900 More Jobs Lost: Chairman Johnston, Gabrieli, Patrick, Reilly call for Real Leadership


More than 900 Massachusetts residents lost their jobs last month, highlighting the failure of Governor Mitt Romney and Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey to follow through on their campaign pledge to grow jobs.

“These latest job numbers are no surprise given that the Romney-Healey administration’s top priority has been moving from the Corner Office to the Oval Office,” said Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman Phil Johnston. “The people of Massachusetts are desperately seeking the kind of leader who will make job growth a real priority, not an empty campaign promise.”

The Democratic candidates for Governor joined Chairman Johnston in calling for new leadership that will be committed to creating jobs and growing the economy.

“We’re 46th in the nation in job creation, and people are leaving Massachusetts in droves because Mitt Romney and Kerry Healey are not getting results on job creation,” said Chris Gabrieli.

“The Romney-Healey administration doesn’t get it: every time we lose jobs and population, we lose our competitive edge,” said Deval Patrick. “They have a terrible record of attracting and keeping jobs in our state. Even as the national unemployment rate improves, Massachusetts keeps slipping behind. What Romney and Healey see as numbers, I see as people, people caught up in an unforgiving market with an uncaring government. It’s time for a change.”

"Massachusetts is better than this. With respect to job creation, Mitt Romney and Kerry Healey have been all talk and no action," Attorney General Tom Reilly said. "It is time for new, proven leadership to get this economy moving again.”

Nationwide, more citizens are headed back to work, while Massachusetts residents continue to struggle. The loss of 900 jobs forced the state’s unemployment rate up again, the fourth month in a row that the Massachusetts rate was above that of the national rate. Previously, Massachusetts had not seen its unemployment rate surpass the national rate in more than a decade.

If the Democrats win they'll be more jobs in the state, problem will be they will all be state jobs and they'll give them to all their relatives like sheriff Flynn did at the Worcester County jail.

Mass has one of the HIGHEST cost of doing business of ANY state!

Who is passing these taxes and regulations that have made people and business flee this Socialist dump?

I'm with Gabrieli, casinos creat jobs and bring in money. Stem cell research is important for the young children and other people that have to live with debilitating diseases, that could potentionaly be cured. The elderly are suffering on fixed incomes while property taxes and gass prices are rising.I think this is the man for the job. I met him and the other candidates. I liked Gabrieli the most, hes a genuine guy and he is going to win. The state needs Gabrieli and the democrats need Gabrieli.

Morons....What difference will Gabrielli make? When Fidelity and other companies WISELY left or are looking to leave this rotten state they of course took into account:

Local Taxes
High Utility Costs
High Unemployment Costs
State Taxes
High Insurance costs
The fact the state is LOSING educated young workers to the South

Name ONE Democratic candidate who will LOWER taxes and the costs to do business in this far left state?

Putting aside Politics why in the name of common sense would a company - stem cell, finanacial, or whatever- WANT AND CHOOSE to do business in the 2nd MOST EXPENSIVE, regulated and taxed state in the universe?


THEY ARE LEAVING and the Democrats in power CONTINUE to make Mass the HIGHEST COSTING STATE TO RUN A BUSINESS IN!Are you idiots still saying its the Republicans passing this crap? If so - SHOW ME THE LINKS !

What part do you dull knives not get? is tis too hard to comprehend?

The republicans dont have good ideas in this state . Name one if you know one. Keary Healy is all your party has to offer. In other words nothing.Gabrieli is the less liberal of them all and has buisness savy and ideas. He has my vote. Like he said it dont matter if it is a republican idea or a democrats idea as long as its a good idea. That is what we need, and we have needed for a long time.
