MIXED ADC 010 15 PAUL JEFFKO SMALL TOWN PAPERS, INC. 217W COTA ST SHELTON WA 98584-2283 THE ITALIAN-AMERICAN VOICE OF MASSACHUSETTS m (Formerly LA GAZZETTA del MASSACHUSETTS) VOL. 120 - NO. 15 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, APRIL 8, 2016 $.35 A COPY Final Before Senate Election Packed Peter Howe moderated the debate of five candidates present. The last debate between all the candidates running for the State Senate district that includes the North End, East Boston, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, West End, and Winthrop was held this past Monday evening at the North Bennet Street School in front of a packed crowd despite the surprise snow storm that dropped as much as five inches of the white stuff. This event was co-sponsored by the North End Water Front Neighborhood Council and the North Bennet Street School. bysaI Why Do They Have Super Delegates? The party is named the Democratic Party, but the very idea of having super delegates appointed to sup- port any candidate seems undemocratic. In this case, Hillary Clinton doesn't pass the democracy test with me. In the primary, I voted for Bernie Sanders. He has . been making HiUary work hard for this coronation by party leaders. Great example: when the New York State Democratic Primary is held, even if Sanders were to win in a land- slide, at the end of the voting Clinton would actually win most New York convention delegates. How can that be? Democratic primary voters of late have been voting in huge numbers for Bernie, but he seems to keep falling behind. This Super Delegate ploy is nothing but the old ward boss corrupt system with a new name, but it still smells the same to me. It brings back memories of Chicago's Mayor Richard J. Daley and all that smoke and mirror stuff. What happens if the FBI Director, after interviewing Hillary, recommends an indictment on charges over using an unsecured email server? Her argument is stupid. She says she never knowingly sent information that was classified at the time she sent it. She adds she can't be held liable if later that information is marked classified. She actually also said too much information is over classified. That's such a poor excuse, isn't it? Let me put it another way. If you have a bottle labeled aspirin and it actually contains, say, Lexapro, is the Lexapro an aspirin? -~ If she didn't use a private unsecured server, is she in the clear or guilty? You be the judge.

Candidate's Paul Rogers and Steve Morabito missed this event. The debate was moderated by Peter Howe from WNCN-TV. Now it is all up to the vot- ers on Tuesday in the Special Democratic Primary to nomi- nate their choice for the vacant Senate seat vacated by Senator Anthony Petruccelli. With no Republican candidate running in this Senate District, that the winner of this primary will run on May 10th in the general election unopposed to finish out the current term. After the special election, the campaign begins all over again with the upcoming Primary in September and the November election for the new term begin- ning in January 2017. A huge crowd turned out for the debate. foryour candidate on April Sprlng Ah'e ? ... HOW FarDid You Mo e It? Even the ducks (mallards} at Columbus Park seemed confused by the April snowstorm.
