Dear Rep William Brownsberger,
This is to express my support for the draft legislation under consideration to empower Governor Patrick with the authority to appoint an interim senator for Senator Kennedy’s seat. It is very important for our state to be fully represented until election is held, specially at this time of furious fight in the US Congress over the issue of quality affordable health care insurance and other crucial changes that were some of the core reasons for the election of President Obama. That seat our great Senator, Ed Kennedy wished to be filled immediately after his death should not be left vacant. I believe you, our representatives have the solemn obligation to pave the way for the implementation of the constitutional right of our state to be represented in the senate by supporting the enabling legislation. I would therefore urge you to empower Governor Patrick appoint an interim senator.
