Re: [mike-franco-for-ma-governor-council] Lysak & Albano - Good Match

From: Michael A

From the article: "In an interview, Albano reiterated that he will only vote for judicial nominees who support affirmative action, gay rights, a woman's right to choose an abortion, and rights for unions and working families. Albano said support for those issues will be his "litmus test" for candidates, in addition to opposition to the death penalty."

How can he make an only statement that's so exclusionary? Or any only statement at all before he's even served one minute on the Council? He doesn't even know what he doesn't even know yet.

If he felt so dramatically compelled to do so, how about just saying that he would only vote for the best possible candidate?

Albano, 62, dined with a son, Christopher J. Albano, 21; John A. Lysak, the only Republican on the Springfield City Council and Alexander Freedman of Longmeadow, who was Albano's campaign manager and is a junior at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.

"He did an excellent job as mayor," Lysak said. "I figure someone should come up and represent the city, watching the former mayor sworn into a constitutional office."
