Last night, Bob Jubinville
joined his fellow candidates for the Democratic nomination
for Governor's Council, District 2 for a debate at the Morse Institute Library
in Natick. The debate, the only forum of its type scheduled
before the Democratic Primary on September 6th, provided Bob
with a great opportunity to explain to voters why he is the
most qualified and experienced candidate in the race.
Special thanks to the Natick,
Framingham, Wayland, and Attleboro Democratic Town
Committees for sponsoring the debate and to the Morse Institute Library
for hosting the event.
Here's some of excerpts from
local media coverage of the debate:
"I want to do my part to make sure only the best get a
robe," Jubinville said, emphasizing his three decades of experience as
a trail lawyer. "If they ’re not the best, we all pay the price in that (court) room."
Jubinville compared the council to hiring surgeons, noting a patient would not want to go to a hospital where people with no
medical experience selected a surgeon. "Our court system is just as important as UMass Medical
Center," he said.
Jubinville said the prison system is not equipped to solve the drug problem and health systems should play a greater role.
All four candidates said a experience was an important quality for a judge.
"I want to see they ’ve been in those courts a long time and dealt with the
issues," Jubinville said, noting age alone would not disqualify someone.
Jubinville is a veteran trial lawyer who said he has been involved in more than 7,500 cases. He cited his experience in law as a means to better select
judges, and said his knowledge makes him the best candidate.
"The Governor's council has the last say on who judges us, I want to make sure only the best get those seats,” Jubinville said.
He advocated for older, more experienced members of society to be judges, saying experience and wisdom are important traits
