State Senate Candidate James Amorello Looking To Bring Fiscal Conservatism To Beacon Hill 

Printed from:

James Amorello was a small child when his opponent joined the Massachusetts legislature.

He is not a small child anymore, however. He is 24 years old and hopes to bring a fiscally conservative perspective to the Massachusetts legislature.

Amorello, an investor, and a member of the Holden Republican Town Committee, is running for the Massachusetts Senate against state Senator Anne Gobi (D-Spencer) in the Worcester, & Hampshire District; before that, she represented the Fifth Worcester District in the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 2001 to 2015.

“I knew inflation would be coming, so I’m basing my campaign around that,” Amorello told NewBostonPost in a telephone interview. “My focus is to help lower inflation and vote and suggest on policies that reduce inflation.”

Amorello said that he would support policies that lower taxes on consumers and small businesses, including any efforts to reduce the gas tax in hopes that it would lower gas prices for consumers. He also supports financial literacy being taught in public schools.

“Any taxes on businesses, specifically small businesses,” he said, when explaining which taxes he would like to cut. “In terms of larger corporate conglomerates, I’m not as much in favor of lowering taxes on them. Nowadays, that seems to be what the Democrats want to do while putting small businesses out of business.”

Amorello said he sees this as a major difference between himself and his opponent. He said that politicians like Gobi want to raise taxes in the Bay State and force people to buy expensive electric vehicles.

“She’s into taxes,” Amorello said. “She’s been raising taxes for her whole career and she doesn’t really understand businesses. People are struggling and living in abject poverty. She’s for the Green New Deal stuff which is irrational because 90 percent of people in the district drive gas-powered cars and can’t afford electric cars due to inflation.”

He added that she does not reflect the values of the voters in the district — something which he thinks he can do as a Republican. 

“I’m not someone who is tied into going along with what my party tells me what to do,” he said. “She’s constantly voting against the district, which is a Republican district. She’s going against the district’s wishes. At 24, I’m looking to bring a young Republican perspective into the Senate. I’m looking to bring a fiscally responsible and conservative voice and be a voice for younger people. A lot of young people don’t think they can do anything politically, and I want to show them we can and that our ideas matter.”

Amorello told NewBostonPost he is focusing his campaign on fiscal issues.

So on issues such as Roe v. Wade being overturned this past June and states having more authority to regulate abortion, Amorello isn’t taking a position.

“It’s codified in Massachusetts, so I don’t really focus on it in my campaign,” he said. 

However, when it comes to government restrictions and mandates in response to the coronavirus pandemic, Amorello said he is against lockdowns and cornavirus vaccine mandates.

The Worcester and Hampshire District includes:  Barre, Brookfield, East Brookfield, Gardner, Hardwick, Holden, Hubbardston, Leicester, New Braintree, North Brookfield, Oakham, Paxton, Phillipston, Princeton, Rutland, Spencer, Sterling, Templeton, Ware, West Brookfield, Westminster, and parts of Worcester (Ward 7 Precincts 2, 4, 5, 6; and Ward 9 Precincts 3, 4).
