The quick guide to the four MA ballot questions is:
- No on Question 1
- Yes on Question 2
- Yes on Question 3
- Yes on Question 4
Residents should all have gotten a booklet with details on the four. If you can’t find yours, click over the the secretary of the commonwealth’s site for the details.
I went through the four and provided short-form pro/con arguments for each, along with my position. If you haven’t decided, have a coffee or other drink while you hear me out on these.
Otherwise, I noted that I”m trying to schedule some candidate chats before the Nov. 4th general election. Dem. Gov. candidate Martha Coakley will surely be on again. We just had Evan Falchuk (United Independent Party). GOP candidate Charlie Baker is still not responding, but I keep trying. I may go back to indy Jeff McCormick. If you missed the first guest appearances of any candidate, check our archives.
If you are hi-info, you noticed that I had not listed Scott Lively, the other indy for the job. I enjoy having guests on whom I disagree with in several big areas. Lively would qualify there; he is virulently anti-homosexual and a huge parent’s rights guy. Truth be told, I have’t asked him on the show. I probably won’t. i don’t know that I could be civil, a trait I value highly
If you missed the WGBY/WGBH TV debate-like event with the five last night, it is available at the bottom of this page. If for no other reason, spend an hour and revel in Lively’s answers. Which one of these is not like the others?
Back to the ballot questions, be sure you decide before you get to the polls….or just do what I say.
