A self-described lifelong Democrat, Medford City Councilor Rick Caraviello announced his support for the re-election of Republican U.S. Senator Scott Brown Monday.
Brown and Caraviello spent Monday morning touring businesses and shaking hands with passersby in West Medford and Medford Square Monday morning. Caraviello, owner and founder of R.C. Limo Service, said he’s supporting Brown because he is tired of federal regulations and taxes on small businesses.
“It makes it hard for us to do business,” Caraviello said inside Magnificent Muffin and Bagel Shoppe Monday morning.
Although Caraviello is a registered Democrat, he isn’t exactly dyed blue. He said has voted for Republicans in the past, and his political ideology has an Independent ring to it.
