Spare Voting Record for Council Candidate O’Leary

by | Oct 30, 2018

By Elizabeth F. McNamara

Town Council candidate Sean O’Leary last voted in a general election in 2010. Since then, O’Leary has voted once, in a special election to fill a vacancy on the School Committee in January 2016. During that time, the other nine candidates for office have voted in every general election, with some candidates missing primary elections.

When asked about his voting record, O’Leary said he didn’t vote in the 2016 election because of “dissatisfaction with the Presidential options.”

He did not respond to a question about what kept him from voting in state and local races in 2012, 2014, and 2016.

“That’s an issue you see raised in campaigns all the time…. In the end the voters will judge whether a person’s prior participation matters,” said Common Cause Executive Director John Marion.

Here are the voting records for all the candidates for town and school offices from 2012 on:
