Campaign, found that 77 percent of Bay State voters supports repeal.  Meanwhile, it found that 62 percent of voters who backed you in the January special election support overturning the current law, as do 67 percent of registered independents who voted for you.

Maybe it is time you change your line to “it is not the Republican obstructionist seat it is the people’s seat.”  Or “it is not Scott Brown’s seat but it is the people’s seat.”  Either will work and you will be doing your job representing the people of Massachusetts.

If you vote against the repeal and the people of Massachusetts I will make sure everyone remembers that you do not represent the majority of people in the Commonwealth in 2012.

Please do the right thing and vote to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

Thank You,

Boston Bravery

Everyone in Massachusetts should send Senator Brown a letter, email or give him a call reminding him that he got elected to represent the people of Massachusetts and not the Republican Party.

Send him a message here.

You can snail mail him at either office: 2400 JFK Federal Building, Boston, MA  02203 or 317 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington D.C.  20510.

Finally the quickest way to let him know how you feel about not representing the people of the commonwealth give him a call at 617.565.3170 or 202.224.4543.
