The Governor's Council is at times sought by the Governor for advice and consent with respect to nominations of judicial officers, appointment of notaries public and justices of the peace , issuance of pardons and commutations, and payment of monies from the treasury. I enter this process as an advocate for the vitality of our State Government's "Constitution" and governing process.
"Massachusetts is at a crossroads which may well point in the direction we will go both as a state and as a nation. I beseech you to join in this noble effort to take our state and nation back from those who are knowingly or unknowingly causing great harm to both."
Oliver Cipollini has a long record of generous and selfless community involvement. As a man of action, he has demonstrated that he truly cares about the needs and concerns of the people of his district.As your next Governor's Councillor for District One, I will welcome voter input on the issues which come before the Council.
I strongly feel that judges should be 'ambassadors and keepers' of public safety. A judge's respect is earned by considering each case individually according to the Federal Constitution and State Constitution and Federal and Massachusetts State Laws. As Massachusetts State Law allows, a judge should allow for rehabilitation of prisoners while they are incarcerated. A judge should not tolerate any violations of his / her orders. Repeat offenders and recidivism should be dealt with strictly.
Our judges need the respect and support of the community. Their overall social and family values should help them earn the respect of the public. A judge's character should be a role model. A judge's decisions should be based on the interpretation of the original intent of the Constitution and the laws made by our forefathers and by the legislature. I have a special interest in a fair and just appointment process. I believe in a review of all money that the Governor's Council authorizes to spend. My values are embedded in our Constitution. Rubber stamping of judicial appointments or warrants to spend money without questioning is unacceptable.
LET ME BE YOUR VOTE FOR JUSTICE AND FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY.
