Politician after Republican politician from across the nation has taken the convention stage this past week to extol the policies of Mitt Romney. On the night when Romney accepted the party’s nomination, however, his campaign turned to Bay Staters to fill out a personal portrait of the candidate.
“Now Mitt was an unusual guy,” said Tom Stemberg, describing to a national audience the special enthusiasm that Romney brought to a plan for a comprehensive office-supply company from Framingham. “He had already enjoyed great success at Bain & Company. But he knew the value of a dollar. When I told him about Staples, he really got excited at the idea of saving a few cents on paper clips.”
