There is something enormously attractive about a candidate who has spent much of her career in the business world and then decides it’s time to give back to the community through public service.So, the Herald endorsed Chris Gabrieli. Oh, wait, scratch that... they endorsed Tom Reilly. Curious to know just who the hell the Herald was referring to in my quote?
Now, come on, I like Deborah Goldberg, but that quote is just absurd. For months, I was leaning toward her. But then I decided I had to decide between the other two candidates; one who gave "back to the community" in the form of getting women jobs - Andrea Silbert - or the other who "scores high" on "trust, leadership and experience" - Tim Murray.
There is something enormously attractive about a candidate who has spent much of her career in the business world and then decides it’s time to give back to the community through public service. And that above all else describes Deborah Goldberg’s career path that today puts her in the three-way race for lieutenant governor in the Democratic primary. (Emphasis mine.)
Except, scoring high on "trust, leadership and experience" is how the Herald described Tom Reilly. You know, the guy who lied about and showed incompetence in choosing Marie St. Fluer - which was a perfect example of how one can have a lot of experience, but gain nothing in the form of trust and leadership from it.
But at least the chuckles don't stop at the Herald. I mean, they just loved Tom Reilly at the debate... showing just how shockingly out of touch the Herald is. The Herald should just be honest with its readers and say the truth - they support Kerry Healey.
