Murray Not Running For Governor; Who Should Run?

Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray will not run for governor in 2014, citing the demands of campaigning, serving in elected office and his desire to spend more time with his wife and two young daughters.

Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray will not run for governor in 2014, citing the demands of campaigning, serving in elected office and his desire to spend more time with his wife and two young daughters, reported his hometown newspaper the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester.

“It's something I have been thinking about for some time,” Murray said of the decision, which he said came after sitting down to talk it through with his wife, Tammy, and key supporters since the Christmas holidays.

Murray, who was mayor of the City of Worcester, told the Telegram & Gazette the demands of running a campaign and serving in office can require 15- and 16-hour days, six and seven days a week and would leave him little time to be with his family.

With Murray not in the race, who do you think should run for Governor?

I want someone who exemplifies public service in politics, such as Sen. James Eldridge.

I would vote for Eldridge before I even considered voting for Conroy who blatantly disregarded the voice of local legislators recently. I don't agree with Eldridge's progressive taxing plan but out of the two, he most certainly be heads and tails above the other

I'm certain that someone with the last name of "Kennedy" will float to the surface eventually...
