Businessman versus career politician? Easy choice.

Steve is a job creator, not a typical Beacon Hill politician.

I like that he's a small businessman, not a professional pol.

I am supporting Steve Grossman because he is a lifelong businessman, and he has great ideas for creating jobs.

Steve Grossman is the right person for the job. At a time of great change, his business experience will be critical to the role of treasurer.

I don't care for Polito's political views in general.

I'm for Karyn Politio. She is a smart and lovely woman and is exactly what is needed right now. This is just one reason of many that I am for Karyn, all the way.

'NO PENSIONS FOR POLITICIANS'
As a result of our unfunded pension obligations, Massachusetts taxpayers are required to pay about $1.4 billion each year to make up the difference in the system, which translates to a liability of about $1,000 for every household across the state. Those costs are only expected to grow over time. If we could eliminate this unfunded liability, we would have enough money to not only roll back the sales tax to 5.0%, but almost double the amount of unrestricted local aid we pay to cities and towns every year. More local aid means fewer layoffs of police, firefighters and teachers.
With every change there needs to be a first step.
I think the process of reforming our pension system needs to start with forbidding newly-elected state officials from receiving a state pension.

This one, simple step will go a long way to taking the politics out of our pension system. It will substitute sound, objective reasoning when it comes to deciding benefits as opposed to the self-interest that we see in all too many cases.

We need to return to the citizen government our founding fathers intended, one where public service is a privilege and not a ticket to ‘retirement riches’. To demonstrate my conviction in this regard, I will make myself ineligible to take a public pension by withdrawing all my past contributions from the state pension system and placing them in a private retirement account.

The Beacon Hill Insider Ms Polito is changing her tune because she thinks it's what we want to hear. Steve is the right person for this job!

Says it all. He's a Democratic operative who will be rewarding all his Dem pals with no show jobs. Karyn is honest. She is a business woman. And, most importantly, she is a Republican in the midst of a Democratic stranglehold!
