House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) is pleased to report that the Associated Industries of Massachusetts (AIM) recently released its Legislative Scorecard , and has ranked the North Reading Republican with a near perfect voting record – 89 percent.
“I am honored to receive a high ranking from such a reputable organization,” said Representative Jones. “In these trying fiscal times, we as legislators owe it to the residents of Massachusetts to be supportive of causes in line with the views of the Associated Industries of Massachusetts; jobs and the economy.”
The 2011-2012 Legislative Scorecard is the most widely read report on the voting record of Massachusetts legislators on issues important to employers statewide. AIM compiles the Legislative Scorecard at the end of each two-year session to ensure that the members of its organization know legislators’ records on key economic and public-policy issues, and to recognize lawmakers who understand the importance of a vibrant economy for all residents.
In the most recently released scorecard, lawmakers earned good grades for addressing the soaring cost of electricity, freezing unemployment insurance rates, streamlining the administration of state government and giving cities and towns the ability to reduce health insurance costs through innovative health plan designs.
