A new nonpartisan research center, with a pair of former governors on its advisory council, is setting out to provide lawmakers and voters with “real-time” analysis of key topics, including projected impacts of ballot questions.
Tufts University’s Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life announced the launch of the Center for State Policy Analysis on Thursday.
Members of the center’s advisory council are: former Govs. Jane Swift and Michael Dukakis; Tisch College dean Alan Solomont; former Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation President Michael Widmer; Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers general counsel and deputy CEO Michael Curry; Katherine Craven, chief administrative and financial officer at Babson College and the chair of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education; Ted Landsmark, director of the Dukakis Center at Northeastern University; David Cash, dean of the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at UMass Boston; Carolyn Ryan, senior vice president for policy and research at the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce; A Better City Executive Vice President Kate Dineen; and Tufts political science professor Jeffrey Berry.
