It is better to vote for what you want

The T requires billions in new capital and management reform. Only systemic restructuring can obtain that and ensure it is effectively spent, otherwise decline is likely to continue. - promoted by Bob_Neer

Facts on the ground: the essential Patrick legacy

The implementation of Chapter 58 (up until last year's Connector disaster) was a great triumph that affected a lot of people. Marriage equality, which I doubt would have passed without his leadership. Also the Life Sciences bond bill which was a game changer for the industry and was part of the revival of a now-booming Worcester. Under-appreciated is the fact that the state made it through the Great Recession without the most devastating cuts, and with our bond rating intact, because he and the legislature were willing to raise taxes. That kind of non-dogmatic thinking, combined with the attitude of playing to our strengths, has served us well. - promoted by charley-on-the-mta
