Newton Mayor Ruthanne Fuller wrote this column for Commonwealth with Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll supporting Rep. Joe Kennedy for U.S. Senate.

As mayors, our highest priority when it comes to partners in Congress is a leader who shows up. And Joe shows up for Massachusetts.

But three of the city’s four member state house delegation — Sen. Cindy Creem, Rep. Ruth Balser and Rep. Kay Khan Kay told the Globe yesterday they favor reelecting Ed Markey.

“I wish I could still keep them where they are,” said Creem, of the two candidates. “I think Joe Kennedy’s great, but I don’t see what we’re changing here.”
