This video highlights the life of a true and devoted Public Servant, the late Speaker of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, the Honorable George Keverian. He served as Speaker for the six year period 1985 - 1990.
George was the first to unseat a sitting Speaker by campaigning and instituting a remarkable platform of democratic changes thereby making a strong contribution to an improved form of governance in the Commonwealth.
This video shows George in debate to bring fiscal balance in 1988 when the Commonwealth entered a recession. He succeeded in this effort without resorting to autocratic rule and without undue injury to the vulnerable in our society.
Last but not least, George had a strong sense of humor. Viewers will enjoy watching George in action on this front as well.
This video is timely, informative and entertaining for all to enjoy.
