Deval in Natick last night.. did anyone know?

Deval's campaign is in full swing, stopping by the Natick Library last night to roll out "Embrace Your Future" as a feel good program for planning early for long term medical care. If you are interested in knowing more about this program you can get a flier from, or by calling 1.866.PLAN-LC.

Deval is also pushing for more pension reform, capping annual benefits at 85K and increasing the retirement age, change the formula for pension calculations. Some of the provisions would apply to new and current state employees, while others would only apply to new employees.

I doubt that anything will come of this maneuver, as we all witnessed what happened when he pushed for pension reform before. Any reasonable proposal by the Governor has been cut down by the Legislator, and this one will be no exception. It effects to many of the ruling party.

He is still claiming, local aid will not be reduced this year. Common sense tells me that this just can't happen. The State is in a bigger hole now and when stimulus money is gone, we face very real deficits. Even Senate Pres Murray stated that the 2011 budget will be the worst ever.
