MassDems Statement on Gov. Baker Fundraising in Midst of Commuter Crisis

BOSTON—In response to news reports that Gov. Baker is traveling to Washington D.C.tonight to fundraise, MassDems spokesman Pat Beaudry released the following statement:

"It's insulting to the working people who rely on public transportation that in the midst of a crisis, Gov. Baker escapes to raise money in Washington D.C. We heard a lot of bluster and rhetoric from him today about "strangling people," but the bottom line remains while our status quo governor is off hobnobbing at exclusive fundraisers, excessive delays are the norm and he wants to raise fares on people who need public transportation to get to work."
