Attorney General Thomas Reilly, candidate for governor, drew some parallels between Watertown and the island of Martha's Vineyard in an apparent attempt to connect with the year-round residents of the island.
"Just walking around you see the diversity that makes the Island special," he told the Vineyard Gazette. "The people here love Massachusetts as much as I love it, and they love their Island even better. I live on the second floor of a two-decker in Watertown, which is much like places on the Vineyard - it's not rich, and not poor. They want a governor who understands what they're up against and understands how hard they are working and can't get ahead. Whether it is higher gasoline prices, electricity prices, they need some hope in the future."
