Michael Franco, 49, is making his fourth run for the Governor's Council after losing bids in 2006, 2008 and 2010. A local Tea Party organizer, Franco is also the veterans agent in the city of Holyoke.


He said he is running to hold the judiciary accountable.


"I see it's been politicized a whole lot," Franco said. "There's been a blending of people who serve in different branches of government. I want to prevent the politics and the corruption it creates."


He favors having voters decide whether judges should continue serving after a four- or six-year first term, as a way of making the judges more accountable.


"We should try to make it as constitutionally pure as we can - bring it closer to the people," Franco said.
