A Parting Thought on Jen Flanagan a Democrat Class act

I men­tioned ear­lier this month that GOP can­di­date Dean Tran had won the state sen­ate seat left vacant by Jen Flana­gan but before I leave the sub­ject I’d like to say some­thing about the for­mer State Sen­a­tor now on the Mass­a­chu­setts Cannabis Commission.

I had cov­ered and inter­viewed Sen­a­tor Flana­gan sev­eral times in the past my last had been after the 2014 debate in Leominster

As you might guess while I had lit­tle in com­mon polit­i­cally with Ms. Flana­gan it’s worth not­ing that Flana­gan never shrunk away from those who opposed her polit­i­cally. She was happy to appear at Tea Party forums to engage and make her case to polit­i­cal oppo­nents at a time when Democ­rats and media Nation­wide were demo­niz­ing the Tea Party.

For­tu­nately for the GOP most Democ­rats nation­ally weren’t classy or smart enough to do the same. Which is one of the rea­sons the GOP have a major­ity today.

She was a class act and will do an excel­lent job on the com­mis­sion, I wish her luck.

I mentioned earlier this month that GOP candidate Dean Tran had won the state senate seat left vacant by Jen Flanagan but before I leave the subject I’d like to say something about the former State Senator now on the Massachusetts Cannabis Commission.

I had covered and interviewed Senator Flanagan several times in the past my last had been after the 2014 debate in Leominster

As you might guess while I had little in common politically with Ms. Flanagan it’s worth noting that Flanagan never shrunk away from those who opposed her politically.  She was happy to appear at Tea Party forums to engage and make her case to political opponents at a time when Democrats and media Nationwide were demonizing the Tea Party.

Fortunately for the GOP most Democrats nationally weren’t classy or smart enough to do the same.  Which is one of the reasons the GOP have a majority today.

She was a class act and will do an excellent job on the commission, I wish her luck.
