The State Rep seat in East Boston is really heating up and we might all be in for a suprise come election day. I had a chance to sit down with Gloribell Mota for coffee the other day and was pretty blown away. I saw her through my window talking to one of my neighbors so when she got to my house I had some coffee waiting and invited her in. she is extremely personable, energetic, charismatic and really understands Eastie and has some good ideas on how to move us forward. I’m not a policy wonk but can pick a winner when I see one. She made me feel like she knew exactly what I was going through and my wife thought she was extremely compassionate and understanding. I want to be clear: I have a Basile sign in my window on Bremen street and i like the kid. I respect his family and his work but i haven’t seen someone with a grip on the issues that isn’t some 24 year old policy wonk with a rich mommy and daddy from Oregon who moved here for college and decided to stay. She going to go places and I look forward to helping her in the future. Also, to Jeff and Mary: be careful, you never know what someone will do when they get in that PRIVATE booth.
