Blue Mass Group is the most widely read independent political blog in New England.
The site was founded in 2004 by David Kravitz, Bob Neer and Charley Blandy to provide reality-based commentary on politics and policy in Massachusetts and around the nation. David and Bob have moved on; Charley is the remaining editor to whom all complaints should be addressed.
Blandy graduated from Oberlin College with a degree in religion, and received a Master of Music degree from Indiana University. He is a professional classical singer who has performed widely in the Boston area and throughout the US. He also teaches voice. He is married with two children, and lives in Arlington.
