BEST LOCAL POLITICIAN

Barney Frank

Outspoken, quick of wit, and an ardent supporter of crucial causes, BARNEY FRANK is a returning champ in our readers’ poll. Openly gay (and the first congressional representative to come out under his own volition while in office), Frank has a 100 percent rating with NARAL, is a vocal LGBT advocate, and is a proponent of medical marijuana and the decriminalization of small amounts of the drug. In regards to the weed, he’s quoted, “leave it to people to make their own choices,” which applies, we think, to much more than drugs. A consummate Massachusetts Democrat, and a worthy winner in our poll.
