GOP Candidate for Attorney General Meets With Berkshire Republicans
The Republican candidate for Massachusetts attorney general visited Pittsfield Tuesday.
John Miller has worked as a construction lawyer for 36 years after getting an engineering degree from MIT and studying law at Boston University. He says he doesn’t see the attorney general’s seat as one that should be influenced by politics.
“The governor is not in charge of the laws of the state,” Miller said. “The legislature is not in charge of the laws of the state. The [state] constitution is really the governing document.”
The Massachusetts Democratic Party is endorsing former State Senator Warren Tolman to replace Attorney General Martha Coakley who is running for governor as a Democrat. Former assistant Attorney General Maura Healey is also seeking the Democratic nomination for AG. Healey got 48 percent of the party’s convention delegates this past weekend. 52 percent voted for Tolman.
