Media Alert: On the Air with Fox 25 Tonight

Earlier today, I was interviewed by Fox 25 reporter Sharman Sacchetti about Governor Patrick’s proposal to implement spending cuts and borrow money from the Rainy Day account to close an estimated $540 million shortfall in the state budget. We also discussed the Governor’s plan to ask the Legislature for expanded 9C powers to cut local aid, and why I think the state must instead aggressively pursue a variety of options to spur economic growth and hold communities harmless. Be sure to tune in to Fox 25’s 6 p.m., 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts to see the interview.
