Letter: Former House Speaker Keverian backs Devaney

Fri Nov 02, 2007, 05:50 PM EDT

WATERTOWN - I have known and admired Marilyn Devaney for years.

We have cooperated on several public policy issues in the past.

But of more importance to me, as an Armenian-American, she has always demonstrated her strong support for our causes. Marilyn was quick to help when Armenia suffered a tragic earthquake. She has attended our Statehouse memorial services honoring the victims of the Armenian Genocide.

And most recently, Marilyn led the fight in the Watertown Town Council when they voted to withdraw from the Anti-Defamation League’s “No Place for Hate” program in response to that organization’s refusal to recognize the Armenian Genocide.

Whenever we needed Marilyn Devaney, she was there! Now she needs you, and she has earned your support. I ask you to vote for Marilyn Devaney as she seeks reelection as your councilor-at-large.

George Keverian
Former Speaker of the House
