We published a Voter Guide in the 12th Bristol district special election to fill the vacancy left by Rep. Stephen Canessa (D-New Bedford), and that election was held yesterday. MFI is excited to welcome Keiko Orrall (R-Lakeville) as the newest member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives. Keiko defeated Democrat Roger Brunelle by a final tally of 55% to 44%.
Representative-elect Orrall is on the record as being pro-life and pro-traditional marriage. She supports the definition of marriage and putting it on the ballot for the voters to decide, as well as opposing the flawed and dangerous “Bathroom Bill.” She has also stated her opposition to casino gambling and the use of taxpayer dollars for the “Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth Commission.”
I look forward to meeting Rep.-elect Orrall and working with her to pass commonsense pro-family legislation on Beacon Hill, and oppose anti-family bills such as the Bathroom Bill.
