Primary Results

Congrats to Deval Patrick for winning the Democratic gubenatorial primary race. Extra special congrats to Chris Gabrieli and Tom Reilly for their classy concession speeches and for throwing their support behind Deval. I am so pleased, actually overwhelmed to see the Mass Dems pull together to support a candidate and defeat the do-nothing bozos. Everyone ran clean campaigns. They did not make the mistakes of the past and beat each other up (giving the other side ammunition) - they ran on issues and they should all be proud.

48 days to the election. That gives you just about 4 weeks to REGISTER to vote. You must be registered by October 18th to vote in the general election on November 7th.

Do it - it's important, it's your right. They regulate you, they legislate you, they tax you they make serious decisions that affect your life and the lives of people who cannot speak for themselves. They are making decisions to help (or not) the homeless, the hungry, people without access to medical services and educational opportunity. Yeah, yeah, yeah, blah, blah, blah - I know, I'm prattling, but damn it - it's not just about my bank account and your bank account. It's about helping people - all people. Think about it.

Make sure you take full advantage of your right to vote. And you know I'll be asking if you've registered. A lot.
