Bad News Brady #2: Brady Voted To Kill Job Training In Brockton

BOSTON -- Today, the MassGOP continues "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 against the entire budget - and the people of his district - because he sided with special interests.
