Statement from Democrat for Governor Jay Gonzalez on Downgrade of Commonwealth’s Bond Rating

CAMBRIDGE – Friday, June 9, 2017 – The following is a statement from Jay Gonzalez, Democrat for Governor.
“Governor Baker is failing us. His mismanagement is now going to cost taxpayers millions of dollars. We can and must do better. Under my leadership during the Great Recession, Massachusetts achieved the highest bond ratings in state history, and we grew the rainy day fund by close to $1 billion for a total balance that was hundreds of millions of dollars more than it is today under Governor Baker. Governor Baker owes taxpayers an explanation and a plan for getting us out of the mess he created.”
