The following announcement was provided by the campaign for Jeff Semon, a Lexington Republican seeking to unseat U.S. Rep. Ed Markey in the 5th Congressional District.
Jeff Semon, a , is proud to announce that former chairman of the Melrose Republican City Committee Scott Conway has endorsed his candidacy. Semon is running to restore fiscal responsibility to Washington and return robust economic growth to America.
Conway ended his chairmanship of the Melrose RCC coinciding with the state committee elections held in March. “In 2012, Jeff Semon represents our best chance to build a positive path for the future” Conway said.
Semon’s campaign continues to gain significant momentum that has been bolstered recently by a national media profile on examiner.com as well as his op-ed article in Human Events (Ronald Reagan’s favorite newspaper).
Said Conwnay, “The son of a small business owner, Jeff understands the struggles everyday citizens like you and I encounter on a daily basis. Having worked in the private sector his entire life, Jeff knows what it is like to put food on the table and clothes on the backs of his family members. This is the work experience we need; not someone who has ignored the struggles of everyday citizens from a desk in Washington for 18 terms, but someone who has lived them himself.”
In a press release announcing the endorsement, Semon called Scott's an endorsement a "fantastic asset" to his campaign.
“Anyone who knows the political landscape in Massachusetts understands that Scott Conway has been fixture in supporting common sense policies and candidates both locally and nationally.” Semon said.
Semon is looking to unseat Democrat Ed Markey who was elected in 1976, the year Semon was born.
