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.

This additional $400,000 ad buy will run through Election Day, along with Falchuk’s ongoing “Combatting the Cost of Living” ad. In addition to his ongoing radio spots on WBZ News, Falchuk’s digital ads continue on,, and the MassLive, Lowell Sun and Sentinel & Enterprise sites. The Massachusetts native, who is fluent in Spanish, also will continue the campaign’s Spanish language radio ads on stations in the northeast part of Massachusetts. 


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 We also must replace our outdated fee-for-service model with an equitable, all-payer fee schedule that will incentivize hospitals to keep people well, rather than waiting to treat them when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.


My position on the proposed Kinder Morgan Pipeline

While burning natural gas generates less greenhouse gases than other fossil fuels, Massachusetts already is overly reliant on natural gas for electricity generation.  I believe we must work to generate as much of our energy needs as possible here in Massachusetts.  Our energy supply must be resilient, diverse, predictable and consistent with our responsibilities under the Global Warming Solutions Act, and aligned with the opportunities of the growing renewable energy sector.


My take on GMO labeling

Like 93% of Americans and many representatives of other New England states that are calling for GMO labeling, I am in favor of Massachusetts doing the same. People are entitled to transparency and disclosure about the foods they and their children eat.
