I think Martha Coakley is pretty fair at doing what the people want & need. She does take the time to check into things that are needed to be checked on.I am going to continue to vote for her. I think she is fair & responsible, as well as takes the time to listen to people. I'll know more when i speak to her. She does seem to look carefully into things that people seem to have sever problems with & that is important; at least to me. Dee
