Ken Gordon explains why he voted in favor of the Massachusetts House transportation finance bill.

From the blog post: Reminded that a state-wide election covers an area that is far greater than a race for state representative, Gordon appeared confused. "You mean Massachusetts goes beyond Route 495? Can somebody call Rep. Aaron Vega and ask how long it takes to get to Holyoke?" The post was a fantastic gag, including faux quotes from State Sen. Mike …
