CENTERVILLE — It was a busy first week of October for a Cape GOP power couple.
Republican State Committeewoman Judith Crocker has joined the U.S. Senate campaign of John Kingston, a businessman and philanthropist hoping to unseat U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., in 2018.
Crocker will serve as finance director for the Kingston campaign. The campaign already has a war chest of $3.26 million, including a $3 million loan from the candidate himself, and 15 full-time in-state staff members, according to State House News Service.
Following a transition period, Crocker will leave her position as director of sales at Cape Cod Broadcasting Media in Hyannis.
On Beacon Hill, her husband, state Rep. William Crocker, R-Centerville, celebrated his first piece of legislation passed in the House and Senate and signed by Gov. Charlie Baker.
The bill, a home-rule petition, addresses changes to the Barnstable charter involving term lengths and vacancies on the Town Council, as well as changing the town collector position from an elective office to one appointed by the town manager.
Barnstable voters still must act on the changes during the town election Nov. 7.
