Sheldon commits to fight for local fishermen’s livelihoods

His opponent, incumbent Bill Keating hasn’t done a thing to help the fishermen that are being hammered by big government over-regulation!

He won’t forget our fishing industry either, and will carry on the work of Barney Frank and Sen. Scott Brown not to see our local fishermen’s livelihoods strangled by NOAA. In fact, Sheldon feels so committed to this that he promised recently on a WBSM talk show to put his main district office in New Bedford.

The lobstermen may be next to be sacrificed for the greater global good of NOAA’s job destroying policies, which come directly from the UN, the UN’s FAO, and the NGO’s (Non Gov’t Organizations) that control the UN.
