As Mitt Romney continues on the campaign trail in Virginia, democratic mayors from Romney's home state of Massachusetts are hitting the streets in the Commonwealth and beyond to voice their distaste for
Mitt Romney. Several walked the streets of downtown to spread their message. They say Mitt Romney has not kept promises like creating more jobs and cutting taxes. They say President Obama has helped Roanoke's families and small businesses while Romney's economic policies are bad for the middle class.
We spoke with Robert Dolan, the mayor of Melrose, Massachusetts. “We ended up with the highest per capita debt anywhere in the country. We went from 31st to 47th in jobs. Education was cut to a point I had to close two of my elementary schools,” said Dolan.
State Senator John Edwards, Former House of Delegates member Chip Woodrum and Democratic Party Chairman Brian Moran took part in today's walk. The Massachusetts mayors have made stops in several states including North Carolina. Their next stop will be Charlottesville.
