Beacon Hill's Most Beautiful: 25 power players who keep the Golden Dome in style



Politics in Massachusetts can be an ugly business.

We spend a lot of our time reporting on the unattractive aspects of Beacon Hill behavior: the rough-and-tumble campaigns, the back-room bartering, the seamy allegations, and the too-common disgraces.

So, the Phoenix and political news aggregator MassterList decided to team up and show you another side of life under the Golden Dome — the beautiful side.

We took nominations from MassterList's thousands of news-junkie subscribers, and assembled a secret team of political insiders to vote on them in the most Beacon Hill way we could imagine: in complete anonymity, behind closed doors, and without a whiff of accountability.

The result? Twenty-five individuals who brighten the State House halls with style, attitude, and even — if such a thing exists on Beacon Hill — inner beauty.

Let us know who you think we left out!
