Jill Stein, a past gubernatorial candidate and a great civic advocate, is running for Secretary of State under the Green-Rainbow banner. We have some big problems in Massachusetts with lobby-bought public officials, Open Meeting Law and Public Record Law violations, and voting-booth irregularies. She targets these and other issues with her Got Democracy? reform platform.
As a plaintiff who has twice sued Boston City Council for Open Meeting Law violations, a frequent appellant of politicians’ Public Record Law stonewalling, and a close observer of last year’s local election shenanigans, I have first-hand experience with these problems.
