Elizabeth Warren Engages UMass Dartmouth Students

TSM

It was standing room only at the Claire T. Carney Library’s Grand Reading Room at UMass Dartmouth, as college students and others gathered to listen to Democratic Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren.

The democrat was able to answer questions on national and local issues without retort from incumbent Senator Scott Brown, who had declined what was supposed to be a debate between the two candidates.

Warren outlined her take on a vast array of issues, diving deep into the topics of education and the economy.

Warren also hit home with local issues such as the Cape Wind Project and other clean energy initiatives. Warren says windfarms off the Southcoast have the potential to propel New Bedford and surrounding communities out of the financial downturn.

Warren says she fully supports clean energy, and weening the country off of it’s reliance on fossil fuels.

Warren also acknowledged that earmarks for local initiatives are a big part of project funding in the state. She says leaders like Ted Kennedy and Barney Frank were adept at securing federal dollars for the Southcoast.

Warren also gave her thoughts on the troubles facing the state’s fishing industry, and said if she’s elected, she will advocate for better science used by NOAA in determining catch limits.

The final debate between Warren and Brown takes place October 30th in Boston.
