Scaling The Hill 2010 Launches Today

Next year promises to be an historic election year for Massachusetts. Two of the state’s Constitutional offices (Auditor and Treasurer) are up for grabs, and depending on the outcome of next month’s special U.S. Senate election, there could potentially be two more vacancies, in the offices of Attorney General and Secretary of State. Throw in a hotly contested Governor’s race, and it’s safe to say there are a lot of moving pieces sure to shake up the political landscape in 2010.

With that in mind, we here at Scaling The Hill would like to reaffirm our commitment to bringing you the latest news and behind the scenes look at what’s really happening on Beacon Hill, including some stories that may go unnoticed by the mainstream media. Today we are re-launching Scaling The Hill as Scaling The Hill 2010, as we look forward to an election year that promises to bring unprecedented changes to Massachusetts politics.

As we have stated under our masthead since we published our first post in the fall of 2008, “Our blog is meant to inform the residents of Massachusetts in a timely fashion about the issues affecting them on Beacon Hill. We represent you. Our blog is here to voice our shared ideals and goals.” We look forward to continuing to carry out that mission in the year ahead, and hope you’ll come along for the ride.
