Editors note: Please take a few moments to read this excellent profile of Downing in the Berkshire Eagle. Definitely worth your time. I added the video below to this post. – CB
Ben Downing is running for Governor on a platform very similar to what I laid out on Saturday as what we want from our best nominee. Taking the fight directly to Baker on his lack of leadership to move the state forward. He’s great at keeping us stuck in place, not so great at moving us forward. Downing is a former state senator from Western MA, currently based in East Boston. He was interviewed on NBC Boston. I asked a friend who is a supporter of his if Ben has the cajones to take the fight to Baker directly and if he can appeal to independents. Those are my two litmus tests.
