The following is a statement from Jay Gonzalez, Democrat for Governor.

NEEDHAM – Monday, May 15, 2017 – “I support the proposed Fair Share Tax on annual income over $1 million because it will generate about $2 billion in new revenue that we desperately need for education and transportation.  Once again, Governor Baker has sat on the sidelines and taken no position on this issue.  The people deserve to know where he stands:  does he support asking those at the top who are doing great through this economic recovery to pay more in taxes to support improvements to our education and transportation systems that will benefit everyone, or not?”
