"The Democratic and Republican parties don't 'own' your vote, you do.
If you think independent, vote independent."

United Independent Party

Why I Ran

Here’s the conventional wisdom on American politics:  Americans are deeply divided, angry at government, but split over what it should do.  They aren’t sure who to blame, but think it’s one party or the other in Congress, or the President, or the Governor.

There’s some truth to this, but I don’t think it’s the right diagnosis. 


Three Things Voters Are Right to be Worried About

Politicians and big, monied interests are picking the pockets of countless Massachusetts families – and getting away with it.

While Super PACs pour millions into this election, and while Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker are busy chatting during debates about Halloween costumes and who should play them in a movie, neither candidate has come out with anything even resembling a concrete plan to stop the relentless assault on the economic security of Massachusetts families.


Evan Falchuk, United Independent Party Candidate for Governor, Releases Next Statewide TV Ad, “Are You Inspired?”

Boston – United Independent Party candidate for Governor of Massachusetts Evan Falchuk will launch another television ad to air on all major network affiliates in Boston and Springfield, as well as Charter TV3 in Worcester, beginning October 17. Falchuk’s new “Are you inspired?” TV ad calls out the lack of enthusiasm so many voters say they feel about both the Baker and Coakley major-party campaigns.


Health Care Priorities

A reporter recently asked the candidates for governor to share their health care priorities in a paragraph. Here's my thinking: 

We must cut the cost of health care in Massachusetts by stopping the monopolistic consolidation of hospitals into market-distorting systems like Partners. We also must replace our outdated fee-for-service model with an equitable, all-payer fee schedule that will incentivize hospitals to keep people well, rather than waiting to treat them when they are sick. 


My take on the Democratic and Republican primaries

The Massachusetts primary results are in. After millions of dollars of spending by the two major parties and their Super PACs to get people to vote, nearly 84% of people didn't. Perhaps it’s because there wasn’t anything exactly inspiring to vote for.


"Equal" means for ALL. What we must do for gender equality

At the United Independent Party, when we say "Everyone is equal, and everyone's civil liberties must be protected," we mean everyone. Despite the fact that it's 2014, gender inequality is still very much a part of the landscape. Our lawmakers, and our society as a whole, must do much more to combat discrimination on this front – whether related to pay inequity, discrimination in the workplace, sexual harassment, or physical intimidation or abuse.


Governor Patrick’s decision on funding for the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center: A Bad Deal for Massachusetts

In light of Governor Patrick’s July 29 announcement that he will be signing a bill authorizing a $1 billion expansion of the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, I reiterate my opposition to this move, which puts massive borrowing by the state for a project with unguaranteed financial return above the very real, day-to-day priorities of so many people in Massachusetts.
