Although I am a lifelong Massachusetts Democrat, I once made the mistake of voting for Mitt Romney (back “home” after saving the Olympics), and though I was hopeful, I almost immediately began to regret my vote–as did thousands of other Democrats who crossed party lines as well as independents and even some Republicans who realized how much he let our Commonwealth down. The show is an indictment of Romney’s term in office, and is an excellent counterpoint to all the boasting that he has done about all that he supposedly did for our state.” I feel strongly that studying Governor Romney’s record in Massachusetts is important if one is to understand what he might do if he were elected President. It is important to note that earlier in his campaign, Mitt Romney asserted, “If people want to know what I stand for, they can look at my record as Governor.” Consequently, I explore Governor Romney’s record in Massachusetts in the following four areas: jobs and the economy, education, women’s issues, and leadership style.
The Show is entitled “Won’t Get Fooled Again: Romney’s Record as Massachusetts Governor.” I am a retired Massachusetts teacher and principal, a professional photographer, a husband and father, and a political blogger. I have become very active in state and local politics since joining the Athol Democratic Committee this year. I produced the eleven-minute slideshow which features a quite a number of my award-winning Massachusetts photographs in order to spotlight Mitt Romney’s record as governor of Massachusetts.
