Governor Patrick's Statement on President Obama's State of the Union Address

"Tonight, President Obama spoke candidly about the challenges we face, and acknowledged that people are anxious and uncertain about the future. He was clear that we must continue to confront the economic crisis head on, and outlined a vision for creating jobs and investing in people that closely aligns with our agenda for the Commonwealth: promoting green jobs and clean energy, fixing our aging infrastructure, and giving our kids a world-class education. Our President is committed to keeping us on a path towards lasting recovery, and walking that path together. I am confident that with his determination and clarity of vision all of us in the Commonwealth and across America will bridge to a better tomorrow."
