    I am independent voter and when Patrick and Romney ran the T, they did not properly make the repairs on the system. I did vote for Baker and I was hoping he would learn what the T needed, to get fixed. I also was hoping he , would work with the unions to properly address the failed management over the last 20years. after decades of poor funding and management now looking better .. will take several years to get things fixed.

    so the DIMM GOV candidate now looks like a Patrick clone .. gonna raise taxes give free stuff to low income people and take the funding from the T..
    also he did say he is gonna increase spending in the Billions everything free ..

    If you liked how Patrick ran the T then vote for that guy.
    The Dimms that are representing us in congress all , want to impeach politicians that do not agree with their views… that is not how our goverment should work !

    Senator LIZ well I did vote for her, but she is not for the people of Massachusetts its all about her $$$. not this time !

    So Maura Healy huh? The woman hasn’t done squat about our pay issues! That is her job! It’s the law and she is more concerned with political issues. No thanks!
