In case you missed it, the Boston Globe editorial page had a terrific piece today explaining how Massachusetts residents can help rebuild a two-party system. That’s right - the Boston Globe is encouraging Bay State residents to vote Republican on Tuesday. Why you ask? The Boston Globe says, “Having more Republicans in the Legislature will make Democrats more responsive, and diminish the power of Speaker Robert DeLeo and Senate President Therese Murray, whose stranglehold on legislation can frustrate the best intentions of any governor.”
The editorial board also says, “There is a significant opportunity on Tuesday to promote sound tax policy, increase accountability, and restore some needed balance in both branches of the Legislature.”
We’ve been saying all along that the only way to change Beacon Hill is to change the faces. Kudos to the Globe for taking a page out of our memo!
