During the primary for Governor’s Council, (Democrat) Charlie Shapiro accused (Democrat) Marilyn Devaney of getting an endorsement from a Republican organization called, Massachusetts Citizens for Life Inc. (MCFL). MCFL is an organization that fights for anti-abortion laws. Marilyn said that Charlie was incorrect and accused Charlie of fabricating facts. In reality, Charlie was CORRECT! Here is the MCFL endorsement that was made:

Madeline McComish, chair of the MCFL State PAC, has announced two endorsements for Governor’s Council. According to Madeline, “The Governor’s Council is very important from a pro-life perspective. It is the body which approves judicial appointments. You know the influence these judges have on the life issues. In Massachusetts, our tax money pays for abortions in spite of legislation to the contrary because the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decided that the State Constitution requires us to fund abortion. We are very pleased to endorse Oliver Cipollini in the First Council District and Marilyn Devaney in the Third Council District ”

Oliver Cipollini already lost his primary.

I am running as an independent and I have no problem telling people that I am pro-choice. I believe in women’s rights and I believe in giving women the right to have an abortion, especially in situations where she was a victim of a rape.

I wonder if the Democrats of District 3 have the courage of their conviction by making a statement regarding Councilor Devaney’s position, like the Democrats did in Oliver Cipollini’s district.

District 3 has an alternative. I am an independent who believes in equality for all and giving women the right to choose. Please vote for me.

Tom Sheff

Candidate for Governor’s Council/District 3
