Activist Les Gosule may seek seat held by Quincy state senator


Veteran activist Les Gosule is considering a run for the state Senate in the district currently represented by Democrat John Keenan of Quincy and previously represented by Michael Morrissey, who is now Norfolk district attorney. Gosule would run as a Republican. In a press release, Gosule, a certified public accountant who lives in Quincy, said concerns about unemployment, tax increases, victims’ rights, and “mismanagement of our tax dollars” had caused him to consider a Senate run. Gosule lobbied for years for tougher sentencing laws for repeat offenders after his daughter, Melissa, was killed in 1999 by someone with a lengthy criminal record.
