Cindy Creem

Reforms likely to pass the Senate but not Robert DeLeo’s House of Representatives.

Following Sunday’s Globe exposé of patronage hires at the Probation Department, and yesterday’s move by the Supreme Judicial Court to suspend Probation Commissioner O’Brien, the Senate today proposed a budget amendment to reform some the Probation Department’s most egregious  structural problems, with a proposal that reduces some of the Legislature’s influence in Probation Department hiring.

Ross Wins!

Lack of Democratic Support and Divisive Primary Costs Smulowitz

Richard Ross defeated progressive newcomer Peter Smulowitz by a decisive margin.

In the best of circumstances this was going to be a tough election for Democrats to win. The sourthern part of the district is heavily Republican. Scott Brown defeated Martha Coakley here by margins of 4-1 in many places. Had the Democracts been behind Smulowitz – it would have been possible to win with a lot of hard work.

Bob "Monty" Thomas

Robert Montgomery Thomas has reached out to us with a statement on why he’s running for state Representative in Weymouth. Mr. Thomas has run for this representative seat several times, and for Weymouth Mayor. His statement is interesting reading, and gives some insight into Weymouth politics. We also have a video from his 2007 run for Weymouth Mayor.

In response to your March 14 blog “Rep. James Murphy Has Many Challengers in Weymouth”, which I came across by accident, I would like to add my comments and some much-needed clarification. My name is Bob Montgomery Thomas, the non-Party candidate for state rep in Weymouth. Read the rest of this entry »

Rep. Michael Rodrigues is hoping to move up to Senate. He’s got a fantastic campaign warchest, but at least for now Michael Coogan seems to be running a better and more dynamic campaign. The other three candidates don’t really seem to have their campaigns off the ground yet and so don’t seem like much of a threat yet.
