Milton's Jubinville Makes Final Push for Governor's Council Seat
Milton attorney Bob Jubinville has already been to several polling place and his day is just getting started.
Milton resident Bob Jubinville is in the middle of a long day.
The Democratic candidate for Governor’s Council District 2 greeted voters in Franklin before the polls opened this morning, shook hands in Sharon and returned to Milton for a bit more campaigning and to cast his own vote.
This was all before 11 a.m.
Jubinville, who has been an attorney for 33 years, will be back on the road to meet with voters, likely in Boston, Stoughton and Randolph before the polls close at 8 tonight.
Once all the votes are in, family and friends will join Jubinville at his Milton law office to wait for the results.
He expects around 50 people to stop by this evening.
“I’ve been campaigning like crazy,” said Jubinville, who won a four-candidate primary for the chance to take on Republican Earl Sholley today.
Jubinville has been at rallies and events across District 2, which stretches from Boston to Natick and then south to West Bridgewater and Attleboro.
The 66-year-old defense attorney was at two major rallies yesterday in Framingham and West Roxbury, alongside fellow Democrat, Elizabeth Warren as she runs against incumbent Scott Brown for a seat in the U.S. Senate.
As Jubinville continues to meet voters, he’ll likely have to keep explaining the Governor’s Council.
If elected, Jubinville will be one of eight Councilors who have the responsibility to screen, interview and confirm the judges and clerk magistrates that are nominated by the Governor.
While some voter’s may not know much about one of the state's oldest elected boards, Jubinville is happy to explain and ask for a vote.
“I’ve been very pleased,” Jubinville said. “[Voters] have bee very receptive.”
