Bob Wyenott is running for Councilor-at-Large in Gloucester, Massachusetts.  Why Not?

And in Canada Mat Whynott is an active politician in the New Democratic Party in Nova Scotia.

For those of you interested in self-contradictory phrases, try Maria Italiano-McGreevy, who is running for Egg Harbor Township (New Jersey) Committee.  (McGreevy is also the name of a recent former governor of New Jersey)

Last night there was a "Pre-Election Meet and Greet" for Sheila Oliver, the Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, who is listed on the invitation as "Speaker Emerita"
