As you probably know by now, Marilyn Devaney beat Charlie Shapiro and Harry Margolis for Governor's Council in District 3. Even though Harry and Charlie lost, they exposed how vulnerable Marilyn is in this election. She only received roughly 40 percent of her own party's votes. People that vote in the primary are the most astute political observers and pundits, 60 percent of her own party voted against her. There's no doubt that had Harry run by himself his campaign would have been successful. The same argument could be made for Charlie.
I don't like speaking ill of my opponent, so I'll quote the Boston Globe article written about the Governor's Council on September 3. It was reported:
"Councilor Marilyn Petitto Devaney, for example, has been cited multiple times for driving an unregistered vehicle and received probation after an alleged altercation with a clerk. Devaney, who frequently challenges nominees on their history of political contributions has twice drawn scrutiny for claims she failed to properly report campaign loans."
(She probably would have voted against herself for failing to properly report her campaign loans).
I just want to say if you care about the government gaining the public's trust, you shouldn't be with a candidate who seems to be oblivious to the law. How does the government gain public trust when people elect sketchy candidates?
I am asking for your support. Thank you for reading this.
Candidate for Governor's Council/District 3
