NORTH ATTLEBORO - The Massachusetts' gubernatorial election is more than a year away but candidates are already expressing their interest in the office.
One of those candidates, a former state senator from the western part of the state, visited the North TV studio on Tuesday.
Ben Downing explained how a large share of the state budget and focus on growth is typically centered around metropolitan Boston and not other areas of the Commonwealth where it is desperately needed.
