      Tony, you are so correct. He was a very thoughtful congressman and this comes from a liberal. He was just in the wrong party.

    I am proud to say I worked for Congressman Shays for many years and witnessed first hand his ethics and commitment to serving all of his constituents regardless of their wealth or party affiliation.
