VIDEO: Senate Hopeful Tom Conroy Visits Burlington

Middlesex's District 13 State Representative makes a push for the U.S. Senate.

Tom Conroy, Democratic Massachusetts State Representative for Middlesex's District 13 and U.S. Senate hopeful made a stop at Burlington's last Friday. 

Conroy is looking to challenge Massachusetts Republican Senator Scott Brown in 2012. He visited Burlington as part of a state-wide walking tour to meet voters. 

Conroy has been a state representative since 2007. Prior to that position he worked in Washington on the Reagan military budget, then worked with Senator Gary Hart, D-Colorado, and served as a foreign policy and national security assistant for Senator Barbara Mikulski, D-Maryland.

Conroy also worked in Thailand where he managed a refugee resettlement program for Vietnamese, Lao, Cambodian and Burmese fleeing persecution in their home countries. From 1995 to 2011, Conroy has worked in the private sector in Massachusetts.

Anyone that worked with Sen. Barbara Mikulsi, is OFF my list. Let's leave Scott Brown right where he is. He's a moderate. We don't need any more die-hards representing us.

@ J Parker - eliminating somebody for who he worked with is a little harsh. He also worked on the Reagan military budget. All that aside, if you check his voting record, you'll see that Scott Brown is by no means a "moderate" or an Independent as he'd like you to believe. He's voted in lockstep with the die-hard Republicans.

Harsh, Sylvia? I have my opinion and you have yours. No one has to persuade me of what they'd 'like' me to believe. However, I expected this kind of comment.... 56% of the MA voters believe he has kept his promise...How about "the Jobs Bill"? If you read all that was in the bills that were voted against, and you weren't so liberal, you'd have voted against them as well....Like Sen. Lieberman did.
