Steve Glovsky: Governor's Council - Second District

Steve Glovsky
Republican Candidate for Governor's Council
Second District

I'm a lifelong Republican with roots on the North Shore but am a ten year resident of Wayland. My family has a strong Republican heritage in Massachusetts; my grandfather Abraham Glovsky gave the convention, nominating speech for Henry Cabot Lodge when he first ran for the U.S. Senate in the 1930's (the same seat that Scott Brown took back for the Republicans in January). I retired from the practice of law after 25+ years but remain a licensed attorney admitted to practice in 1979 and am a graduate of Boston University School of Law (J.D. 1979), Boston University School of Management (M.B.A. 1979), New York University School of Law's Graduate Tax Program (LL. M. Tax 1982), and Harvard College (B.A. 1976). And on a personal note, I have been married for thirty years with one son who has just started college.

I'm the only lawyer in this race. The Governor's Council decides on the approval of lawyers as judges. The most common courtroom statement a judge makes is: "I'll take it under advisement." This means that the judge will review the arguments and law outside the courtroom. The largest part of a judge's job is the work done outside the courtroom. It takes a lawyer to understand a nominee's ability to do this work!

I am eager to apply my understanding of both people and the law to the work of the Governor's Council, and I ask for your vote on November 2nd!
