CARL RUSSO/Staff photo. Governor Charlie Baker made his first visit to the Greater Lawrence Technical School Thursday afternoon to take a tour and celebrate the launch of the Career Tech Initiative, a $15 million program he initially announced during his State of the Commonwealth Address Tuesday. Lt. Governor Karyn Polito plus state and local dignitaries also attended the event with the governor. 

“As the lieutenant governor and I were heading in today, we talked to three kids who were waiting for the bus,” Baker said from a podium in the school's library.

“We said, 'What are you interested in? What are you doing?' One of them wants to be a plumber, one of them wants to be an electrician, one of them wants to do metal work. I said, 'That's very interesting. You know what? You're going to make a lot more than the governor!'” 1/23/2020
