Massachusetts' former governor, Mitt Romney, touted his record in his the keynote address of the Republican National Convention Thursday, but next week Gov. Deval Patrick will likely air his view of his predecessor's term.
Patrick is expected to speak on Tuesday, the first night of the convention.
And he isn't the only high-profile Massachusetts politician expected to criticize Romney at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte. Mayor Thomas Menino is scheduled to speak Wednesday, according to the Boston Globe.
Two other Massachusetts politicans with national profiles, former presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry and senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren, are also slotted to take the stage in Charlotte this week.
Out in the crowd will be several delegates with ties to Jamaica Plain, including City Councilor Felix Arroyo, who lives on Wachusett Street; State Rep. Jeffrey Sánchez, whose district includes JP and Kristie Helms, who is blogging about the convention from her Web site.
