With rising taxes and unemployment, Massachusetts is heading in the wrong direction. Plagued by corruption, waste and mismanagement, state government has lost its way.

The Massachusetts Republican Party offers a new direction, following its core principles of limited government and individual freedom. According to party chair Jennifer Nassour, the MassGOP will offer strong candidates for elected office to restore good, efficient government to Beacon Hill. The party will field honest candidates who embody the spirit of public service.

The solution to the problems on Beacon Hill is not new laws, the solution is new lawmakers.

The MassGOP is a party grounded in common-sense principles. We advocate for families and businesses, and demand government policies that help, not new laws. For example, Republican legislators proposed $1 billion in reform savings in 2009, while the Democrats voted for $1 billion in new taxes and fees.

If you are tired of the corruption and waste on Beacon Hill, if you want to see real reforms enacted, and if you want honest, hardworking elected officials, join the MassGOP in steering the Commonwealth in a new direction.
