Support my (Rob's) Brother for "Councilor at Large" !

Rob's brother Doug speaking as City Councilor
   My brother Doug is running for Councilor at Large in my hometown. He's now got two opponents, and he's been a councilor for 10 years!  He also works full time AND teaches at Suffolk University. Doug has always been a rock for me, and cares passionately about our hometown. I've never seen someone work so hard to make the citizens happy. In fact, Tom and I want him to run for Congress. 
    He  served five terms as Quincy’s Ward 5 City Councilor, including one term as City Council President. He also served as Chairman of the City Council’s Downtown and Economic Development Committee helping to steer historic votes that will provide the framework for $1.6 billion in private investment in Quincy Center. He’s also supported changes to strengthen the city’s Responsible Employer Ordinance. He's cleaned the city beaches, and organized cleanups throughout the city, stenciled drains that informed people that waste water goes directly to the beach.
  As an older brother, I've found inspiration, strength and encouragement from Doug throughout my entire life. The one person throughout my entire life that's ALWAYS been there, through everything, is my brother Doug. When my parents questioned my moving to Washington, DC, or going back to school for a meteorology degree, Doug backed me. He was also there when I came out to my parents, and that was really difficult. I couldn't ask for a better brother. He's always been a best friend throughout my entire life-  and he CARES about everyone - no exceptions.
    Below is info about the accomplishments he's made. For more info, or to donate and help his campaign:   http://douggutro.com/

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
