The Republican Newspaper has endorsed Allison Werder for State Representative for the 2nd Hampden District. In this unprecedented support of a Republican challenger over a Democratic incumbent, the Editorial noted:
"Werder believes in government's role as one that helps constituents, but not as an unchecked agency that dominates or overwhelms the average taxpayer. She is a proponent of fiscal austerity. . . "
They go on to note her "willingness and ability to work with both sides of the political aisle is not only necessary in this heavily Democratic legislature, but the proper course to get best results. Her campaign team reflects this; Werder's bid is being supported by notable members of each party."
