McIntire, again

In the fall of 2011, when default loomed on $42 million in bonds for Town Toyota Center, our state’s treasurer, Jim McIntire, was here. He urged action, emphasized the importance of meeting debts and maintaining the financial reputation and credit of our city, region and state. Financial responsibility brought its own rewards, he said, and worked for reconciliation and offered his assistance in finding a solution. He was right, and our region owes him its gratitude. While his solution was not adopted, McIntire spured us to action and we found success. We could see then and now that McIntire applies an equal or higher measure of integrity to his oversight of the state’s finances, and maintained our credit and solvency through an era of repeated market crises. Every citizen in this state benefits.
