Blog Blitz Part III

Lynne from Left in Lowell has posted her interview with Deval Patrick. She's offered up the entire transcript of her conversation, and it's very definitely worth checking out. Here's what she has to say about it:

Deval Patrick is nothing if not ambitious. From health care to public education, job creation and public transit, he has a lot of sound ideas on how to reverse some of the negative trends in this state. Make no mistake, it’ll take some doing. He advocates, for instance, smaller class sizes and longer school days (not just classroom, but other school-related activities). He wants to move towards universal health care coverage, whether that’s privately or publicly funded or both. He has some ambitious ideas about investing in transit infrastructure to help ease housing costs (and presumably, attract some of those fleeing businesses).
