Statement from Jay Gonzalez on Baker Amendment Cutting Aid to Vulnerable Children

“Governor Baker’s proposal to slash funding for more than 7,000 low-income children with severely disabled parents, during a sustained period of economic growth, is unconscionable. The Legislature should reject Governor Baker’s mean-spirited attempt to strip vulnerable children and their families of assistance they need to pay for rent and basic necessities. We need a Governor who leads from the heart and works to support the most vulnerable among us, not one who goes out of his way to hurt them.”
