Kerry Healey, who served as lieutenant governor of Massachusetts under Mitt Romney, just gave a passionate speech about Romney’s accomplishments as governor.
Healey (for whom I interned when she ran for lieutenant governor) presented an impressive list:
Romney built a great cabinet full of talented people, half of whom were women.
He closed the state’s budget gap and ran up a large rainy day fund.
He improved education, cut taxes, presided over low unemployment and got the state a credit upgrade.
He served breakfast to veterans, declined his gubernatorial salary, and ably handled a crisis when the ceiling of a highway tunnel collapsed in Boston.
This is a pretty accurate summary of Romney’s service as governor that does not omit any of his major accomplishments or policy initiatives.
