Baker to Follow Lead of Trump Administration on Environment

CAMBRIDGE – Friday, August 4, 2017 – The following is a statement from Jay Gonzalez, Democrat for Governor in response to yesterday’s Boston Globe story on Governor Baker’s decision to abandon plans to address water pollution.

“President Trump’s disregard for our environment is yet another example of the ways in which he is taking this country backwards. Rather than aligning himself with President Trump and subjecting our Commonwealth to these dangerous policies, Governor Baker ought to demonstrate real leadership by pressing ahead with plans that will protect our environment. Governor Baker’s decision to follow Trump’s lead and punt on environmental protection is disappointing and indicative of the kind of lead-from-behind governance we’ve come to expect from him.”
