REPRESENTING Meeting House Hill, Dorchester
AGE 40
THEME SONG "Romney on the MTA"
IN HIS WORDS "I'm the only candidate with 15 years senior management experience in government. I have a record of solving problems for the people of Boston."
IN OUR WORDS It's no wonder that Robert Fortes doesn't openly label himself a Republican — the unaffiliated pol and political legacy (his late father, Robert Fortes Sr., was a state rep from Mattapan) worked for former governor Mitt Romney, and is currently assistant general manager for strategic planning, performance, and accountability at the MBTA — so he must know quite well that his party is recklessly incompetent. To be taken seriously, Fortes should have to publicly denounce the Mittster and the Green Line.
