This is the first part in a series of profiles about the gubernatorial candidates facing off in the Nov. 4 election.
Attorney and entrepreneur Evan Falchuk is one of three unenrolled candidates vying for the gubernatorial office. Running as a candidate from the United Independent Party, a political party he launched in January 2013, Falchuk hopes to represent the group’s values of equality, civil rights and efficient use of taxpayer money.
Raised in Newton, where he now lives with his wife and three kids, Falchuk wants his campaign to engage voters and inspire a movement of independent candidates to run for office. With his campaign slogan focused on “smart, brave reform,” Falchuk says his ability to take a strong stance on positions and offer answers sets him apart from his opponents.
