Dick Cheney comes to Boston

HOPKINTON

Mitt Romney might put it this way: another cattle rancher is coming to town. The state GOP announced yesterday that Vice President Dick Cheney will headline an event on Sept. 8 in Boston.

The reception will honor former Ambassador Dick Egan, founder of Hopkinton-based EMC Corp.

“We are excited to have the Vice President join us next month as we recognize Ambassador Egan for his years of service to Massachusetts and to our country,” Darrell Crate, Chairman of the Massachusetts Republican Party, said in a statement. “Vice President Cheney has been at President Bush’s side leading America through the challenges we have faced over the past six years and we are honored to have him join us for this special event,” said Crate.

Egan, founder of EMC and native of Dorchester, was ambassador to Ireland from 2001 to 2003.
