Speaking at the July 4th District Town Meeting held in Concord's Minuteman National Park, the event which organizer Stuart-Sinclair Weeks designed as a first step in '...reawakening the American dream,'. Cimbrelo acknowledged the frustrations of running a campaign in today's political arena when serious attention is given only to those in either Democratic or Republican parties and in the current media climate, given more sound bites than substance. Cimbrelo spoke honestly about the mountainous task of getting the required 10,000 signatures - and the funds to fuel the effort - when mainstream media turns a blind eye to candidates outside the two-party "duopoly." Even though current statistics show 52% of Massachusetts voters have no declared party affiliation, and independent numbers keep growing.
To further stem the unregulated and unending outsourcing of American jobs and industries overseas he once again called upon Washington to overturn NAFTA and begin a 3 year withdrawal from the WTO.
Sighting the stalemate between borrowers with poor credit and the lack of lending being offered by banks, he urges that Congress "...immediately move to create government-guaranteed 2nd-chance loans for working Americans via the FHA to allow consumers to begin to be the engines of job creation [and that] the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act [be extended] beyond the 2012 end date."
"Until the recent mortgage crisis, growth in housing starts has always been an excellent precursor to a robust economy."
In addition, to help stabilize the housing market and provide badly needed affordable rental housing, Cimbrelo calls for Washington "...to issue an immediate 100% freeze on the sale of foreclosed properties, and that lender-owned homes be ONLY made available as rental property for the next 3 years."
Cimbrelo has crafted several innovative programs to address job creation, developing alternate energies and retooling America's industries for the transition, and for immigration reform, citing "...I am the only candidate [who] has laid out not one, but four distinct job creation planks - and most require little to NO tax payer funding." Yet, perhaps because he refuses to participate in the 'softball' press both Brown and Warren garner, his issue-driven discussions haven't made into mainstream media.
"I urge you to write or call local media outlets and pressure them to not only allow me to be heard, but also to be included in the upcoming [Brown-Warren] debates. I leave you with this thought: On election day, Don't Write Off Your Future - Write IN Bill Cimbrelo!"
