Statement from Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford Reacting to State of the Commonwealth

“When was the last time you had a conversation about politics for 30 minutes, and never spoke of Donald Trump? That’s what Charlie Baker just did in his major annual speech tonight.  Charlie Baker and Karyn Polito continue to nibble around the edges and refuse to really take on the critical issues we face.  This “victory lap” tonight felt like it was in slow motion. When people ask themselves if things have gotten easier or harder over the last five years, I don’t think Baker and Polito are going to enjoy the answer.”
