Please be sure to share this on social media, including Facebook and Twitter, so we can get an even larger sample.

    I would like to see a debate between them.

    Like the Editor, I ONLY care what is best for Peabody. There is an overwhelming majority of Republicans in the House and it looks like the Republicans will be in control of the Senate in November. The current Democrat administration has been so bad the Republicans will most likely win the presidency in 2016 as well and be in control for a while.

    Moulton is a Dem in the minority party and has no shot to bring Peabody anything more than a scrap of bacon. Moulton would never be beneficial to us, the Party in control is never going to let him bring the real bacon home.

    Tisei is also in a much better position to suceed in Washington than Moulton. Richard has 25 years experience as an elected official and already knows most of the players in congress.

    Bob, sorry, I stole most of these quotes from you (took out Dunne/Cole added Tisei/Moulton), thanks for helping us decide who to vote for.

    Don’t just say Beacon Hill is different than congress. You know as well as I that Dems aren’t winning the House back anytime soon- making Moulton useless to us in Peabody.

    If any of you are like me and Bob(Peabody or bust), vote for Bev and Richard.

    Or perhaps, just vote for the candidate who thinks like you on the issues that matter most to you and your family.

      Nice try, but you’re just plain wrong there RC. Congress is NOT anything like the State House, and Leah Cole is not even close to being in Seth Moulton’s league when it comes to anything.

      First off, there is a chance that the House could go Democratic in the next few cycles. But Beacon Hill. because of the Mass GOP’s legendary incompetence the past 20 years, will never go Republican in our lifetimes.

      Even with a slim Republican majority, Moulton’s business, leadership, and political skills are superior enough that he’d be able to bring plenty back to the Sixth District.

      That being said, I feel Richard Tisei is also qualified to serve in Congress.

      But I know the game you’re playing here, JC. So, since I’m one of the ONLY politically active people in Peabody with the courage to speak the truth, let me also add this:

      Ms. Cole is not only disadvantaged because she is a Republican, but is even further up against it because she has no experience with anything at this stage. Sorry, but a 25-year-old, who didn’t even go to college, and has no experience with life, just isn’t qualified to deal with the political complexities on Beacon Hill. She went there with no leadership experience, no business experience, and no political skills. Everything she knows about politics was learned in Ron Paul Summer Camp.

      Simply put, hers’ was a fluke victory 18 months ago. I have a daughter, who is close to Cole’s age, and although I love and respect her for being a great kid, she’s not qualified right now either to be a State Rep. But then again, my kid is probably still more qualified than Cole, since she’s had real jobs and at least has a college degree. I’m sure Cole is a great kid too, but she’s not qualified to be a State Rep.

      Think about it, Cole got less than 1,900 votes during what was a really small turnout in that special election, and would have lost badly had both Gravel and Dunne not run against each other. She also pulled it out because she was supported by a far right wing cult, which pumped thousands of dollars into her war chest from hundreds of non-Peabody people.

      Look at it this way, I got almost 7,000 votes in 2011 running for councilor at-large, and still lost by 1,000 votes. Yet, she wins a State Rep seat with less than 1,900 votes? Just shows you what a fluke her victory was. Leah Cole is an accidental State Rep.

      I understand your logic here, but judging by what your saying voting for Bev does not make any sense. Jmho

    I know this string is about Tisei and Moulton but Leah Cole will long be forgotten in a couple of months. Bob is being maybe a little too honest as usual, but he is dead on right about her lack of qualifications. I am not a Dunne supporter but clearly Beverley is more qualified to serve. It’s not even close.

      Why is she more qualified to serve? Because she has been in politics longer? Because she has made her living off the system longer? Sounds like she is part of the problem. How do you get new people interested in serving if you use this sort of logic to try and discourage people from voting for new blood? Everyone always complains that nothing ever gets done or changes, then when someone new comes along, the talking heads trash her citing age, education, lack of experience, when its really about voting for the same old same old, keeping their political connections alive.

    It looks like the local races are starting to heat up! Lot’s of local race diatribe in the Salem News today. I see someone is calling out Speliotis in the opinion section and it seems as though Ms. Cole has done more than people think at the state level for Peabody. Why so much focus on wards 1-5 and congress, yet very little coverage on 6 at the state level?

    I agree with Peter, I wopuld like to see more coverage on the Ted Speliotis/Tom Lyons race here on the Eye.
