2014-08-06 09:20:46 - Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin will hold a Wednesday, August 6th news conference in Manchester, NH to announce he is preparing to air a TV ad supporting Market Basket employees in their confrontation with a newly-installed, out-of-state “corporate raider” management. “We found that my radio ads boosted Market Basket employee morale,” Andy says. “So we are extending our support in a new TV ad backing the Arthur T. Demoulas team. While Market Basket is headquartered over the border in Massachusetts, the New Hampshire employees have shown real spunk in standing up to the corporate raiders that have been imported by Arthur T’s opposing relatives. The Market Basket ‘war’ opens a new chapter in American labor history. Workers are tried of being screwed by Mitt Romney-style bogus ‘job creators.’ Please join me in supporting our friends and neighbors who work at Market Basket. Hundreds of thousands of Granite Staters shop there and would be severely affected if Market Basket implodes. Let’s send the dirty dollar boys on Wall Street a message (Scott Brown invited them to come to New Hampshire). ‘Stay out of New Hampshire and New England with your dollar-crooked corporate manipulation.’”

ANNOUNCEMENT OF MANCHESTER, NH NEWS CONFERENCE
ATTENTION NATIONAL, POLITICAL, NEW HAMPSHIRE DAYBOOK & ASSIGNMENT EDITORS
Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin is preparing to air a TV ad supporting Market Basket employees
Andy charges that the new management team at Market Basket, which fired Arthur T. Demoulas, is composed of wall Street raiders who want to strip the company’s assets in a “pump and dump” scheme
Andy says he is fighting to protect Market Basket workers because if the company implodes hundreds of thousands of Granite State shoppers would suffer
Andy says “Slippery Scott Brown” should take his private equity cronies back to Las Vegas and leave New Hampshire alone
(Manchester, NH) (August 6, 2014)
Dear Granite Stater:
I am excited to announce that this afternoon we will be taping a new TV ad supporting Market Basket employees and the Arthur T. Demoulas management team.
The “dirty dollar” operators, who were invited to “come to New Hampshire” by Scott Brown, have declared war on the employees of Market Basket. [You can see who Scott Brown really is by reading the two links below.]
The new management team of corporate scalpers at Market Basket wants to reduce employee pay, reduce benefits and cut quality as a means of setting up Market Basket for a Wall Street “pump and dump” scam endangering our local supermarkets.
I was attacked by the editorial page of the consistently ridiculous Fosters Daily Democrat for intervening in support of Market Basket employees. If someone miscalculates, Market Basket could implode. Hundreds of thousands of New Hampshire citizens would lose access to high quality, low price groceries and sundries. Isn’t a U. S. Senator supposed to stand up for the people of his state? The company may be privately owned but it is members of the public who would also suffer - hundreds of thousands of them - if the board of directors miscalculates and sinks the supermarket chain.
Scott Brown went to Las Vegas in May and told the “private equity” boys and girls they should come to New Hampshire to support him, because he would do their bidding in the senate. [Read Brown’s Las Vegas news stories at the “links” section below; you will want to vomit.] What a disgrace that Republican Party “leaders” are supporting this jerk. “Private equity” is just a polite term for the way Wall Street fleeces public shareholders or, in the case of Market Basket, a company’s loyal employees. Mitt Romney became notorious for buying companies and firing the employees. It cost him the election.
Today in the Republican Party we have the ultimate hypocrisy. Republicans talk about “the economy” and “jobs” but they don’t really want workers to have better pay and better benefits. Republicans in Washington are slaves to their corporate masters on Wall Street, who in turn are motivated by just one emotion: greed.
It is time for Main Street Republicans to stand up for ordinary citizens and not genuflect to the mythical “job creators who have seen a 25% increase in their wealth since Obama took over, but not created many new jobs out of the incredible booty they have stolen from ordinary taxpayers. You should not have to be a Democrat to stand up for common sense and common citizens.
My new TV ad will go into production this afternoon and will air as soon as we obtain funds to do so. In the meantime notwithstanding the inane media criticism, I will continue to fight for Market Basket employees and stand up for the hundreds of thousands of Granite Staters who depend on Market Basket for their food.
Let’s tell “Slippery Scott” Brown we don’t want his slimy kind of politics in New Hampshire. Brown can take his “private equity” parade and march of his “big dollar” donors all the way back to Las Vegas.
We’ll have a link to the TV ad as soon as it is ready to air. In the meantime we are attaching a copy of the radio ad which is still running.
P.S. I may be an underdog in the primary but I am the only Republican candidate who has the experience and who is prepared to stand up for New Hampshire’s working families. It is not often a Republican candidate has a pro-worker orientation. But there are more workers in this country than there are Scott Brown-supporting billionaires. Please consider giving me your vote. Who is more qualified to fight for your values? Who is more qualified to stand up for New Hampshire’s working families? (Hint: It’s not Jeanne Shaheen or Scott Brown)
