2012 primary endorsement

9th Congressional District endorsement: Adam Chaprales for GOP

Republican voters on the South Shore and Cape Cod face a choice this year between two little-known candidates — Adam Chaprales of Barnstable and Christopher Sheldon of Plymouth, who are seeking the party’s nomination for the area’s seat in Congress. While GOP voters are fortunate to have two young, promising candidates, Chaprales is the better choice.

Chaprales, an investment adviser, has deeper roots in the district than his opponent. He has also held elected office previously, serving a term on the Sandwich Board of Selectmen. To his credit, Chaprales has also taken a slightly tougher position on the Pilgrim nuclear power plant, saying he thought the plant’s disaster plan needs work and that it needed more frequent scrutiny from federal regulators.
