An open Letter about Jim McKenna

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Dear Friend:

Election Day is tomorrow. I believe that Jim McKenna is the best candidate for Attorney General. He is running against Martha Coakley. I am asking you to vote for Jim tomorrow.

Who is Jim McKenna?

Jim worked as a prosecutor for 10 years, gaining perspective and experience by serving in three different offices. He prosecuted public corruption and organized crime in Boston for three years while serving as an Assistant District Attorney in the Organized Crime Division of the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office. Jim also worked for six years as an ADA in the Worcester County District Attorney’s office. Jim has been in private practice since 1998, and has taught college courses on law and ethics as an adjunct assistant professor.

Restoring Trust in Government

The Beacon Hill Boys & Girls Club is a free-for-all where the special interests run the show and corruption is the norm. These crimes against the people are damaging and bankrupting our state. They can be stopped. Jim McKenna will prosecute and clean up this mess, and I won’t let my hands get tied in this effort to make government trustworthy.

Putting Enforcement Back in Law Enforcement

We have laws in place, but our Attorney General fails to enforce them because she says that, “technically it is not illegal to be illegal.”  Jim McKenna wants to be our Commonwealth’s Chief Law Enforcement Officer, and I know that he is going to put the enforcement back in law enforcement.  His agenda is simple: to serve and protect the people of Massachusetts.

Illegal Immigration

Immigrants from all over the world who followed our laws in applying for immigration founded our nation. Illegal immigration is a problem, which the Federal government continues to ignore. Illegal immigrants are here because they violated our laws from the moment they stepped foot in our country illegally.  Illegal immigration is illegal.

In Massachusetts, we have the ability to stop illegal immigration with a series of simple steps. Jim McKenna will advocate for:

  • Mandatory proof of citizenship when anyone is arraigned before a court.
  • Require proof of for any government assistance.
  • Removing all economic incentives for illegal immigration in our state.  There should be no jobs for illegal immigrants and the state should go after any employers who hire illegals.

Consumer Protection

One of the most important jobs of the Attorney General is the protection of Massachusetts consumers. Consumer protection is a two-fold mission – empowering and equipping individuals with the information and tools to protect themselves against fraud and prosecuting the criminals who hurt our citizens. Jim McKenna will be tough and impartial and not back down.

We need an Attorney General who will correctly prioritize its resources. We need an Attorney General with the courage to go after government corruption, illegal immigration, financial fraud, Internet scams, civil rights violations, deceptive corporate practices and consumer protection issues. We need Jim McKenna.

Please join me in supporting JIM McKENNA tomorrow, Tuesday, November 2 for Attorney General.

Incumbent democrat AG Martha Coakley is running against the Ghost of Scott Brown

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Todd Domke:

On Primary Day, Jim McKenna pulled off one of the most surprising feats in Massachusetts politics as he received well over the 10,000 write-in votes needed to win the GOP nomination for attorney general. He’s now challenging Martha Coakley, the Democratic incumbent. … McKenna is a serious candidate. A former prosecutor, he says he’ll focus mostly on three issues: public trust in the Attorney General’s Office, illegal immigration and public corruption.

On a personal note, Jim McKenna was the professor of my graduate Business Law and Ethics course. He is very smart, very knowledgeable of the law, and, unlike many “professional politicians”, quite ethical.

Jim McKenna has more than my vote in November, he has my active support.

Stop by and see for yourself.
