On Monday night Congressman Barney Frank pulled in over $5,000 at a fundraiser at the Ceres Bistro in the Beachwood Hotel. The event was organized by Pulse publisher Paul Giorgio and former Worcester state senator Gerry D’Amico.
Some notable faces in the crowd were almost-100%-confirmed at-large city council candidate Stephen Buchalter, John J. Spillane, state senators Michael Moore and Harriette Chandler, State Rep. Vincent Pedone and City Councilor Joseph Petty.
According to sources at the event, Frank talked about “tax cut fever” (“I’ve never seen a tax cut fight a fire, plow a street or teach a kid,” Frank reportedly said) and reiterated that he’s running for re-election in 2012, even with the upcoming redistricting.
Touching more on the redistricting topic, Frank implied that US Rep. Michael Capuano is looking at a run for the senate seat held by Scott Brown, which would leave the state with nine congressmen for the nine new districts and eliminate any primary between incumbents.
