Let's be honest the special election for Chuck Turner's seat on the Boston City Council is isn't exactly the sexiest race ever. Former Deval Patrick staffer Tito Jackson is pretty much a lock according to hyperlocal experts I've talked to and earlier today Turner lost his fight in court to stop the election.

OneIn3, a local organization that works on a variety of projects and programs with Boston residents between the ages of 20 and 34, is running a series of candidate surveys for the race. The first one in the series comes from candidate Natalie Carithers who gave typical candidate responses:

1. What are your top 3 priorities for next 2 years?
  • Job Equity/Job Creation
  • Education/Schools
  • Community Safety

Nothing out of the ordinary here.

Then came this gem from candidate Roy Owens:


Name: Roy Owens

Ok, sounds good.

Age: Atheist God’s Enemy, a godless existence and a wasted life that can not save a man or woman

Uh...

1. What are your top 3 priorities for next 2 years?
  • Highlight the lost life, power, Jobs, and Safety as a result of abortion. We are 70% of all abortion and dying at twice the rate of our birth.
  • Death due to aids, murder and drugs and incarceration. We are approximately 80% of all aids victim, 70 of all murders rates, and 85% of prisons population due to drugs.
  • 500 billions dollar plain to build facilities to deal with our emergency loss of life, while at the same time create jobs and saving lives.

You can read the rest of his responses here.

Jackson's responses will be published later this week.
