It is now completely official: Oliver P. Cipollini Jr. is the Democratic candidate for governor’s council of the first district. Mr. Cipollini confirmed his win following a recount conducted last week at the behest of Nicholas D. Bernier, the runner-up in the three-way Democratic primary race.
Incumbent Charles O. Cipollini, Oliver’s brother, has yet to announce whether he will actually run again or, as hinted in recent interviews, step aside to let Oliver win.
Sheila R. Lyons of Wellfleet, candidate for re-election to the Barnstable County Board of County Commissioners, has finally launched her new campaign website, and that’s at www.sheilalyonscapecod.com.
Finally, from the “Good Intentions Gone Hysterically Awry” file: a group that opposes ballot question three, which asks voters to legalize marijuana for medical use in Massachusetts, submitted to the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth’s Office the website URL http://votenoonquestion3.org for inclusion in the voter’s guide that was recently mailed out.
It turns out that this group, at the time it submitted the URL, had not actually acquired the domain name, which was scooped up by someone who launched a hilarious spoof site that boasts such “news articles” with riotous headlines like “Medical Marijuana is the Gateway Drug to Twinkie Addiction” and “A Healthy Body is the Devil’s Playground.”
