The ‘Inaugural’ Ask Me Anything Day

Welcome to my first Ask Me Anything Day at my new blogging home!

The idea is simple: you send me questions, either as comments to this post or via email to, and I will do my best to provide my best answer, estimate, reporting, speculation, prediction, rumor, or wild guess in separate posts throughout the day.

For those who don’t know me, my main area of expertise is local and state politics. Certainly there is no shortage of activity in those realms that you might have questions about. Gomez vs. Markey? Boston mayor? 2014 Governor? It’s all fair game.

So please, send me your questions. I’m looking forward to it!
