MassGOP Presents "Bad News Brady"

BOSTON -- Today, the MassGOP launches "Bad News Brady," a regular chronicle of the critical budget priorities that Rep. Mike Brady voted to kill earlier this year. In July, Brady took an extreme, hyperpartisan vote against the FY-2016 state budget because he stubbornly sided with special interests opposed to common-sense, bipartisan MBTA reforms. Brady was the only Representative to take the fringe position opposing the entire budget - and the people of his district - because he sided with the special interests.

The bipartisan state budget Brady voted against included upgrades to a playground in Brady's hometown. “For the operation of the division of state parks and recreation … provided further, that not less than $35,000 shall be expended for the City of Brockton Parks Department to renovate McKinley Playground,” (Line Item 2810-0100, “FY2016 Final Budget,” Massachusetts General Court, MALegislature.gov)
