Press coverage of hearing

In “State is accused of breaking promises,” The Boston Globe reports on the angry residents from Somerville and elsewhere who packed the State House yesterday. “A deal is a deal,” said Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone, comparing the state’s move to Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez’s joining the New York Mets. “But here’s the difference. Pedro made a verbal commitment to stay in Boston. The state signed on the dotted line.”
In “Officials blasted over broken Dig promises,” The Boston Herald quoted State Senator Jarrett Barrios: “Your very presence here breaks the law. We have waited 14 years for you to keep your promises. Many of us are tired of waiting.”
