The most leftest newspaper in the country, the Boston Globe has endorsed Republican Charlie Baker over the Democrat party favorite Martha, Coakley?
Effective activist government isn’t built on good intentions. To provide consistently good results, especially for the state’s most vulnerable and troubled residents, agencies need to focus on outcomes, learn from their errors, and preserve and replicate approaches that succeed. Baker, a former health care executive, has made a career of doing just that. During this campaign, he has focused principally on making state government work better. The emphasis is warranted. And in that spirit, the Globe endorses Charlie Baker for governor.
Interestingly the endorsement isn’t about political philosophy, but about leadership and experience skills. We haven’t been following the race all that closely, but this has come as somewhat of a surprise to us.
