Once again Amherst proves how out of touch from the mainstream we are, voting over 4-1 in favor of what's her name while the rest of the state went with the white guy. Or the losing anti-casino vote (Question 3) finding favor in Amherst by almost 2-1
You have to wonder if the local CPA tax increase question (Question 5) had been decided by a statewide vote would the rest of the state have saved us from ourselves? Of course you also have to wonder what impact the student vote had on that question passing (3624-3154).
You know, the folks who will not buy property here and deal with its burden.
At 80%, Cambridge delivers @marthacoakley's largest margin over @CharlieForGov in Mass., followed closely by Amherst at 78% #magov #mapoli
