From: Charlie Shapiro, Democrat for Governor's Council. TO: Lexington Democrats and independents (unenrolled) taking a Democratic ballot: In most elections the Governor's Council race is overlooked. On the ballot it's simply called "Councillor". Many are not aware what it is, or what it means. Typically over 50% of voters just leave it blank. This year, however, you have a chance to improve this little known body which is the elected citizen voice into the Governor's choices for judges, parole board, and a whole host of other appointed positions. Please take a moment to visit www.voteshapiro.org and learn more. There's additional info on www.facebook.com/voteshapiro. I would greatly appreciate your vote Thursday and will work hard on your behalf if honored with the position. Thank you. Charlie Shapiro Democrat for Governor's Council Charlie@voteshapiro.org On the ballot in Lexington and 31 other communities.
