Massachusetts Democratic Party Responds to Governor Baker’s Comments on the Fair Share Amendment
BOSTON – Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford released the following statement in response to Governor Charlie Baker’s comments on the Fair Share Amendment:
“Our Republican Governor is again trying to have it both ways. While refusing to take a position on a constitutional amendment to increase taxes on annual income above one million dollars, he attacks those crying out for better public schools for their kids and improvements in our roads, bridges, and transit.
“The Governor’s concern first-and-foremost is defending the wealthy campaign donors he’s counting on to fund his reelection campaign. How else could he not recognize the connection between good schools and reliable ways to get to work, and the improved earning power struggling middle class families so desperately need?”
