What Carolyn Dykema fails to disclose about her voting record (October 25, 2012)
Today Marty Lamb, Republican candidate for State Representative in the Eighth Middlesex District, responded to Rep.

She votes for the Speaker 95.37% of the time. You don’t have to believe me. I am happy to send people her voting record,” said Lamb. “She claims to always vote for the district, but yet she sent $35million of our tax dollars to bail out Lawrence. That did not help Holliston, Hopkinton, Southborough, and Westborough.” (more)
