Hamilton attorney Jeffrey Scuteri writes in support of Congressman John Tierney for reelection.
To the Editor: You may not like Congressman John Tierney’s vision for our country’s future or his stance on certain issues. You may not like that he stands with President Obama. These are all valid reasons not to vote for John Tierney. However, the one reason that should not prevent you from voting for John Tierney is his character. John is not a thief. John is not a liar and John is not a criminal. John is a man of integrity and honesty and the people of the Sixth District who have watched him over 16 years know this. When late in life John got married he unfortunately took on two felonious brothers-in-law. After they were convicted for tax evasion from the running of an illegal gambling ring, federal probation required that a business …

Will the Boston Globe's endorsement of Republican Congressional candidate Richard Tisei have impact on the race?
Republican congressional candidate Richard Tisei has picked up the endorsement of the state's largest newspaper, The Boston Globe on Tuesday. The Globe cited Congressman John Tierney's family legal issues combined with Tisei's politically moderate nature: "Tierney’s family scandal — and his evasive handling of it — gives voters a reason to look elsewhere. Meanwhile, he has an appealing Republican challenger, a moderate who served with distinction as minority leader in the state Senate. This year, Sixth District voters should elect that challenger, Richard Tisei." The Sixth Congressional District includes Hamilton and Wenham. The editorial says that while Tisei is further to the right than the majority of voters on some issues -- citing his…

Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School student Chase Schaub write with an analysis of the Sixth Congressional District race and support for Richard Tisei.
In what is being called one of the most important Congressional races in the country, the battle between Republican challenger Richard Tisei and Democratic U.S. Rep. John Tierney has sure been one of the dirtiest. From the start of the race, both campaigns came out swinging, but now it looks increasingly like Tisei’s campaign is coming out on top. As we near closer to the election there have been numerous signs that one cannot ignore about the inevitable fate of this election. Tisei seems like he will be the victor and apparently Tierney’s campaign and the Democrats seem to agree. In a shocking admission of defeat, the Democratic Congressional Committee, a PAC run by Nancy Pelosi, recently pulled approximately $630,000 worth of …

The congressman called his opponent "shameless" and "irrelevant."
Democratic Congressman John Tierney brought sharpened teeth to debate with Republican opponent Richard Tisei on NECN Thursday, and he wasted no time digging in. Just one day after the 6th District congressional candidates gathered in North Andover for a debate, the two appeared on "The Broadside" with Jim Braude and left most of the pleasantries at the door. Tierney faces an intense battle for reelection, with many polls showing Tisei either ahead of him or surging upward, and the eight-term congressman worked to aggressively take his opponent down a few notches Thursday -- attacking his decades-long state legislator record and calling him "shameless." Video of the entire debate can be watched on NECN's Web site. Early on, the focus was …

The Sixth District Congressional debate on Wednesday was hosted by the Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce.
Candidates in the Massachusetts 6th District congressional race -- U.S. Rep. John Tierney (D-Salem), Republican Richard Tisei and Libertarian Daniel Fishman -- gathered at North Andover High School to debate issues relating to small business and job growth. Hosted by the Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce and moderated by Chairman Sal Lupoli, the debate lasted about an hour and focused and - in what may at this point seem like a surprise - focused on policy issues instead of personal issues. Tierney's wife Patrice and her family legal issues were not even mentioned. Tierney faces an intense battle for reelection, as many polls have showed Tisei either ahead of him or surging upward. And Fishman has worked tirelessly to position himself …

Seinfeld character George Costanza is being used in a new Richad Tisei TV ad.
Just when you thought the heated Sixth District Congressional race couldn't get weirder, in walks George Costanza. A new video ad by Republican Richard Tisei's campaign features a scene from the popular 1990s TV show "Seinfeld," in which George Costanza tells Jerry Seinfeld, "It's not a lie if you believe it." The ad then shows Congressman John Tierney telling a reporter that Republicans "are anti-human rights, anti-women rights, they are anti-middle class." The video ad is in response to Tierney's latest ad attacking Tisei as being a right-wing extremist and supporting right-wing views on social issues. Tisei's record, however, shows a moderate -- if not fairly liberal -- history on social issues. During his time in the State Senate, he …

The Libertarian candidate in the Sixth Congressional District is not invited to attend a debate hosted by channel 5.
For a recent Fox 25 debate, U.S. Rep. John Tierney chose not to attend. But now, another local news station is asking another candidate to do the same. Libertarian candidate for Congress Daniel Fishman says that he doesn't qualify to participate in WCVB's hour-long debate to be held on Oct. 25. "My first reaction was shock," Fishman wrote on his Web site. "At each debate we have put on a strong performance, and at each debate our ranks have swelled. Our campaign has serious momentum." Fishman collected the required signatures by the deadline and will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot in the Sixth Congressional District, which includes Hamilton and Wenham. Only Tierney (D-Salem) and Republican challenge Richard Tisei of Wakefield meet WCVB's …

A new ad from U.S. Rep. John Tierney once again says Congressional candidate Richard Tisei is a right-wing extremist.
It's just a few weeks from the election, and the battles are getting more intense in the 6th District congressional race. Congressman John Tierney's (D-Salem) campaign has released a new ad once again labeling Republican challenger Richard Tisei as a right-wing extremist. This time, however, the Tierney campaign is accusing Tisei of being anti-abortion. Tierney is the siting Congressman representing the Sixth Congressional District, which includes Hamilton and Wenham. The ad, which can be viewed here, starts with Tisei referring to the national Republican platform by saying "it is what it is." The ad then goes through a list of anti-abortion measures Republicans have supported -- including a constitutional amendment to ban abortion without…
