postheadericon AP News: Massachusetts governor hopefuls to meet with faith leaders

BOSTON (AP) – The four candidates for Massachusetts governor are scheduled to meet with religious leaders from across greater Boston to discuss religious tolerance and the concerns of working families.

The event is being held Sunday evening at Temple Israel of Boston in the Longwood section of the city. The forum is sponsored by the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization.

Organizers say they want to press the four candidates – Republican Charles Baker, Democratic incumbent Deval Patrick, independent Timothy Cahill and Green-Rainbow candidate Jill Stein – on everything from respect for all religious faith to exorbitant interest rates charged by banks.

The faith leaders also say they’ll ask the candidates for their plans to improve urban schools, including those in minority communities.

postheadericon Marshfield: Stein takes part while Patrick, Baker and Cahill skip, WATD Gubernatorial Forum

Marshfield - In August when the gubernatorial race started to heat up, Democratic Governor Deval Patrick on WATD called for one issue-driven debate per week, from Labor Day until Election Day; WATD started making the calls, and invited all the candidates.

Democratic Governor Deval Patrick and Republican Charlie Baker, who were contacted numerous times, each ignored the request or never got back to WATD-FM.

A campaign spokesperson for Independent candidate and State Treasurer Tim Cahill said he was not able to attend because he had to attend to official state business.

Green-Rainbow Party candidate Jill Stein was the only one to accept the invite, and came to WATD’s studios on Wednesday night. Stein is a physician and a 1979 graduate of Harvard Medical School.

“I come here, to the political world, not as a politician but as a medical doctor, having worked for 25 years trying to get people the care they need in a broken system that just keeps getting closer to collapse.” said Stein. “That’s how I really learned personally that politicians just aren’t listening to us and that we never get the health care we need, not to mention the strong schools  that we need or to get good jobs back, unless we really fundamentally take our government back and make it work for us.” Read the rest of this entry »

postheadericon AP News: Cahill sues, alleging Republican dirty tricks

Independent Timothy Cahill has filed a lawsuit against former operatives who recently defected from his campaign,saying they conspired with local and national Republicans to undermine his candidacy for Massachusetts governor.

The text of the lawsuit was not immediately available, but in a statement Thursday, Cahill said former members of his staff “intended to use confidential information they obtained” whileworking for him to benefit Republican rival Charles Baker.

The lawsuit comes less than a week after Cahill’s running mate,Paul Loscocco, quit and endorsed Baker. He said Cahill could no longer win and is filling a spoiler’s role that allow Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick to gain a second term.

Senior adviser John Weaver and campaign manager Adam Meldrum resigned a week before Loscocco, making the same claim.

All three formerly worked on the presidential campaigns of Sen.John McCain.

Baker says he hasn’t seen the lawsuit. His campaign issued astatement calling on Cahill “to come clean about improperactivities in his campaign.”

postheadericon AP News: Government employees punch in and out to politick

By GLEN JOHNSON, AP Political Writer

BOSTON (AP) – Government employees in Massachusetts are leaving their tax-paid jobs on a daily and sometimes hourly basis to campaign for their bosses this fall.

It underscores a unique advantage enjoyed when incumbent politicians run for office. They have a publicly funded infrastructure they can count on that isn’t available to outsider candidates.

Employees getting their salary and benefits paid by the government are free to shift to political work, as long as they’re on their own time. But it’s a distinction that can be hard to see and even harder to police.

In the past week, top aides to state treasurer and independent gubernatorial candidate Timothy Cahill have been spotted at mid-afternoon campaign events. The same has been true the past month for aides to U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, Gov. Deval Patrick and Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray.
