I’ve got opinions on the Treasure race and the Auditor race, but I just noticed we’ve got two candidates for Democratic nominee for Governor’s Councillor in the Sixth District, and I know absolutely nothing about either of them. I also haven’t seen them mentioned on Blue Mass Group, so I just did a search and found nothing about this race.
The Governor’s Council approves judicial appointments, as well as giving approval or oversight on a few other things such as pardons and notaries public.
The Sixth District [PDF map] covers a bit of downtown and Allston, most of Cambridge, and then a bunch of cities and towns to the north including Somerville, Medford, Malden, Chelsea, Revere… up to Reading and Billerica.
It’s the seat currently held by Michael Callahan, known to many of us from Blue Mass Group’s first high profile race, the 2005 State Senate special election. He’s one of three councillors retiring this year.
What do you know about them?
Wanna advocate for or against either?
Edit: Verdict so far: Nobody here seems to know anything about them either, but people have seen evidence of Kennedy campaigning, and none of English-Merullo.
