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

Friday, June 14, 2013

 

Every Friday, GoLocalWorcester takes a look at who's rising and falling in the Massachusetts political world. This week we focus on Bill Clinton, Lakes, Ed Markey and rain - yes rain.

HOT

Carol Claros --> She kicks off her campaign for State Representative with a big fundraiser at Nuovo Restraunt on June 18th from 7 pm to 9 pm. This event is a good test for moderates and the GOP to demonstrate they are serious about winning a winnable seat.

President Obama --> The biggest gun came to the Commonwealth to throw support for Ed Markey. The Democratic Congressman is in a tough fight for the Senate seat previously held by John Kerry.

King Worcester Foodie --> GoLocal's feature on Scott Erb captures the essense of the man and his passion about food. His euphoria for the food in Central MA is another great boost to the emerging restaurant market.

Governor Paul Cellucci --> A class act as Lt. Governor, Governor and Ambassador, but distinguished himself beyond peers for his grace and class in his battle against ALS. Now, that's a legacy.

Ed Markey --> The Suffolk Poll released this week is good news for the embattled Congressman.  The poll show Markey up 7%, 48% to 41% for GOP contender Gabriel Gomez. 

Bill Clinton --> Worcester gets the big visit from the former President, who may also be the most popular Democrat in the U.S. Clinton's visit will energize the central MA Democrats who have been uninterested in the Markey campaign.

Fathers --> This Sunday is Father's Day. Send a note, drop a line or take the old guy out for brunch or golf. 

NOT HOT 

Polluted Lakes and Ponds --> Many of the most beautiful waterbodies in Central Mass are scored in the Category 5 by MA DEP. The state, businesses and citizens need to be more vigilant to correct and reverse these highly polluted waters.

Rain --> We all know we need it for the green lawns and drinking water, but this is getting a bit old. Can we turn the faucet down a bit and get into summer?

Worcester Cynicism --> Worcester scores well for creation of science and technology jobs in a recent report released by the Washington, DC-based Brookings Institute and the comments on social media were one of disbelief coupled with negativity.  Worcester, with a little leadership, could be uniquely positioned to dramatically grow these high-paying, forward-focused jobs.
