Massachusetts Democratic Party Statement on the Congressional Delegation

Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford released the following statement regarding the recent Congressional leadership elections:

“We are encouraged by the leadership slate that has been put forward by the Democratic Party, especially the inclusion of Congresswoman Katherine Clark as Vice Chair of the Democratic Caucus. The members of the leadership team have shown that they are committed to standing up to Donald Trump and advancing policies that expand access to healthcare, defend a woman’s right to choose, and protect immigrant communities, among other priorities. Along with Congresswoman Clark, the Massachusetts delegation is well positioned to work with leadership – and hold them accountable – on issues of critical importance to people in the Commonwealth – ensuring access to high-quality, affordable healthcare; improving and maintaining our transportation infrastructure; addressing the cost of higher education; promoting equitable economic development; and protecting the civil rights of everyone in our state. We are also excited about the new generation of leaders that is emerging in Congress – including several members of the Massachusetts delegation – and look forward to working with them over the next two years and beyond.”
