Persistent talk among most of the city’s political power brokers centers around the ambitions of Mayor Thomas Ambrosino. The mayor does not have a candidate to challenge him for re-election. He is home free for another term. However there is the belief that he is leaving for another position, and soon.
The mayor will say nothing about his plans. He tends to hold everything close to his vest. Not even his closest friends and advisors have any idea what he is planning, except to say they know the mayor is planning his next move. Some say he is being considered to permanently head the Mass Turnpike Authority. Others insist he is to be given the eladership role in a non-existent gambling authority position.
The only certainty is that the mayor is leaving. The big questions are these: where is he going and when?
