Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin celebrates the victory of Market Basket workers
Andy says his TV ads supporting Market Basket employees will continue to run as the transition to “Arthur T” ownership proceeds
(Manchester, NH) (August 28, 2014)
Dear Granite Stater:
As you know, over the past six weeks I have stood shoulder to shoulder with Market Basket associates and former MB management. You can see a short video, as well as my TV commercial, on my campaign web site (see link below to my campaign web site).
Being a political leader means standing out front and standing with ordinary citizens when they need you. Being a leader also means standing up for the public interest.
There were equities on both sides of the Demoulas Family battle. If I have time, I will write my interpretation of the conflict.
But at the end of the day, the public interest mandated reopening the stores with the lives and families twenty-five thousand New Hampshire and Massachusetts workers at stake. Hundreds of thousands of customers were also part of the public interest calculation.
Ironically, the settlement came just as we as a nation stand down for a weekend to celebrate Labor Day.
I hope all of you will have a happy holiday. I pray, of course, for good weather. In New Hampshire we will welcome half a million guests over the next few days. Let’s take good care of them. Our economy depends on visitors.
God bless all of you, and God bless the associates of Market Basket. Finally, God bless America and God bless our men and women in uniform who keep us free and give life to the very constitutional liberties we cherish.
