There will be a special election held on July 25th to fill the seat left vacant by the death of Sen. Ken Donnelly. It is being reported that Rep. Sean Garballey (D-Arlington) and Rep. Marc Lombardo (R-Billerica) are both interested. Sean Garballey is one of the co-sponsors of Jamie Eldridge‘s so-called Safe Communities Act that would turn the Commonwealth into a sanctuary state. Marc Lombardo is against such a measure and would also like to see sanctuary cities and towns defunded.
This is it folks. July 25th. We can do this.
