Boston Globe: "In less than 30 minutes, New England politics is altered with news of two cabinet picks"

From the Boston Globe:

"Given the hierarchical and largely one-party political control of both Massachusetts and Rhode Island, the churn of executive positions is slow. And the behind-the-scenes jockeying for those posts can last years among those angling to hold the job next.

But on Thursday afternoon the news came quick, bringing with it a major shake-up in New England politics. First, the word that Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo was President-elect Joe Biden’s choice to serve as commerce secretary. Then 26 minutes later, the scoop from Politico that Boston Mayor Marty Walsh was Biden’s pick for labor secretary.

With this week’s pair of Democratic wins in Senate races in Georgia giving them control of the US Senate, confirmation for both Raimondo and Walsh should be assured. The real story, however, will be what their vacancies mean for politics in their home states."

‘An Indelible Stain’ and "Republicans faced a simple choice: For or against democracy"

From the New York Times, an article of national interest for Franklin:
"The Supreme Court repudiation of President Trump’s desperate bid for a second term not only shredded his effort to overturn the will of voters: It also was a blunt rebuke to Republican leaders in Congress and the states who were willing to damage American democracy by embracing a partisan power grab over a free and fair election.

The court’s decision on Friday night, an inflection point after weeks of legal flailing by Mr. Trump and ahead of the Electoral College vote for President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Monday, leaves the president’s party in an extraordinary position. Through their explicit endorsements or complicity of silence, much of the G.O.P. leadership now shares responsibility for the quixotic attempt to ignore the nation’s founding principles and engineer a different verdict from the one voters cast in November."

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/12/us/politics/trump-lawsuits-electoral-college.html

From the Washington Post, an article of national interest to Franklin:

"HOUSE REPUBLICANS have faced what amounts to a choice between standing for or against democracy: whether to sign on to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s delusional lawsuit to overturn the presidential election. A large majority of them failed the test. More House Republicans, including Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), on Friday signed an amicus brief supporting Mr. Paxton, just hours before the Supreme Court unceremoniously rejected the suit. This is a disheartening signal about what these members of Congress might do on Jan. 6, when at least some Republicans probably will object to the counting of President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral votes.

Mr. McCarthy and the other extremists and toadies who have signed their names to President Trump’s antidemocratic plot may think their complicity is costless, because the Supreme Court was bound to reject the Paxton lawsuit, as it did on Friday, and there are enough Democrats on Capitol Hill to foil any GOP mischief during the electoral vote counting. They are wrong. Their recklessness raises the once-unthinkable possibility that a Congress controlled by one party might one day flip a presidential election to its candidate in defiance of the voters’ will, citing claims of mass fraud just as bogus as the ones Republicans have hyped up this year."

In the News: MA "may become recruiting field for Team Biden"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"When President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team announced his COVID-19 advisory board on Monday, House Speaker Robert DeLeo quickly did the math, pointing out on Twitter that more than half of the members “were educated and/or employed in Massachusetts.”

And while Boston Mayor Martin Walsh noted Sunday that Biden “can’t take everyone from Massachusetts to Washington with him,” speculation has started to swirl about which Bay State pols might find a new home in a Biden administration.

Walsh and U.S. Sen Elizabeth Warren -- who’d indicated a willingness to serve as Biden’s running mate after her own presidential bid came up short -- are frequently mentioned names among Democrats, and another one-time 2020 presidential contender, U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton, endorsed Biden in January after ending his own campaign.

With Biden trumpeting a message of unity, the Delaware Democrat could look to pull some members of his cabinet from across the aisle. Gov. Charlie Baker’s name has surfaced as a potential candidate, and former acting Gov. Jane Swift said she was “honored” to be among the ”#unexpected5″ blogger Patrick Riccards floated as potential education secretaries."

"committee members typically support candidates of the party at different levels"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"As Super Tuesday approaches, most know which presidential candidate they’ll be voting for. But for those in some communities, what about those other names on the ballot - those running for town and state committee seats?

Massachusetts is among a few states that list town and state committee members alongside presidential candidates to be voted on during the Super Tuesday primary. But what exactly do town and state committee members do, and how do they affect local, state and national politics?

Why are state and town committee candidates on the Super Tuesday ballot, and what do they do?

These locally-elected candidates act as a bridge between local party issues and state issues; they’re elected every four years. Local caucuses are held in individual communities to narrow down who appears on the Super Tuesday ballot."

“It has a singular purpose – to bring the community together"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"Taking the party to the streets for the first time on its own, Dean Bank is hosting its first solo “Dancing on Dean” block party on Friday. 
The party kicks off at 5 p.m. on Dean Street in Franklin, where local food, live music, and beer and wine will be enjoyed until 8 p.m. 
Michael Carroll, senior vice president of marketing at Dean Bank, said bank officials “test drove” their first event during this year’s Strawberry Stroll in June, closing off Dean Avenue for their efforts. 
Downtown restaurants like Acapulcos and Ted Gallagher’s have agreed to supply food for Friday’s event, and there will be beer and wine tents as well, utilizing the newly approved one-day outdoor beer and wine permits in town."

"everybody loves Winnie-the-Pooh"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"The temporary location of the Franklin Public Library at Kenwood Circle is not nearly as massive as the "Hundred Acre Wood" where Winnie-the-Pooh resides, but it certainly seemed a lot like the old forest Saturday morning. 
Dozens of youngsters and their parents and guardians packed in for a "Winnie-the-Pooh Party" in acknowledgment of the upcoming birthday of A.A. Milne, the author of the original popular book series that chronicles the adventures of one honey-loving, yellow bear and his gang of animal friends. 
The English author was born on Jan. 18, 1882, with the anniversary coming up this Thursday. 
"We're celebrating a few days early," said Caleigh Ross, the children's librarian. "We just thought it would be a fun event to do on a cold Saturday morning."
