PRLog (Press Release)Sep 28, 2010 – East Boston, MA – On a Monday night, over 100 people gathered at Ecco Restaurant in East Boston for a reception held in honor of Massachusetts Governor candidate, Charlie Baker.

Baker gave an energy filled speech to his supporters, speaking against state and federal social programs that have left the townspeople in a bad financial state.

“I want to make sure East Boston residents and residents across the state get more bang for their buck,” Baker said, during his speech. “For too long now the people who do the right thing, pay their bills, send their kids off to college and struggle every day with their financial future are not be rewarded and that needs to change.”

Some of the townspeople expressed their frustrations about others getting bailed out at their expense, making it hard for them to send kids to college or to get a loan, despite having saved for many years.

Dave Modica, co-owner of Ecco, who also hosted the event with David Donovan, said it’s time for a businessman to be in the governor’s seat because only a businessman would understand the struggles of small businesses like Ecco.

Baker ended by saying he would stay as governor for as long as the people would have him.
