We complete our chats with those who would be Massachusetts treasurer with Karyn Polito. Join us at 2 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, May 19th for the live stream here. If you can’t catch it live, listen later at that URL or here on Left Ahead.
Polito has been in the House for nine years. She is a Republican who became her party’s candidate at its recent convention.
She makes it clear she is “a fiscal conservative.” She has already set herself up as opposed to Dem candidate Steve Grossman’s call for an activist role for the office. Assuming Dem Steve Murphy gets on the primary ballot at the party convention next month, she’ll be up against the winner of that contest in the November general. She has no GOP opposition.
Polito’s Priorities on her campaign site are fairly general so far. We’ll ask her to expand on how she wants to implement her calls for 1) accountability and transparency, 2) fiscal responsibility, 3) basics, 4) leadership by example, and 5) security, stability and trust.
