Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker is set to deliver the State of the Commonwealth address this evening on Beacon Hill.
Bristol’s Sixth District State Representative Carole Fiola spoke with WSAR’s Will Flanagan recently and addressed the Governor’s commitment to the South Coast in the last year.
"One thing we can say is that Governor Baker and this administration has been very good to us,” she said. “They get it. They know we're here. They want to help us - ever more so now that the dust is settling and we're moving on. The sun is shining now on Fall River."
Fall River was mentioned in the last State of the Commonwealth Address when the Governor talked about funding for now under construction South Coast Rail. Fiola said this administration understands how this area operates.
"We have an opportunity, all of us, to show that while we will always have differences to remember to not let those get in the way of moving this community forward,” she said.”Governor Baker and particular Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito knows Fall River. She knows Fall River.”
