A lively morning discussion with Ted Panos at WCAP, who had a great interview with Senator Scott Brown, who was coming to Methuen that morning. We talked about the Senate race, the campaign finance issues around Rep. Paul Adams, Lt Governor Tim Murray, whether local officials have been requested to release their tax information, and of course the first in what we hope will be many anonymous letters to Ted. (purporting to out me because I am eligible to receive a state pension). Some attorneys have nothing better to do than send anonymous letters.
As far as the pension issue goes the letter was prompted by my advocating for pension reform, which I do without regard to how it might impact any future pension I may be eligible for. It is a clever tactic to divert attention away from the need for fundamental reform to a system that is not sustainable as currently constituted.
Looking forward to next Friday’s radio appearance on WCAP, 980 on the am dial, where everyone gets it. Tune in at 8:10 a.m.
