Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito took their oaths of office today at the State House in front of the members of the House and Senate and hundreds more in the House Chamber gallery.
In addition to the many policy maters that I know we will work on together I also thank each of them for their straight-forward approach to governing and their purposeful and civil engagement.
From the Governor's remarks today: “As we approach the third decade of the 21st century, we’re engaged in a number of difficult policy issues. Some will be with us long after our time on Beacon Hill is done.
“But it’s incumbent on us to pursue these tasks with foresight, intelligence and commitment, so that we can rest assured that when our time is done, those who come after us will be able to build on the foundation we’ve established.
“As I look forward, I’m grateful that we’re taking on difficult policy issues from a position of strength."
