Pro-life Boston Mayoral candidate Bob Cappucci qualifies for the ballot

Since I'm not a Boston resident, I officially don't have any skin in this game, but every Boston registered voter should pay attention to the fact that they'll have a chance to elect a pro-life Mayor this fall. 

Bob Cappucci entered the Mayor's race at the last minute after being appalled by incumbent "Mohammed" Marty Walsh's plan to make Boston a place for abortion tourism. Mr. Cappucci was an elected School Committee member in the late 1980's before the City Charter was changed to have a Mayor-appointed board, and was the only member to oppose sex ed. in the Boston Public Schools. 

Mr. Cappucci is a daily communicant, according to C.J. Doyle of the Catholic Action League. Mass Resistance (led by Brian Camenker) is also backing him, and also noted that they've received a notice from a Charlie Baker supporter that she wouldn't support Bob because he's a registered Democrat, and would flip-flop on the issues of abortion and gay marriage if elected because of his affiliation. (Gov. Baker is pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, and signed the Bathroom Bill that allows men to use the ladies room.) 

Technically, Boston Mayoral elections are "non-partisan" where political parties cannot nominate single candidates. This format has been around since 1949 because Boston has been a one-party city forever and has not seen a GOP Mayor since Malcolm Nichols during the 1920's; it would be a waste of taxpayers' dollars to have an uncontested November election! 

So there will be 3 (Democratic) candidates in the Mayor's race: Walsh, City Councilor Tito Jackson, and Cappucci. The Primary on Sept. 26 will determine the top two for November. If Mr. Cappucci makes it the General Election, the DNC might run TV ads disavowing him because he doesn't fit the party's platform, which is a valid concern. 

I know Mr. Cappucci's candidacy can be considered a throwback to the Ray Flynn era, but there are currently no pro-life and pro-marriage and family office holders in Boston, and there haven't been any for over a decade. 

Good Luck Bob!
