More details of the meeting between Charlie Baker and Paul Loscocco reported by the Globe. As we are all aware, Loscocco secretly met with Baker without the knowledge of Loscocco’s running mate and candidate for governor Tim Cahill.
Baker and Loscocco had a face-to-face meeting in a private room at the Seaport Hotel. It was reported that Baker attended the meeting with two of his top lieutenants. Loscocco attended with John Yob of Strategic National, a national Republican consulting firm that at one time worked on the Cahill campaign and Jason Zanetti who the Globe describes as a “Republican operative”. Here’s an interesting quote from the Globe story:
Baker and Loscocco met privately for about 20 minutes, before they sat down with their aides to work out details of the announcement, Baker campaign officials said.
So what exactly did Baker and Loscocco discuss in private?
What I don’t understand is why would Charlie Baker who is running on a platform stating that he wants to change the culture on Beacon Hill attend a secret meeting in a private room in a posh waterfront hotel. Kind of sounds like business as usual on Beacon Hill.
