I tuned in Jon Keller’s report on independent gubernatorial candidate Christy Mihos’ running mate tonight more for a laugh than anything. I did laugh, but it was with delight.
I know John Sullivan. He was town moderator in Winchester back in the late 1970s and early ’80s, when I was covering Winchester for the Daily Times Chronicle of Woburn. He was terrific — smart, dry and charming. When town meeting would drag on night after night, week after week, as was sometimes the case in Winchester, Sullivan was the only entertainment available.
Frank Phillips has posted the official announcement.
Off the top of my head I can’t even tell you how an independent candidate for lieutenant governor would get elected. There’s no primary, so I guess Sullivan automatically wins if Mihos somehow manages to defeat his major-party rivals.
Too bad Sullivan can’t get elected lieutenant governor in his own right. He’d certainly have my vote.
