Joseph P. Kennedy
February 21, 2012 by staff
Joseph P. Kennedy, Joe Kennedy III, son of former Congressman Joe Kennedy II and grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, kicked off his campaign for Congress Thursday morning shaking hands with commuters at the Newton Centre T stop.
“I’m very proud of my family’s record in public service,” Kennedy told the media after meeting voters, adding that he is going to work to gain the respect of voters everyday. “This campaign, like any other campaign, is going to be about the issues.”
Kennedy, 31, a former prosecutor with the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, announced in January that he was exploring a run for the seat currently held by Barney Frank, who is retiring. In the month since, he’s taken steps toward firming up his candidacy — including officially quitting his job with the state and moving from Cambridge into the district in Brookline. He also secured the same political consultant firm as U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, Northwind Strategies, run by former aides to Gov. Deval Patrick.
He officially launched his campaign in a video in which he says he’s spoken to people from “across Massachusetts that believe that Washington no longer works for them. People from Newton to Fall River see a government that’s become more interested in stacking the deck than allowing every person a fair chance to play their hand.”
