There’s so much talk about the potential candidates for Governor, but not so much about the potential candidates for Lieutenant Governor. So far, Democratic National Convention Committee CEO Steve Kerrigan, former Ted Kennedy aide Gerry Cavanaugh, State Representative Hank Naughton, and Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll are all being mentioned as possibilities and each one brings a lot of talent to the table. But I hope the field widens further still, and I hope that State Representative James O’Day (D-West Boylston) will consider throwing his hat in the ring. Since 2007, he has emerged as a vigorous champion of progressive ideals and common-sense. He has been a steadfast advocate of labor, youth, and environmental issues. He would make a great runningmate for any Democratic Gubernatorial Nominee. I urge Massachusetts progressives to learn more about Representative O’Day’s record. If you like what you see, and I think you will, please join me in trying to start a grassroots movement to Draft Jim O’Day for Lt Governor. If he sees a groundswell of support developing in favor of his candidacy, perhaps he’ll decide to make a run for statewide office. And that would be a very good thing for the people of Massachusetts.
