The new Gov. elect of Massachusetts Deval Patrick is planning his coronation extravaganza. Instead of an inaugural ball, he’s having seven. And to show that corporate endowments have no effect on him, he will accept corporate donations of up to $50,000. Each. The Gov. elect promised the events will be very inclusive. That is, if you pay the $50 for the ball. Make sure your fairy godmother give you some cash before you step into the carriage.
All in all, the inaugural committee is planning to spend more than $1 million on the events.
Somebody is happy. (“Mom and Dad, I made it!”)
There is always more jobs to cut and more taxes to raise.
