George HW Bush Remembered In Massachusetts, His Home State

Presidents USA

   President George H.W. Bush had a lot of connections to New England.  He was born in Milton, Massachusetts, grew up in Connecticut, and spent almost every summer of his life in Kennebunkport, Maine.

    There are several prominent politicians and government officials in the region who got their start in politics working for Bush.    

    One of them is Bruce Stebbins, a Massachusetts Gaming Commissioner and former Springfield City Councilor.    

   Stebbins, who is in Washington for tomorrow’s state funeral for the 41st president, spoke a short time ago with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill.

Paul Tuthill is WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief. He’s been covering news, everything from politics and government corruption to natural disasters and the arts, in western Massachusetts since 2007. Before joining WAMC, Paul was a reporter and anchor at WRKO in Boston. He was news director for more than a decade at WTAG in Worcester. Paul has won more than two dozen Associated Press Broadcast Awards. He won an Edward R. Murrow award for reporting on veterans’ healthcare for WAMC in 2011. Born and raised in western New York, Paul did his first radio reporting while he was a student at the University of Rochester.
