MassDems Statement in Response to DCR Chiefs’ Suspensions

BOSTON – The following is a statement from Exectutive Director Jay Cincotti in response to DCR Chiefs' suspensions. 

"Dismissing these two Baker administration officials is only a first step in trying to repair the public trust. They have a lot to come clean about. If they don't, it's like putting a band-aid on a broken leg.

"Just this year, Republicans sent fundraising letters out in exchange for access to Governor Baker, the Republican shadow super PAC Mass Fiscal Alliance was found to have broken campaign finance laws by OCPF, and now the Republican Party leaders are caught using taxpayer money to host a bash for the Republican elite. 

"Clearly Republicans do not believe they need to play by the same rules as everyone else. There are the rules they talk about, and then the rules they follow."
