In an effort to help voters decide which candidate to select in the Nov. 6 election, WestfordCAT News is asking a question each week of those candidates who will represent Westford. Mike Mullen is running as an independent candidate for the Third District Congressional seat. Mullen will face Democratic nominee Lori Trahan of Westford and Republican nominee Rick Green of Shirley. Neither Trahan nor Green responded to the question.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Ballot question #3 seeks to add gender identity to the list of prohibited grounds for discrimination in public places such as bathrooms. Will you vote yes or no on this proposed law? A yes vote would keep the current law as is, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity in public places. A no vote would repeal the existing law.

Mike Mullen — Maynard Independent

I’m a strong supporter of Yes on 3 and have formally endorsed this position. My response to this question is short because I believe human rights are non-negotiable and anything that would make them weaker is not acceptable.
