Sonia Chang-Diaz Announces Run for Governor of Massachusetts

June 23, 2021

It’s official:  state Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz (D-Jamaica Plain) is running for governor of Massachusetts.

Diaz is the third Democrat to announce a run for what is currently Governor Charlie Baker’s corner office in the Massachusetts State House. The others are Harvard political scientist Danielle Allen and former state Senator Benjamin Downing (D-Pittsfield).

“I’ve spent my life listening to powerful people tell me to slow down — to think smaller, to wait,” Chang-Diaz said, according to WCVB. “Voters didn’t send me to the state Senate to wait. Every day it gets harder for working families to live here. Health care and housing costs get higher, Black and brown kids face yawning opportunity gaps. If we don’t act now, we’ll be having the same conversation about the same problems in another 10 years.”

 

 

New to NewBostonPost?  Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts.  But you’ve found it.  Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks — $2 for two months.  And join the real revolution.
