Even a broken clock is right twice a day:
In the three-way Democratic field, Deb Goldberg is the one candidate who best fits that description.
Her background has been an interesting mix of the private and public sectors, of community involvement, political and philanthropic activism. Yes, she has a law degree from Boston College and an MBA from Harvard, but she also learned the family business — her family founded the Stop & Shop chain — from the ground up.
While the Boston Herald Editorial Board is far from my favor source for opinion making, they got this one right.
She supports the kind of transparency Grossman brought to the office with Open Checkbook and insists she is committed to making it work more efficiently.
The Lottery, the School Building Assistance fund, even the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission are all part of the treasurer’s portfolio. And while too much of this campaign has focused on such touchy-feely programs as financial literacy and student loans, there is already plenty for the treasurer to do and Democrats have in Deb Goldberg an able candidate to tackle the job.
