Charlie Baker made a rare visit to the SouthCoast Wednesday and unwisely used his time to deride the SouthCoast rail project and mock its supporters in the region for wanting to become ‘a spoke of Boston.’
Remember this is the same Charlie Baker who created the Big Dig financing scheme that sucked all of the money – like a giant vaccuum cleaner – away from projects like SouthCoast rail.
Interestingly when Jack Spillane asks Baker if he was referring to SouthCoast rail with his “mini-Big Digs” comment last week on Fox25 – Baker says 'no', and refuses to budge when pushed.
if Baker was not talking about SouthCoast rail with his “mini Big Digs” reference, which project(s) was he talking about? Hopefully someone will get an answer out of him on this … at some point.
