OpEd – Why Massachusetts Needs Jay Gonzalez

Gwen Holbrow’s op-ed published in Metrowest Daily News

The Metrowest Daily News has published the op-ed piece written by FDC member Gwen Holbrow in which she makes a strong case for the election of Democratic nominee Jay Gonzalez over incumbent govenor Charlie Baker.

In this op-ed Gwen writes about the perception that Baker is good manager, stating that “Baker is a Poor Manager. Baker uses the Republican strategy of promising lower taxes and then using decreased revenue to justify cutting services. Baker’s campaign site says “Major reforms to the MBTA have improved reliability for riders, and cost savings have led to a more efficient system.” Riders know the MBTA is a mess.”

Help Out Of State Races

Support Democrats Nation-wide

A message from FDC member Kurt Fusaris:

“While it is important that we support Democrats up and down the ballot here in Massachusetts and in Framingham, the upcoming midterm elections are critically important for the future of our country.  In addition to our efforts locally, we should do whatever we can to promote Democrats nationwide.  The following are candidates to whom I would suggest we make a generous contribution in an effort to elect them in November.  I don’t expect us to be able to contribute to all of them, but if there are a few on this list that you can help out, that could help.  If you can spread the word and get others to contribute as well, that is even better.
