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

Friday, May 31, 2013

 

Every Friday, GoLocalWorcester takes a look at who's rising and falling in the Massachusetts political world. This week, the Senate battle heats up, local races take shape, and Petty takes a stance (this is news). 

HOT

Moe Bergman – One of the newcomers to the Worcester City Council race for an At-Large seat, Bergman is already being tapped as a favorite to win. The Worcester lawyer looks like the candidate most likely to take O'Brien's vacancy.

Gabriel Gomez – The highly influential, Washington-based Cook Report rescored the US Senate race from “Lean Democrat” to “Toss Up."  See Friday's article, “10 things You Need to Know About the Gomez - Markey Race”

David LeBoeuf – Worcester’s favorite son graduated yesterday from Harvard and would be an instant favorite if he runs for the now vacant seat in the House due to John Fresolo’s resignation.

Smart Kids in Central Mass – Take a tour of where the smart kids are going to college in Central MA and it gives you an idea of some superstars that are developing.  It is a testament to the students’ hard work, great parenting and super teaching.

Lukes, Rivera and Eddy – The three members of the Council remain the only ones to have a position on the proposed slot parlor.

NOT HOT

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Mom – The mother of the two bombers is a PR machine defending her two sons. The better strategy might be to take a lower profile.

Ed Markey – Markey has 10 times the cash on hand that Gomez has but the race is a toss up. Is Ed Markey the male Martha Coakley?

Joe Petty – He took a stand by coming out with the rest of the Worcester Democratic Machine to endorse his own staff member who is running for 16th seat. Petty still does not have a position on the slot parlor proposed for the City for which he is Mayor. Go figure.
