Acton Republican Margaret Busse today announced her candidacy for State Senate representing Middlesex-Worcester District, a seat currently held by the self-styled Progressive incumbent, Jamie Eldridge.
"I have a passion for public service," stated Busse. "It's in my DNA. My proven ability to bring diverse people to the table and forge creative solutions to community problems is just what this district needs. We need to grow our economy in the cooperative and effective governmental climate created by the Baker/Polito Administration."
The Middlesex-Worcester District includes the towns of Acton, Ayer, Boxborough, Harvard, Hudson, Littleton, Maynard, Northborough (Precinct 3), Shirley, Southborough, Stow, Sudbury (Precincts 2 and 3),Westborough, the city of Marlborough, and the community of Devens. The District voted heavily in favor of Baker/Polito in the last gubernatorial election, and the Governor polls extremely strongly in the District today.
"I share a vision with Governor Baker and Lieutenant Governor Polito of a district and a state thriving with more and better jobs, great schools and vibrant communities." emphasized Ms. Busse. "I look forward to a vigorous dialogue to get my positive and collaborative message out. As my slogan says, 'It's About You'".
Margaret Busse is the mother of 5 children and the wife of Franz Busse. The family lives in Acton, where she formerly chaired the Town Finance Committee during her eight years of town service. She holds an MBA from Harvard, a Master’s degree in Public Policy, and a Bachelor’s degree in public policy and in economics from Brigham Young University.
