Nat Fortune Questions Opponents’ Independence

From Massachusetts:

GREEN-RAINBOW PARTY STATE AUDITOR CANDIDATE NAT FORTUNE WELCOMES CONNAUGHTON AND BUMP TO GENERAL ELECTION, QUESTIONS THEIR INDEPENDENCE

In brief remarks today, Green-Rainbow Party State Auditor candidate Nat Fortune welcomed Mary Connaughton and Suzanne Bump to the contest for State Auditor this November. “I congratulate my opponents in this November’s election on their party primary victories, and look forward to the debate on who we can best trust to be an independent watchdog for our cities, towns and schools,” Fortune began. He continued, “Connaughton and Bump both have long track records as insiders on Beacon Hill. Not surprisingly, they are already amassing sizable contributions from the finance industry, insurance industry, and lobbyists on Beacon Hill. Can they really be trusted to track down giveaways of our tax dollars to these industries?” Asked how he differed from his two opponents, Fortune stated that “as the only candidate for state auditor who does not accept contributions from lobbyists, and as the only candidate independent of the parties running Beacon Hill, voters can be confident that as state auditor, I will answer only to the people of Massachusetts.”
