The avowed activist treasurer candidate, Steve Grossman joined us today. He has a very fresh and different take on the role of the commonwealth’s money person.
Listen in the hear his view of how that office should use the power of MA’s money and a bully pulpit to the benefit of the commonwealth and its citizens. He describes his detailed six-part proposal to create jobs, get financial institutions lending and much more.
We figure this should make for some intriguing debates. He put his ideas and direction right out on the table. He has one Republican and one Democrat contender for the office. We haven’t seen a response yet, but he says he isn’t worried that he has set himself up by showing all his cards so early.
To do justice to all he thinks the treasurer can help happen to make us flourish out of this great recession, you need to hear him.
