Plymouth, MA – Surrounded by hundreds of supporters at two events, Plymouth and Barnstable District’s Senator Therese Murray launched her 2012 reelection bid. Amid the cheers and applause from the crowd, Murray emphasized her commitment to public service and her work to build a brighter future for her District.
Announcing her reelection campaign, Murray said, “There is a choice in this election. We can listen to the negativity and cynicism about our state and nation, or we can focus on what we have achieved and talk about how we build a brighter future for the Plymouth and Barnstable District.
“I choose to talk about how far we have come in the past few years and I am determined to continue fighting for our future.”

While discussing legislative achievements, Murray spoke of her District being her first priority on Beacon Hill.
“Each and every day I get up I am fighting for you, for your future,” Murray said. “The people and communities of the Plymouth and Barnstable District have always been and always will be my motivation to serve as your state senator, and I want to continue to work for you.”
Murray was introduced at the Plymouth event by Plymouth County Treasurer Tom O’Brien who talked about the work ethic and values that set her apart: “If you know Terry, you know she is a person of incredible integrity, honesty and compassion, and those values are what make her the best voice for the people of the Plymouth and Barnstable District.”
Sandwich resident and small business owner Bob King introduced Murray at her Cape kick-off, “Whenever we have a concern, we know we can count on Senator Murray to listen and to work with us to find a solution. She understands the needs of small business owners and the concerns of her district. I can’t think of a more compassionate and capable public servant.”
