I intend to question all candidates directly to challenged their stances on issues that I feel they have the wrong position on, and I will post any responses I may get. In addition I will follow the campaign and post updates, including who I intend to vote for when I have decided.

As a voting independent - moderate citizen of Massachusetts I'm very interested in candidates apposing incumbent Deval Patrick who has been a disaster for the commonwealth. However while I agree with and support most of your stated positions I'm slightly annoyed by two of them.

1. Wind farms

2. Casino gambling

I view alternative domestically produced energy as necessary for future economic growth and think tide and wind farms in the cape are absolutely vital to reducing long term energy costs. I haven't heard any compelling arguments against them and I'm left wondering why you appose this.

I view gambling as a victimless activity that will persist whether we chose to recognize it or not. I don't believe its the governments place to legislature morality, and I believe allowing casinos to open in Massachusetts will prevent the loss of revenue to existing casinos in Connecticut which is a drain on our economy.

I'd like to make it clear that I am voting in the gubernatorial election, and I will vote for whoever holds the position closest to mine without regard for party affiliation. I hope that will be you, but its too early to tell.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Giuliano Theodore Taverna
