Local and state officials recently joined Mayor Setti Warren for the launch of a new Veterans Center at American Legion Post 440 in Newton. The regional center aims to give veterans of all generations and branches of service a "one-stop location" for information on education, job opportunities, housing, childcare, taxes, finances and health advice, according to a press release issued by the mayor's office.

Lt. Gov. Timothy P.

State treasurer Steve Grossman and 2010 Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker have also expressed interest in a run in 2014. And it wasn't so long ago that Scott Brown was greeted with shouts of "Governor!" during his concession speech. Who do you …
