Give a politician time to "reflect" after being caught off guard and this is what You get...

24 hours after refusing to talk to a political reporter from the Boston Magazine who broke the story of him "resigning"/"retiring" and then lying to another reporter from the Boston Herald that the aforementioned story had no merit, Sen. Stephen Brewer (D-Barre) would release the following prepared statement on his Facebook page.

"To my closest friends who have known and held the confidence of my decision these past few months, please know that your support means the world to me".

Do make public these "friends" who knew of your decision months ago... and why you lied about it...

Crickets.
For now.

PS the picture is from Gov. Patrick's 2x visits to Wonderland in '12 to discuss jobs as related to a certain MassWorks project that was fast-tracked by Brewer (a cool $1.2 million). This resulted in 0 jobs yet it did benefit a private, nonprofit library.
Don't they all look so happy...

 BARRE - In February 2015, I will have served in the Massachusetts State House for 35 years, having begun my career as a legislative aide in 1980. This past summer my wife Valerie and I were discussing what the future holds in store for us and what we would like to do with the rest of our lives. 35 years of commuting to Boston is a long time. And it is indeed the worst part of my job. The second worst part for me is staying overnight in Boston. Boston is a wonderful city, but I really do prefer Barre. Barre and my home on Pleasant Street, I am proud to say, has been my base for my entire life. The role of Chairman of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means, writing a budget and
defending the Senate’s prerogatives on the conference committee, is a very challenging task
with long hours, replete with frustration at deadlines. It has been my honor to have had this responsibility for three budgets as Chairman and two as Vice-Chairman. Being a cancer survivor has given me a new perspective on what really matters for my family and our future years. Therefore, as I prepare to embark on a new chapter in my life, I would like to announce that I will not be a candidate for re-election to the State Senate. It has been a great honor for me to serve the people of Worcester, Hampden, Hampshire, Middlesex and Franklin counties for more than two decades as both a State Representative and State Senator. Anyone who knows of my work ethic knows that I truly love the people I serve. No one has ever enjoyed public service more. I will truly miss the terrific people I have met at the hundreds of events each year. You are a joy to be around.
