Don Bryant of Pembroke and Annette Benenato of Hanson are editors. You can subscribe by emailing here. The Pembroke Mariner and Express posts a weekly online  newspaper that covers area towns with daily updates on their Facebook page.

The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance advocates for fiscal responsibility, transparency, and accountability in state government and increased economic opportunity for the people of our Commonwealth. Instead of confronting the hard fiscal challenges ahead of us, many of our leaders refuse to offer sustainable solutions. Small businesses and entrepreneurs are suffering, unemployment and underemployment are rising and state spending is unsustainable.
