Mayor taking post at State House?

April 18, 2007
By

Mayor Ambrosino has apparently been considering an offer from the governor to take over the Department of Conservation and Recreation. Ambrosino, according to DCR officials who wished to remain unnamed, has been visiting the agency headquarters in Boston and familiarizing himself with its inner workings. If Ambrosino is in fact going to take the position, he is expected to announce it soon.

    This would be bad for the City of Revere and good for Revere Beach. The mayor came in with the hopes of turning around the Beach, and to a large extent, he and his supporters in the Partnership have figured out how to do that without much help from the state. To use his own words, it would be a “coup” for Revere Beach to have the mayor at the helm of the DCR.
    Politically, though, who would fill the gigantic hole left by the mayor? I can see George Rotondo, Doug Goodwin, Bob Haas, perhaps John Powers and maybe even Carol Tye. If Dan Rizzo doesn’t win the Senate seat, he would be the likely successor. Plenty of people would step up, but just about everyone would be a disappointment in comparison. Then again, maybe not.

    The shoes of Tom Ambrosino would be huge to fill. However with dedication and a collaborative effort we could keep Revere moving forward. I know that I would be hard pressed not to seriously consider running for Mayor as I am sure some of my colleagues will too.

    With that said, if Tom Ambrosino does move on to the DCR surely Bob Haas and others would consider the race for Mayor. In the end it comes down to who the voters trust and who they know can do the Job. I don’t foresee Dan Rizzo running for Mayor as I feel he will be the next State Senator.

    Respectfully

    George Rotondo

    I feel that if the Mayor leaves it would be the best thing for this City. Liberals like Mr. Ambrosino and hard working families don’t mix, oh we may have new schools, but our forclosures on the homes in this city are overwhelming. I say bye Mr. Mayor and take your Liberal ideas with you.
