Spotlight on Ann Romney – Lantigua loses state committee seat – Andrews under fire

ANN ‘12: With all this talk of another candidate jumping into the GOP nomination race, I think Margery Eagan has the best idea here.

LAWRENCE: Lantigua loses! OK, it’s just his state committee seat, but he still lost. And the Trib calls him “the Lantigua” which is awesome in its own way.

TELECOMMUTING: Rep. Denise Andrews on how newfangled technology seems to allow her to squeeze 30 or so hours out of a 24 hour day. (Recorder)

ANGER: Hey, MBTA, how are those public meetings going? Oh, not so positive, huh? Well, I’m sure you’ll figure something out. (Sun)
