Romney Courting Problems in Construction Reform

Willard Mitt wants to revamp the court system by reducing the number of facilities throughout the Commonwealth. The Fraud Governor wants to consolidate the present 116-facility network into 20 regional justice centers. (source: Boston Globe, 12/15/2003)

Team Reform claims that under their new construct, ‘virtually every resident would be within fifteen miles of a courthouse.’

Unless we have no sense of 'radial math,' (we always respond to our readers) that means a lot of new construction.

And Angry Eric “Human Triage” Kriss wants to strike Ward Commission-era enacted public construction laws and place controlling interest back in the hands of the “trust me, I’m from the government and I’m here to help” project owners.

That means a lot of general contractors will be looking for a lot of new construction.

Team Reform may have to schedule a whole new round of State House breakfast thank-you receptions.

Angry Eric’s 'I have a dream' speech about the evils of public construction laws was silted with quotes from John F. Kennedy, including this non-sequitur about looking “forward to an America which will not be afraid of grace and beauty, which will protect the beauty of our natural environment, which will preserve the great old American houses and squares and parks of our national past and which will build handsome and balanced cities for our future.” (source: EOAF, “Balanced Cities,” 12/15/2003)

What this has to do with public construction reform is beyond us.

But we’d like to suggest a new phrase that Angry Eric and Willard Mitt can use the next time they want to tell us how their construction over-haul will help make Massachusetts a better place to live and work:

"Ich bin ein Fraud."
