The Harvard Republican Town Committee (HRTC) has endorsed Jon Golnik for Congress. Golnik has launched a second bid for this Congressional seat against Democrat Niki Tsongas in the newly created 3rd Congressional District. In 2010, Golnik fell short against Tsongas but attained a milestone: the greatest number of votes of any Republican in a congressional bid since 1992 in our district. Golnik stands for fiscal sanity according to chairman of the HRTC, Jim DeZutter.
"Further", commented DeZutter, "The committee supports Golnik's message of smaller government and the reining in of the federal deficit." Jon recently spoke out against Tsongas' commitment to nix the extension of the existing tax cuts for everyone stating "we can't tax and spend our way out of this crisis." Golnik spoke to the group recently and touted his strong stance on jobs, fiscal restraint and lower taxes. HRTC joins a growing list of organizations and leaders across the district who support Jon in his bid for Congress. Jon Golnik has already been endorsed by the Groton, Shirley, Concord and Carlisle RTCs. Jon has also received endorsements from U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, former Gov. Paul Cellucci and Charlie Baker.
