Throughout the session, Serre repeated what has become her campaign slogan, "Don't send City Hall politics to Boston," as she tried to distinguish herself from Malumphy, who is an at-large city councilor, and Speranzo, who is the former city solicitor. Del Gallo called the three "leftists" and urged "people of faith" to vote for him as the only candidate among the four Democrats who is opposed to gay marriage.
Serre, who worked for former state Rep. Christopher J. Hodgkins on Beacon Hill and who is an economic development specialist for U.S. Rep. John W. Olver, continued to portray herself as the candidate most qualified and best equipped to begin representing Pittsfield without having to first learn the ways of the Legislature.
I love Del Gallo -- leftists! Here's more from him
Del Gallo failed to qualify for the ballot because he unenrolled from the Democratic party too close to the election. He is now seeking the Democratic nomination as a write-in candidate and has built his campaign on social issues such as gay marriage and more rights for divorced fathers. Speaking at a near yell yesterday and jabbing his finger at first the audience and then at his opponents, he said he is the only one who will stand for family values.
"People of faith unite. ... I beg of you to come out to the polls March 15," Del Gallo said, adding it is "up to Pittsfield" to prevent gay marriage by electing a representative who would vote in favor of a constitutional amendment banning it and replacing it with civil unions.
Jabbing his finger -- wish I was there -- anybody tape it?
