Kennedy, Liss-Riordan Pledge To Limit Outside Spending In Mass. Senate Race

The two challengers to Massachusetts U.S. Senator Ed Markey in next year’s Democratic primary have signed a pledge intended to limit outside spending in the race.

A joint statement from the campaigns of Congressman Joe Kennedy and labor attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan said multiple attempts were made to get the incumbent to attend Monday’s ceremony to sign the so-called People’s Pledge.

Markey’s campaign has a different idea when it comes to restricting outside money in the race.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
