Send a Message to Gov. Baker: Help Elect Three Democrats

On March 1 we will go to the polls and vote for one of our two great Democratic Presidential candidates. Locally, there will be three special State Rep elections, two of which are contested, and we need to activate YOU — our statewide grassroots network — if we are going to fight back against Gov. Baker and outside spending from his Republican allies. 

Our nominees are Tom Walsh (Peabody) and Stephen Hay (Fitchburg & Lunenberg). Click here to sign up and volunteer for Tom or Stephen on our President’s Day “Day of Action.” Also, a well-deserved congratulations to Gerry Cassidy, our newest State Rep from Brockton who is unopposed on March 1. 

Gov. Baker and Republican groups outspent us almost 3-1 In the last special legislative election, but we won because we had the grassroots advantage. If you want to ensure Massachusetts keeps leading the nation, click here to help  Tom and Stephen.
