Next Steps on Endorsement

🗳Digging In 

This year, Massachusetts voters will have opportunities up and down the ballot this September and November to make sure that strong progressive candidates get elected.

But how do you determine who's best representing our progressive goals? 

Specifics and details matter, not labels and words. The Progressive Mass comprehensive policy questionnaire for candidates digs in on the issues and specific policies, building on our Progressive Platform and 2017-2018 Legislative Agenda.

The Corner Office

Despite his "moderate" reputation in the press, Governor Baker has been pushing a reactionary, Trump-lite agenda. Among other things--

  • He has pushed legislation to roll back the ACA's Medicaid expansion and facilitate Trump's racist mass deportation agenda, making his Republican friends in Washington proud.
  • He has sought to privatize vital state functions rather than invest in the public goods that make our state strong.
  • And he has been advocating for new fossil fuel pipelines and hobbling the state's solar industry -- the exact opposite of what we need to be doing.

Massachusetts can do better. That requires each of us to take action.

🗳What Next?

These are two important races, and whether or not we endorse a candidate in the primary depends on you, our members. In a little over a month, we'll be asking you which candidate (if any) we should endorse. Candidates who secure > 60% of the vote will receive our endorsement.
