LETTER: Dykema's Campaign Mislead Voters

Dykema's return of the SEUI donation was not done properly according to one patch reader.

Dear Editor,

It is Rep. Dykema who is attempting to mislead voters. 

Miraculously yesterday she comes up with back dated letter saying she returned it.  The problem with that is that the SEIU never reported the return check until guess when?  Yesterday.  How convenient!

The other problem is that the proper procedure for returning a donation is to deposit and then refund.  If you look at the Representative’s previous reports, that’s how she has done it in the past. 

During the debate, she said the SEIU has never helped her campaign.  Don’t believe me read the Milford Daily News article.  http://www.milforddailynews.com/news/x185285772/New-legislators-received-thousands-in-PAC-union-donations.  Is the newspaper now lying as well?

100% of the Representative mailers have been funded by the Massachusetts Democrat State Party and other special interest groups.  She votes for the Speaker not the district.  That’s why she is getting all this help from Boston.

Thank you, 

Shane Hayes

Iron Mike, I see you must be back from the mall where you feel it is fine to give history quizes to other people's children and approach strangers. FYI: I checked and you have not been cori checked to survey anyone in any of the Simon Malls. Since, you can't vote in the 8th district from Acton...maybe you should move along or is there no republican to promote in your district. Take a Geritol & watch Wheel of Fortune but you don't care about this community. I see the good Dykema does in the 8th district and for its 56,000 residents, concern yourself with your own backyard. Come Wednesday this district will have re-elected Carolyn Dykema, still be neighbors in this community who regardless of the election outcomes actually care about each other beyond a politcal agenda.

Congratulations, you got me, Mike. Your comment goes beyond distortion into outright lying. Carolyn has voted with unions sometimes but certainly not on all union issues. I've said it before, and you know it. But that doesn't stop you from repeating the lie. A couple of examples: - No on casinos, which the AFL-CIO wanted - Yes on more charter schools, which teachers' unions opposed - Yes on new procedures for evaluating teachers, against the teachers' unions views - Yes on giving towns the power to put union workers onto the state GIC for cheaper health insurance, which AFSCME and other public worker unions opposed Those are facts. Carolyn Dykema's voting record is less partisan than every single Republican in the House. Every single one. Nonetheless, she has a history of working with GOP members to pass important legislation, the Valor Act, for one.

Iron Mike is desperate and smear good character, grasping at straws from his computer in Acton and doesn't care "diddly" for the direct concerns and needs in OUR community. As you know with a child in tow I showed up in Southboro to apologize in person to someone in our community that I felt I hurt in these blogs and didnt want to do that to a neighbor. Because come Wednesday we are still a tight knit community that truely cares for one another, helps each other regardless of party affiliation because we are neighbors. Iron Mike on the other hand doesn't care, would not lend a hand in our community & on a party mission. The opposing canidate could be be kangaroo but would hop on board to promote for party sake & doesn't again give "diddly" for a qualified community advocate to represent OUR backyard.

Well then they should be reporting it to the police. Ihave seen police beat reports mainly on thr D side and sl ss o I addressd a party not a canidate.

I trashed no one and the two of us are in a good place. Seems like something you heard third party isn't accurate.
