VIDEO: Council President Pope Endorses Brown

U.S. Senator Scott Brown was endorsed by the Democratic City Council President.

Democratic City Council President Patricia Pope officially endorsed U.S. Senator Scott Brown Tuesday.

"It's very important that our people down in Washington know where we are on the map and have been here and communicate with us," said Pope to a crowd gathered at the Main Street Cafe on Tuesday where Sen. Brown had stopped in as he continues the push to the November 6 election. "He has been a constant companion to us here in Marlborough."

Being a Democrat, it is important to vote on the person and not the party, said Pope as she endorsed the Republican.

"The City Council President's endorsement, whether she be a Democrat or Republican, is huge," said Sen. Brown.

He told the room of gathered supporters that he has been to the city dozens of times, both as a senator and before, and understands the importance of Marlborough.

Incumbent Sen. Brown faces challenger Elizabeth Warren.

Once again Pope shows her INDEPENDENCE and doesn't succumb to party dictates. She and Brown exemplify the essential characteristic of REAL REPRESENTATIVES - they put what is best for their constituents and NOT their party as the their FIRST priority. Thank you and Congrats Patricia for your guts and independence!

If you believe that Senator Brown is an INDEPENDENT then I guess you would believe that Representative Pope is a REAL REPRESENTATIVE! Real representatives don't say one thing and do another. The Senator says he's for woman yet he voted against equal pay for woman. Senator Brown says he supports the middleclass yet he continually sides with big business. Just like Govenor Romney who will say whatever it takes to get elected so does Senator Brown. As for Ms. Pope being a REAL REPRESENTATIVE who puts her constituents first and not her party. I will say it again if you believe Senator Brown is an INDEPENDENT then I guess you will believe Representative Pope is a REAL REPRESENTATIVE let alone a REAL DEMOCRAT.

Brown has PROVEN his independence -- even the Globe recognizes that. But of course you'd rather believe Warren, who was selected by the party insiders in Washington to run, knocking out the mayor of Newton and at least one other LOCAL democrat who had announced their candidacy but were forced to bow out. Warren is totally locked into the party which is what the problem has been for the past four years. Pope recognizes that and has the guts to say so even if it might offend some simpleminded party members.
