Ed Coppinger since there are no Republican or other candidates for the final later this month.

The following op-ed was written by Pamela Julian's son Anthony Byrne and daughter Courtney Byrne:
The local community newspapers owned by GateHouse Media, Inc., particularly the Brookline Tab and West Roxbury Transcript, have insulted their readers yet again. As the son and daughter of State Representative candidate Pamela Julian, we have witnessed biased and/or negligent reporting of this campaign from the beginning. We expected either the Tab or Transcript or both to endorse Kelly Tynan or Paul Sullivan. Why? They published nearly ten op-eds between Tynan and Sullivan while ignoring the multiple op-eds submitted by my mother, Pamela Julian. In fact, the Tab did not print my mother's announcement of her candidacy. They printed all the others. The Tab even published a picture of Tynan during the Brookline forum despite my mother Pamela Julian being the only candidate from Brookline.

As one of the six candidates for State Representative in the 10th Suffolk District, I have the most experience, both politically and professionally.

My political experience includes being elected a library trustee chair, the only candidate to have been elected to public office.  I authored pending legislation to establish a student voter registration system, which will allow students to register to vote on-campus. I helped win the Bellevue Hill area of West Roxbury in the 1983 mayoral campaign of Dave Finnegan.

I owned a business, developed an 88-acre site on Lake Sunapee in New Hampshire, and worked in both radio and television. These are some of my professional credentials but I also raised two children, both college graduates. Being a single parent, I know the challenges single mothers face.

As a candidate for state representative in West Roxbury, Roslindale and Brookline, I have had the opportunity to meet several remarkable people in our neighborhood. The 10th boasts a high percentage of active and retired public safety personnel, and I am proud to count many as supporters. As a Massachusetts National Guardsman and a former 911 operator with the Boston Police, I am keenly aware of the importance of public safety.

Democrat Paul Sullivan of West Roxbury said today he is running for the 10th Suffolk seat being vacated by state-Senate hopeful Mike Rush:

As an ADA, I have fought day after day on behalf of victims of violent crime, parents seeking child support and those battling drug addictions. I have served the people of the Commonwealth with the utmost passion and tended to each individual with the proper focus and effort they deserved. I look forward to utilizing my work ethic and hard working attitude that was required of me at the DA's Office into advocating on behalf of the residents here in the Tenth Suffolk District.

Also declared: Kelly Tynan and Matt Benedetti.

The district includes West Roxbury, South Brookline and a small part of Roslindale.
