The Metrowest Daily News talked with the two candidates who will be vying for your vote in the 8th Middlesex District about their views on small business. As you might imagine in what has been a contentious race, there wasn’t much common ground.
“I have history working in small business, so I’m very sensitive to their struggles and I know how hard they have to work,” said state Rep. Carolyn Dykema, D-Holliston, noting her experience at small environmental consulting firms. “I fully intend to be a strong partner moving forward.”
Republican challenger Marty Lamb argued Dykema is out of touch with the needs of small businesses.
“As a small business owner, I understand what they’re going through and what it takes,” said Lamb, the owner of a Holliston real estate practice. “I don’t think she understand what businesses are going through.”
