Massachusetts Gov. William F. Weld and four other state officials will continue logging frequent flyer miles next week when they head to New York City to meet with rating agency officials about the state's general obligation debt.
After spending this week in Houston at the Republican National Convention, the officials will return to Massachusetts business Monday and Tuesday to talk to officials from all three major rating agencies. Treasurer Joseph P. Malone, Assistant Treasurer Thomas P. Trimarco, Secretary of Administration and Finance Peter Nessen, and Lieutenant Gov. Paul Cellucci will begin meeting with rating agency officials Monday, according to a spokeswoman for the treasurer's office. Gov. Weld will join the group Tuesday, she added.
