While the Big One — the election of our next President of the United States is in November — there is an important election next Thursday (note the different day for an election than the usual Tuesday), Sept. 8, with some interesting local contests for Suffolk County Sheriff and Suffolk County Register of Deeds.
Speaker of the House Robert A. DeLeo, Rep. RoseLee Vincent and State Sen. Joseph Boncore are on the ballot without opposition in the Democratic Primary. While the Revere Journal doesn’t endorse candidates, we can say without reservation that Bob DeLeo and Rep. RoseLee Vincent have done a tremendous job as our state representatives. If you look around Revere, you can see how beautiful our City looks thanks to a large extent to their impact.
We also feel strongly that Joe Boncore was able to hit the ground running as our new state senator and he’s been an accessible official who will continue to work hard for Revere residents on Beacon Hill. Joseph won a tremendously exciting election earlier this year and it’s great to see Joe at all of the local events in his capacity as our state senator.
Lastly there are several county positions that are contested on the ballot including Suffolk County Sheriff, Registrar of Deeds and Governor’s Council.
The weather is suppose to be good and we urge as many citizens as possible to get out and vote on Thursday.
