Lisa Wong: 13 to Watch in Central Mass in 2013
Tuesday, January 01, 2013
Her election to a third term in 2011 followed a rockier road to victory than the previous two campaigns, but she prevailed again.
Wong's fiscal leadership in Fitchburg has made for a remarkable comeback over the past five years, and with so many municipalities still struggling from the effects of the financial crisis and global recession, the mayor's skills may be in high demand elsewhere in the Commonwealth, both in the public and private sectors. Whether she'll stay in local politics or make the jump to the state level or even to private industry, Wong will definitely be one to watch in 2013.
