MassDems Chairman Tom McGee’s Statement on Paul Sagan’s $100k Donation to “Lift the Cap”

BOSTON – In response to Paul Sagan's $100,000 donation to "Lift the Cap," Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman Tom McGee released the following statement:

“On the heels of the Baker Administration’s use of taxpayer money to throw a July 3rd party for Republican elite, the $100,000 donation made by the Baker appointed Paul Sagan again calls into question the governor's judgment on who best serves the people of the Commonwealth. As Chairman of the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, Mr. Sagan has a duty to fulfill that position in an unbiased manner, free from personal opinion. A donation to ‘Lift the Cap’ that is more than most working families make in a year suggests an inappropriate bias and, at the very least, shows poor judgment.”
