We all know President Barack Obama and Governor Deval Patrick are longtime friends, but what we don’t know is whether or not the Governor is going to eventually take a position within the president’s administration. There are new rumors swirling around the State House today that Governor Patrick is on the short list to replace Tom Daschle as the health and human services secretary. Of course, while that rumor is going around, the Governor is in California trying to persuade businesses to come to the Bay State.
So, what’s the deal is he staying or is he going? Because, if he is staying we need him here focusing on the real task at hand, which is getting Massachusetts’ economy moving again.
Now, more than ever, Massachusetts deserves a Governor that is focused on Massachusetts.
