Murray Getting a Shot at the Governor’s Chair

Filed in Lifestyle by on August 7, 2009 0 Comments


Worcester’s own Lieutenant Governor Murray is expected to take over for a couple of days in September to address any “time sensitive” issues that may come up while Patrick is in the hospital.  Governor Patrick is going in for hip replacement surgery at the beginning of September so he will be out of commission for a couple of days.   We’re sure Murray is up to the task.

Governor Patrick and Lieutenant Governor Murray are revving up for what promises to be a tight race with perceived front runner Charles Baker.  Governor Patrick is getting the important hip surgery out of the way so that he will be ready for the election.

Murray has not shied away from commenting on the upcoming governors race with Charlie Baker.  In a press release from his website he states:

“Charlie Baker is nothing more than an overcompensated insurance executive who placed profits over patients at the expense of hard working families and employers in Massachusetts. That’s the real ‘calamity.’
“If you look up ‘crisis’ in the dictionary, you’ll find a picture of Baker and a narrative on the Big Dig financing scheme, which Baker signed off on as Administration and Finance Secretary. Baker’s scheme put the Turnpike Authority and the MBTA into bankruptcy by loading it up with debt that Massachusetts’ taxpayers will be paying for years to come.
“If you’re a fan of higher insurance premiums, you’ll like Charlie Baker, and if you’re a fan of the Big Digfinancing and record debt, you’ll love Charlie Baker.”

If that’s not coming out swinging I don’t know what is!
