Massachusetts Republican Party Eyes Three Winning Issues In 2024

March 27, 2024

The migrant crisis, transparency, and opposition to toll roads.

Those are three things the Massachusetts Republican Party sees as winning issues in the 2024 election cycle.

The Massachusetts Republican Party sent a mass-email message from party chairman Amy Carnevale on Tuesday afternoon explaining the party’s approach to these issues.

Here is what it said:


The ongoing immigration crisis is placing an increasing strain on the state’s budget. Reports indicate that the Commonwealth is spending $10,000 per family every month, totaling $75 million monthly. Unfortunately, Democrats refuse to provide any resolution to this crisis and under their leadership there is no foreseeable end to this situation. It is imperative to implement border checks to ensure thorough vetting processes on the national level and reform the state law here at home so Massachusetts residents aren’t paying the price.

Transparency is a huge issue under one-party rule in this state, as exemplified by Governor Healey concealing her out-of-state vacation from taxpayers. Legislative decisions are being made behind closed doors, without any input from the public. Democratic leaders are bundling unrelated policies into single pieces of legislation to avoid voting on individual policies. Instead of actually debating serious issues, House Speaker Mariano and Senate President Spilka are jamming unpopular policies, and outrageous spending through the legislature unbeknownst to the general public for the Healey-Driscoll Administration to happily sign off on.

New tolls have been proposed by the Healey-Driscoll Administration to help fund the replacement of a bridge to the Cape. This expensive toll will pose a significant burden for residents, akin to the tolls on 90, which will never go away. Despite having complete Democratic control on the state level and our federal delegation, our leaders can’t get the Biden Administration to give us a dime for critical infrastructure. Doesn’t Biden tout his infrastructure spending bill as one of his “major accomplishments”? Our federal delegation seems more interested in doling out high fives at the State of the Union and attacking Republicans than prioritizing funding for critical infrastructure in Massachusetts.

The Democratic elected officials the email message mentions are President Joe Biden; Maura Healey, the governor of Massachusetts; Kim Driscoll, the state’s lieutenant governor; Karen Spilka (D-Ashland), president of the Massachusetts Senate; and Ronald Mariano (D-Quincy), speaker of the Massachusetts House of Representatives.
