Nice job Jim continuing to keep this up to date. I like the addition of those links on the right. Helpful to have easy access to those state sites. I notice that no one is commenting on the Richardson posting. My thoughts on that; no one gives a damm about what she says or what she talks about. Nice that you put it here so we can all see how useless her information is though! Keep up the good work.

The links give us a well documented look at who finically supports the candidates OCPF, under "view reports, Candidates and Campaigns". Anyone from anywhere in the State can pick there reps files to look over.

While most would agree, as I do, what Pam, Dave, Karen or Tom have to say, keep one thing in mind when reading the OCPF web site, the people and groups that will get more funds (stimulus) are the reps biggest donators. Evidence of that appears in the Democratic Daily News (MWDN) where it is reported that Metro West is not getting any stimulus money for shovel ready projects. No projects were approved in Natick, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, Ashland, Marlboro, Northboro, Westborough, Southboro and Hudson. This unjust act is governed by the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization.

Karen saying "we don't have any clout there".

Secondly, fair or not, Pam, Dave Lynski,and Karen are now on committees that have oversight of such things like stimulus money spending. It is crucial for us to keep tabs on what Pam, Karen and David any saying or not saying. Metro West should not be punished just because we have poor representation on the Hill. There's a bunch of projects that could be done here and I'm pissed that our Reps have not stood up for us.

JIm, you need to be more vocal about the fact that Framingham is not getting any money for shovel ready projects. We are a big city, in need of much infrastructure work. Why are we not benefiting from these funds? How come that little tidbit of informationis not included in Richardson's email newsletter? I think that goes beyond not mentioning and into the realm of misrepresentation. What the hell are the doing in the little bit of time they spend at the State House if it is not trying to get some funding for our community? People should know this, and those lousy reps should be help accountable!
