BEST PITCH TO AMAZON IS MENU OF MASS. OPTIONS, BAKER SAYS

Unlike the state partnership with the city of Boston that helped lure General Electric to the capital city, Gov. Charlie Baker said Tuesday it would be a "mistake" for his administration to pick sides among communities attempting to attract Amazon's second national headquarters to Massachusetts.

Bids to Amazon to convince the tech giant that Massachusetts is the right place to locate its $5 billion new headquarters are due by Oct. 19. While pitches are expected for a number of prospective sites, Baker said the state will focus on selling Massachusetts as "big-time player" in the technology, big data and robotics fields that is making investments in the types of things that should be important to a company like Amazon.
