December 3rd, 2009 by Sam

Bill Densmore, is a career journalist, publisher, entrepreneur and director of the the Media Giraffe Project, New England News Forum, and a collaborator on Journalism That Matters.   He collected 18 questions from MA citizens which were hand-delivered to Coakley’s political director and press spokesperson at a North Adams rally on Nov. 23 at the Cup & Saucer cafe.

The questions and her answers can be found here

Below is Samantha’s question and Coakley’s response:

14. WORLD COMPETITION — What does America need to do to ready ourselves for increasing economic competition from China, India and Brazil; what, specifically, is the responsibility of the senator from Massachusetts, and what, specifically is beyond the scope of those senatorial responsibilities. Give examples of each.

COAKLEY ANSWERS:

As we enter the 21st century, it is essential that we both build on our existing strengths and adapt our economy to the many challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, such as the emerging green economy. As Senator, my primary responsibility will be to ensure that Massachusetts can fully capitalize on these opportunities, notably by securing the Commonwealth federal funding that fosters green technologies, life sciences research and advanced technology manufacturing centers. I will also work with other Senators, Congressmen and the White House to develop national solutions that reduce our trade imbalance, provide incentives to business to pursue new energy technologies and provide affordable health coverage that will keep our workforce healthy and our industries globally competitive.
