Common Wealth: Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in Mass Politics?

Friday, April 12, 2013


Every Friday, GoLocalWorcester takes a look at who's rising and falling in the Massachusetts political world.


Slot Opponents in Worcester  The opponents of the proposed slot parlor in Worcester came out in force against the proposed facility to be located at Wyman-Gordon's past location. The slot parlor developer needs to get in the game before everyone is opposed.

Dan Winslow He had a better week than Gomez and Sullivan. The endorsement by the Boston Herald gave him some momentum. But, he must break through and convince Republicans (those that vote in primaries) that he can beat a Democrat.

Bob Lobel GoLocalWorcester's iconic sports editor has added another job to the brilliant resume - announcer for the Boston Red Sox in Fenway Park.  Now, that is a good job title for a resume. 

WorcestWOOD With Christian Bale, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DiNero, and Bradley Cooper all in Worcester for the past few days and into next week filming a new movie, this puts Worcester on the map for movie making. How cool is Worcester?

Massachusetts and Technology Each year the Milken Institute ranks the states for their economic and technology firepower. This time, Massachusetts rated its highest score ever. "By widening the gap between it and others, the Bay State has further cemented its lead in science and technology," says Kevin Klowden, Institute senior economist and co-author of the report. "With a critical mass of universities, research institutions, and cutting-edge firms, it is the indomitable state."

Following Massachusetts was Maryland in the #2 spot with California at #3. Colorado, Washington, Virginia, Utah, Delaware, Connecticut, and New Hampshire rounded out the top ten.

Roberta Schaefer President and CEO of the Research Bureau was tough and fiery at the Slot hearing. When the City Council tried to shut her off after the allotted 2 minutes, Roberta was ready to rumble. There is no stopping the taxpayer advocate.

Patrick and Murray The Patrick-Murray Administration announced Bristol-Myers Squibb is investing approximately $250 million to expand the company’s large-scale biologics manufacturing facility in Devens, Massachusetts. The expansion will introduce biologics development and clinical trial manufacturing capabilities to the company’s Massachusetts operations, and the impact is the addition of approximately 350 employees to the Devens workforce. The company currently has approximately 400 employees working at its Devens facility.


Women earning power in Massachusetts - According to the latest report the earning numbers for women are still far behind men.  Here are the numbers:

What a woman makes overall for every dollar a man makes: 76.6 cents
What an African American woman makes for every dollar a white, non-Hispanic man makes: 63.1 cents
What a Hispanic woman makes for every dollar a white, non-Hispanic man makes: 49.8 cents

Petty and 10 Council Members - Only Konnie Lukes is taking a stand on moving the slots forward. Mayor Petty and the Council duck and dive making a decision and say let the voters decide. Council members need to take a stand and let their constituents know where they stand on the issue.
