Adrien’s endorsement a message

By endorsing Councilor Capone’s mayoral candidacy, Councilor Adrien is drawing a line in the sand.

She has said that she will not endorse and could never endorse the current mayor for a wide variety of personal and political reasons.

Her endorsement of Capone puts an exclamation point to Adrien’s thinking about who ought to be the next mayor of Everett, and what might he be bringing to city hall?

The line in the sand she has drawn is between her and the mayor.

He can’t stand her. She wants no part of him.

Capone, on the other hand, is more of Adrien’s type of candidate.

He is honest. He has personal integrity. He keeps his word. He is careful, thoughtful, incisive and he is ever the thinking man’s lawyer about many things.

Join me and vote Fred Capone for mayor

I SUPPORT FRED CAPONE FOR MAYOR!

Everett faces perhaps the most pivotal election in our city’s history. I’m hoping by now everyone understands the character of the man who works in the corner office on the 3rd floor of City Hall. If not, Google It. To save you some effort, I’ll just tell my story:

Twenty years ago, I was a volunteer on Jarrett Barrios’ campaign for State Senate. Former Senator Barrios had an opponent in that campaign, Alderman Carlo DeMaria.

At the time, I wrote a letter to the editor of a local paper in response to an attack advertisement that was run against Senator Barrios. My letter contained nothing negative, just positive messaging for the campaign I was heavily involved in.

CAPUANO ENDORSEMENT

The Leader Herald today endorses Congressman Mike Capuano for another term.

For the past 20 years Mike Capuano has been the picture of what a liberal congressman from Massachusetts ought to be.

He is a strong voice in the Congress. Screen Shot 2018-08-30 at 5.59.32 PM

His reputation as a man, as a husband, father, son and brother is impeccable.

He understands poverty. He grew up in Somerville at a time when that city was a far different place than it is today.

He hustled and worked hard for everything he has in his life.
