BOSTON (AP) — Former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown has joined the board of directors of Kadant Inc., a Westford-based paper company.
Brown said he looked forward to "contributing to the future direction" of the company.
Kadant president Jonathan Painter said the company welcomed the chance to draw on Brown's "wealth of experience on local, state, national and international issues." The company describes itself as a leading supplier to the global pulp and paper industry.
BOSTON (AP) — Former Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey has joined a growing list of Republicans who've ruled out running in a special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by the departure of former Sen. John Kerry.
Healey said Monday she was grateful for the advice of those who urged her to get into the race but said she's decided against it.
BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she's disappointed Senate leaders weren't able to come up with tougher changes to the filibuster rule that allows minority parties to bottle up legislation.
The Massachusetts Democrat had vowed to join with other Democrats to limit use of the filibuster — a move she said would help break gridlock in Washington by curbing the ability of Republicans to block votes.
