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

Friday, April 26, 2013

 

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

HOT:

Slot Parlor Opponents - Folks in Worcester have come out in force to oppose the ill-defined slot project. At each Council meeting and public forum, opponents are organized and on message. 

Neil Diamond - No one has been classier than Neil, who surprised Boston with a visit and a song. The outcome was big healing and Navas' 3-run homer.

Rep. Stephen Lynch - He may be an old-school Union guy, but he is a street fighter and even though he is down a few million in fundraising, Lynch is brawling his way to next Tuesday's primary. Hard to win a statewide race in any state when you get outspent 2-1 or 3-1, but Lynch is making a game of it.

No Slots Social Media - If the slots parlor team is looking to win the social media media crowd, they have their work to do. On Facebook they are getting beat 5-1 by those opposing the slot parlor.  

Deval Patrick - In the face of a stressful terrorism attack, the exiting Governor has looked downright "Presidential."

Clark University - Selected by the Princeton Review as one of the Greenest Colleges in America. 

NOT HOT:

Mass Gaming & Entertainment LLC, an affiliate of Rush Street Gaming LLC - Did they get the memo that the burden was on them to convince folks that this is a good idea? Playing the game heavy-handed and seem to be focusing not on public opinion but on working the inside game at the council. Public seems to building big momentum against the project.

Telegram - Are they really the community newspaper when nearly all of their coverage of the bombing is warmed-over Associated Press stories? On Thursday, seven stories and seven written by the

Associated Press. (P.S. Last week we made GoLocalWorcester not hot for following an Associated Press story which proved to be in correct).

GOP US Senate Candidates - We keep hearing crickets! Can one of the three candidates take a significant stand on something, anything?  Are these three conservatives, moderates or liberals? Do they have tax policies? Would they have voted for cloture on the gun legislation? Do they want the death penalty for terrorists? If you have a primary and no one shows up to vote, do the results count?
