John Walsh notified the members of the State Democratic Committee, officially, that John Buonomo declined his nomination for Register of Probate for Middlesex County – and that the Caucus is necessary [the notice came via e-mail after 6:00 PM tonight – the deadline for Buonomo to resign was 5:00 PM today]
Location and time of Caucus: 9/24 at 6:30 PM Waltham High School, 617 Lexington St. Only town and ward committees can elect delegates. Only elected members of those town and ward committees can vote or be elected delegates.
Wrinkle: As far as I know, Buonomo has not declined his nomination [he got more than enough votes to keep him on that pesky ballot – anyone know the total?]
I just received my first mailer from a Register Candidate. It is from Maria Sheehy, the Asst. City Solicitor of Lowell, with both a law degree AND a degree from UMASS School of Management.
She also boasts endorsements from: Niki Tsongas, Sen. Panagiotakos, Rep. Cory Atkins, Rep. Thoma A. Golden, Rep. Kevin Murphy, Rep. David Nangle, and Rep Miceli.
Until I received her mailer, I had never heard of her – wonder who else is running?
REMEMBER the old open thread? How about making this the new Open Thread…
If anyone hears/can validate that Buonomo declined, could you let us all know?
