Swift Endorses Gunn For Congress

Gunn Campaign

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Former governor and Williamstown resident Jane Swift has endorsed Republican candidate Bill Gunn for the 1st Massachusetts District.

Gunn, a 48-year-old Ware roofing contractor, is hoping to oust Democrat John W. Olver in November. He's a registered Republican running on tea party principles, including repealing the federal health-care reform bill and limited government.

In her letter, Swift, who ran unsuccessfully against Olver in 1996, explained her reasons for endorsing Gunn. 

To my friends in the Massachusetts first congressional district:

I am proud to endorse Bill Gunn in his run to become your representative in the United States Congress.  As our economy continues to sputter and government spending grows, we need a fiscal conservative in Congress more than ever before.

Just as all families must tighten their belts in tough times, we expect our elected representatives to spend our hard earned tax dollars wisely.  Bill Gunn will be a solid vote for common sense fiscal policies.

As our small businesses try to weather the economic storm, Bill Gunn understands the need to limit regulation and lower taxes.

Bill Gunn has my vote for Congress and I hope you will consider giving him yours as well on November 2nd.

Jane Swift
