Today in Worcester Political News

But wait!  There’s more!
The rumor mill is spinning with the names of at least three elected officials who might be interested in the seat.
There’s another who might be interested, but — alas — that person might have to admit to living in one residence while registering to vote at another in order to qualify for this race.  Tant pis!
And the REAL news is the best gif we wish were related to Worcester politics (but, sadly, is not):

  1. There are the city councilors and state reps who use their jobs to resolve personal gripes and other way of exerting power in a district.

    There are the ones who say the right things, make the right friends, keep their noses clean and–most importantly!–make no enemies.

    what exactly is the “Council of the Presidents” anyway? (did I just step into a pile of poo that want it FEELS like)

    Does the expansion of the state teachers colleges to the state colleges to state university really just expand the bureaucracy and the guaranteed public sector job base and votes for the always expanding. always expanding, Democratic state–in the bluest and most bloated state in the country?

    It doesn’t matter what the tuition is at the state colleges, MA believes the majority will will continue to accept taxation without representation as the “state college industry” expands like some crazy, out of control hoarder from a reality TV show. That’s how a lot of us feel about state government top to bottom.

    That is, unless he takes on the real chore of attaching education degrees with true economic futures for our young people and for our state.

    is he capable of that kind of leadership? is anyone?

  2. Ummm, VP’s pretty much becoming a lobbyist for the state universities. If you’re going to be vocal in your opinions of state government, you can at least recognize that it’s made up of a huge number of divisons/depts/systems that compete with one another for resources. Looking at the worthiness of these parts, I don’t think the state university system rates too low.

    Also, cut the guy some slack. Is a lobbyist really going to “take on the chore of attaching education degrees with true economic futures,” or even to display leadership. The best we can hope for is that he limits cuts in funding.
