Vickery Supporting Deval Patrick
is reporting that Peter Vickery is supporting Deval
A few weeks ago, Peter Vickery, the elected Governor's Councilor from western, MA [the Governors Council ratifies judicial nominations in MA) convened a group of about 20 progressive democratic activists and leaders. He reports that "the people who were in the room, were enthusiastic about Deval's candidacy and agreed that they would urge thier organizations to back him. I came away from the meeting, agreeing to support him openly." (full disclosure: I was part of the convened 20 or so)
"Deval Patrick is a progressive democrat in the broadest sense," Vickery concludes, "and he is getting the support of progressives who are determined to win the gubernatorial election in 2006."
