Victor Navarro Write In Campaign for 8th Suffolk

The Primary for the Special Election for Representative from the 8th Suffolk District which includes Ward 5 and Precincts 2 and 3 of Ward 2 is Tuesday May 28th. The Republican ballot does not have a candidate on it. This means that the winner of the Democrat primary will be uncontested. Uncontested unless a Republican receives at least 150 valid write in votes. Thankfully, Victor Navarro has undertaken the effort to get on the ballot via the write in route.

He needs our HELP! He needs us to take a Republican ballot on Tuesday and write in Victor Navarro, 105 Magazine Street Cambridge. He also needs us to ask all our neighbors and friends to do the same. So if you live or know pele who live in the 8th Suffolk, please ask them to take a Republican ballot and write in Victor Navarro.
