Massie: “Charlie Baker’s a fraud”, an “empty suit”. Gonzalez: “It’s easy to be popular when you don’t do anything, and you don’t take a stand, and your whole approach to the job is to be cautious rather than courageous.” Welp.
Here’s the discussion with WGBH’s Jim Braude. Accountability!
I have to say, it’s really refreshing to see two folks challenging the Everything Is Fine coziness between the Beacon Hill establishment (including Marty Walsh) and Baker. Think about the kinds of things that are slam-dunk investments, like universal pre-K, that simply never come up because no one challenges the consensus.
Also, Braude should know better than to come at Bob Massie on wind power. After a generation of fighting about it, we now have a “toehold” in wind power?
