You know never know when someone from this corner of the country will make it big. Here’s the latest example of a prominent local, via Amy Chozick of The New York Times (emphasis mine):
TWO days after President Obama’s first debate against Mitt Romney, Stephanie Cutter, a deputy campaign manager for the Obama re-election effort, decided to tweak Mr. Romney for his attack on federal funding for PBS. …
Ms. Cutter, who turns 44 on Oct. 22, has emerged as Mr. Obama’s one-woman attack squad. In the process, she has become a popular but polarizing face of a campaign that until recently had been largely dominated by middle-aged white men. …
A native of Raynham, Mass., Ms. Cutter is the only daughter of a single schoolteacher mother, Grace, whom she talks to daily. One of her brothers served in the military in Afghanistan, and she often entertains her nieces and nephews by taking them on tours of the White House briefing room and the National Zoo.
Brockton Enterprise reporter Amy Carboneau caught up with Cutter and her mom earlier this month. Between Scott Brown, Joe Kennedy and Cutter, it’s impressive how much national political attention Southeastern Massachusetts is attracting these days.
