Kennedy name is candidate’s only qualification

RE “STILL a work in progress, Kennedy shows natural gifts” (Editorial, Oct. 24): “Voters can feel confident that [Joseph Kennedy III] will grow into an effective advocate for the” Fourth District.

Kennedy seems like a pleasant young man, but in terms of qualifications for Congress, he is an empty suit.
