Let me begin by saying that I know better than most how challenging — and thankless– election endorsements can be at a newspaper with a small staff. But I do think it’s unfortunate that Newton resident and former Alderman Charlie Shapiro wasn’t even named as a candidate for District 3 Governor’s Council in the TAB”s endorsement this week. (The endorsement is not yet online).
I suppose I’m surprised too, considering that the TAB devoted a paragraph to dining room table lady on the same page. Newton’s Herb Robinson gets a shout-out too although I bet Charlie gets many more votes than Herbie next Thursday.
The Herald, by the way, endorsed in two of the contested Governor’s Council races, but not District 3. I haven’t seen anything from the Globe yet.
