In the crowded (5 Dems and 2 GOP sorts) for MA Senate 3rd Middlesex to replace Susan Fargo, Joe Kearns Goodwin says he has the consensus-building and problem-identifying/solving background to lead in the job. He joined us today to describe his personality, abilities, and aims.
Click below to listen in as he he hits his positions on health care, higher education, job growth, taxes and more. You can also get a rudimentary sense of him at his campaign site. He noted though that it is new and about to be enhanced with a fleshed out platform and more very soon.
We touched first on his well known parents as well as his unusual post-Ivy service on two war fronts following 9/11. He also spoke of how much working for U.S. Sen. Paul Wellstone, who taught him how you can accomplish much in public office while saying what you really think and not compromising on fundamental beliefs.
Listen in as he describes his ideas for increasing employment in MA, reducing health-care costs, supporting businesses, seeing that our workers have the skills for jobs here.
