ENGEL TO RUN AS INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS
Michael Engel, resident of Southampton, former Easthampton elected official, Professor Emeritus of Political Science (Westfield State College), and current business owner, is running as an independent candidate for election to the U.S. House of Representatives from the Massachusetts first district in 2010.
He believes the federal government is wasting time and money trying to fix the old, failed economic and financial system, and that working people have gained little or nothing from those efforts. It is time, he claims, for citizens to start building a new system.
His role as a member of the House would therefore be to represent, work with, and provide resources for those who are organizing for meaningful social, economic, and political changes in America.
Engel’s campaign will be an innovative, web-based, personal grass-roots effort posing a direct challenge to the conventional million-dollar-plus campaigns conducted by congressional incumbents.
