June 1, 2010

TV Diner‘s Billy Costa has been interviewing the gubernatorial candidates about their favorite local restaurants and meals.  Below is the link to Charlie Baker’s appearance, which features the candidate washing down a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a chocolate milkshake at Watertown’s Deluxe Town Diner.

Hmmmm….When Tim Cahill was on, he feasted on linguini frutti de mare at chi chi North End eatery, Maurizio’s. So, remind me again which candidate is more in touch with working class voters?

A Bold New Leadership Reception in honor of Republican Nominee State Senator Scott Brown, candidate for US Senate, was held January 6 at Taj Boston with special guest Charlie Baker, candidate for governor in 2010. Senator Scott Brown of Wrentham, a three-term state senator representing Norfolk, Bristol and Middlesex districts is running for the seat left vacant by the the late Senator Ted Kennedy.
Senator Brown is against wasteful government spending and higher taxes. Senator Brown is a decorated member of the Massachussetts Army National Gaurd serving for 30 years, holds the rank of Lt. Colonel in the Judge Advocate  General’s Corps (JAG) and was awarded Army Commendation Medal for meritorius service in homeland security following terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 2001. Scott Brown believes a strong military and vigorous homeland defense will protect our interests and security around the world and at home, especially now, following the Christmas Day incident with Al Queida aboard a Delta flight.
Among the supporters attending the evening were Asian Americans For Brown, led by Kumu Gupta, ward 1 chair of the Quincy Republicans and Joseph Wong of the MA Asian American Republican Association. Also in attendance were Jennifer Nassour, chair of Massachussetts GOP and Jody Dow,  national committeewoman of the RNC (Republican National Committee) who came up  from Washington DC for the event.
The race for the US Senate seat  is a crucial one, given the important issues facing the state and the country and will come down to voter turn out on Jan 19th as the gap between Senator Brown and Attorney General Martha Coakley rapidly shrinks,  with some polls giving the senator a sharp edge.
