BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Governor Deval Patrick weighed in on the problems in Ferguson, Missouri Wednesday, and another issue closer to home, the Market Basket saga.
The governor had strong words about the situation in Ferguson and told our Political Reporter Sharman Sacchetti that there has been progress when it comes to race relations in this country, but much still remains to be done. When asked how he would have handled the situation differently, he said he's glad he doesn't have to.
Patrick also spoke about the Market Basket saga and the potential deadline for a deal approaching this Friday. The governor said he's still reaching out and met with Arthur T., Arthur S., the N.H. governor, the board chairman and a representative of the Class A shareholders. When asked if he thought they would be able to come to an agreement by Friday, he said he believes they're working productively.
Patrick also said that price isn't the issue, and that there's more than enough money to get this deal done.
When Sacchetti asked about the sticking points, Patrick told her to ask Market Basket.
