2014 Campaign themes

In a biography Falchuk submitted to Ballotpedia, he described his political philosophy:

"I and my supporters with the United Independent movement in Massachusetts are focused on socially progressive ideas and fiscally sensible solutions - an area where I believe the majority of voters in Massachusetts are. Nearly 53 percent of voters in Massachusetts are "unenrolled" - choosing not to be tied to either the Democratic or Republican parties. These millions of voters are looking for pragmatic, common-sense solutions rather than temporary, quick fixes or partisan sound bites. I believe that by taking the time to communicate with and build consensus among voters on innovative, forward-looking proposals and initiatives, we have a tremendous opportunity to improve what has become the "politics as usual" climate in Massachusetts, and show greater respect for voters' priorities and voices in the process."[2]
