Job Growth in MA

More people are working in MA now than before Romney took office, the Boston Globe reported today.

June's job gains added to evidence that the Massachusetts' recovery may finally have gained traction. In the last three months, the state gained nearly 13,000 jobs, compared to about 4,000 in the previous three months. Over the last year, Massachusetts employers have boosted payrolls by more than 27,000 jobs.

Lower taxes and decreased spending generally effects most economies in a positive manner, that's the bigger news for Massachusens today.

And make no mistake about it, these are not burger flipper jobs (no disrespect intended, I love burgers)

Professional and business services, one of the state's leading employment sectors, led job gains with 2,200. That sector has added 7,800 jobs in the last year. Another key sector, financial services, added 500 jobs, its sixth consecutive monthly gain.

Romney is definitly proving himself to be an keen economic mind, and people in MA are feeling the effects. To quote Romney's spokesman Eric Fehrstrom:

"State revenues are surging, jobs are up and people are feeling more confident about the Massachusetts economy," said Eric Fehrnstrom, Romney's spokesman. "This is a dramatic turnaround from the dark days of the economic and fiscal crisis that Governor Romney faced when he took office three and a half years ago."

Great news! Thanks for picking this up. I'll highlight your entry at Iowans for ROmney and Elect Romney in 2008.

Keep up the good work! You're still free to come over any time to Iowa to see/meet Romney ($50/plate Dinner--for state GOP Chairman--in Cedar Rapids on July 29th and a free lunch earlier that same day in Ames, IA for Romney supporters).

Iowa is all about smaller group/personal politics and it's great because we get more opportunity to meet/speak with the candidates than in the big cities or non-early primary states.
