Statement: Pat Sullivan is running for State Representative because he has a sincere commitment to making government more efficient, effective, and accountable. In tough times, Pat believes elected officials should lead by example. That's why he insisted on taking a voluntary pay cut, refused to send taxpayer funded newsletters, and opposed out of state travel and junkets.
Pat also voted to cut waste, freeze pay for bureaucrats, and institute performance audits. He’s sponsored major education reforms for greater transparency and accountability in our schools and passed the 2012 Jobs Now package creating thousands of long-term construction jobs for our region.
