Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick

This post is going to be short and sweet. It's official! Deval Patrick is our new Governor!

I've done a bunch of posts about my volunteer work, but I thought that the big day was deserving of something too.

Everyone seems shocked that I'm not going to the inauguration or any of the festivities, but I've had my fill of crowds for a while. I'm very happy to enjoy this day from a distance. Today is a good day.

People have good things to say about Gov. Patrick, incl a former coworker who lives in Springfield.
And a big yay to you for the volunteer work you did!
A lot of credit goes to the ppl of MA who voted for him as well.

aulelia - Welcome! I was just one of the thousands who volunteered as part of his grass-roots campaign. I mostly made phone calls, but the most exciting thing for me was being a Delegate for him at the State Democratic Convention. I really felt like I was part of the process.

sanjay - He is pretty amazing! In case anyone is interested, here is a link to the text of his speech today.

asha - It is wonderful! And I truly admire his vision for the future.

wheresmymind - You and seemingly everyone I know!

gunfighter - Yippee!!

A good day for Mass.
Nancy Pelosi was sworn in today too!
That made me very happy!
A good day all around!
Happy new year, Anali!
Hope it's a great one for you!

It's about freaking time! (On so many levels.)

Let's just hope the other recent governor does not wage a successful run for the White House. *shudder*

samuru999 - It's a good day for the history books! Happy New Year!

karrie - I'm really surprised that Romney has set up his headquarters here. I thought he would leave the state! Oh well. Let's hope his candidacy dies an early death.

sai - Thank you!

punditmom - Definitely!
