REPUBLICAN CHARLIE BAKER CONTINUES TO DUCK ENVIRONMENTAL FORUM MODERATED BY FORMER ROMNEY ENVIRONMENTAL ADVISOR
Friday’s Forum Moderated by Romney “Super-Secretariat” Doug Foy
BOSTON – Republican Charlie Baker still refuses to participate in Friday’s environmental forum even though it is moderated by Doug Foy, who oversaw environmental issues, transportation, housing and energy as Mitt Romney’s former Secretary of Commonwealth Development.
“Is Republican Charlie Baker really afraid of a forum moderated by Mitt Romney’s top environmental adviser or is Charlie afraid of angering the Republican Tea Party base?” said Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Tom McGee. “By continuing to avoid answering questions about the existence of climate change, Charlie is taking a page straight out of the national Republican Party playbook.”
