ABOUT THE GOVERNOR'S COUNCIL
WHAT IT IS
Mass.gov's description of the Governor's Council:
"The Massachusetts Governor's Council, also known as the Executive Council, is composed of eight individuals elected from districts, and the Lieutenant Governor who serves ex officio.
The eight councillors are elected from their respective districts every two years.
The Council meets weekly to record advice and consent on warrants for the state treasury, pardons and commutations, and recording advice and consent to gubernatorial appointments such as judges, clerk-magistrates, public administrators, members of the Parole Board, Appellate Tax Board, Industrial Accident Board and Industrial Accident Reviewing Board, notaries, and justices of the peace."
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT
In our Constitutional Republic, we rely on three independent branches of government to provide checks and balances. This applies not only to the federal government but also to our state.
In the past several decades, we have seen a concerning pattern in the legislature. They either refuse to legislate and rely on the courts or they create unconstitutional laws which end up in court.
This pattern highlights the importance of having a judiciary that is impartial and constitutional. Having judges that rule according to their own opinions or ideas is unacceptable and dangerous to our state and our nation.
Judges are not elected, but the Governor's Council, who will choose the judges is elected by the people. We need to make sure we have a strong conservative on our council to return sanity to the judiciary.
Now is the time to have a strong conservative Republican on our Governor's Council, please donate to John's campaign. He would be honored to have your support and to be a voice for the western half of this great state of Massachusetts.
Thank you so much for taking the time to invest in this little known, but very important part of our state government. We hope that John's election to the Governor's Council will start a trend in getting more conservatives serving in our state.
