Why Vickery Matters
Frederick Clarkson has a great piece
about why the Vickery campaign matters:
If one of the Goodridge Four justices dies or resigns from the Court, Governor Romney will certainly appoint an opponent of marriage equality, setting off a nationally watched confirmation battle. Odds are -- that judge will be antiabortion as well.
Peter Vickery is the Democratic nominee for an open seat on the Governor’s Council, from Western Massachusetts. He is an attorney and a progressive democrat for whom being pro-choice, pro-labor, pro-clean elections, and a strong supporter of the Goodridge decision are things to be proud of. Vickery, running for the first time for public office, defeated three better-known opponents in the Democratic primary in September.
