What was your reaction to Governor Patrick’s appointment of Mo Cowan as interim US Senator?
|He seems capable and I like that he’s not doing it long-term. I’m tired of people doubting our capabilities. African Americans in office usually have to make quality appointments because we’re scrutinized more and thus appoint people who will reflect positively on us.
|I was fortunate enough to be granted the opportunity to interview Mr. Cowan, and during our interview I was inspired by his words and dedication to Governor Patrick as well as the people of the Commonwealth. I’m confident that he will make an extraordinary senator.

|I think Governor Patrick certainly made the right decision because Mo is very smart, confident and cares about the Commonwealth. And I agree wholeheartedly because there is no better choice than Mo.

|I’m not that familiar with him, but I think it was a bold move. I’m proud of the governor and it’s about time.
|It’s great to see a new face come in without an agenda, and it’ll possibly open the door for someone of his caliber for future appointments.
|I think it was the right move and he chose a black man with strong achievements.
