Charlie wants to make the state "more friendly for business" there at least he has a superlative record. Back when Weld was the darling of the Globe's Op Ed page Charlie and the admin did their best to ensure that Bechtel Parsons got very friendly treatment indeed from the Commonwealth as the cost of the Big Dig went up and up and up.
Indeed, Charlie kept his lips zipped as Bill Weld and Penniless Paul Cellucci went claghorning all over the state insisting the Big Dig's costs were under control and that Bechtel Parsons as prime contractor thereon was the honestest outfit going.
Only the Glory Days of Dick Leche in Louisiana can beat a record like that.
Ah but this is mere snarkage, in larger sense, there seems to be a contradiction at the heart of Baker's platform he promises to do everything that Governor Patrick has been forced to do to keep the budget in line but do it painlessly and with a tax cut and all the usual rubbish thrown on top as well.
Like I said, a contradiction...
