Massachusetts State Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz announced her Democratic candidacy for Massachusetts governor last week. She joined Jim Braude on Greater Boston on Monday to discuss her platform, which includes a focus on education, social inequality and continued work on criminal justice and policing reform.
“I know that the governor’s office is a big piece of the puzzle when it comes to delivering the kind of structural change that working families need,” Chang-Díaz said. “And I've been able to deliver that change for 12 years as a state senator, but I think I can do a greater good from the governor's office.”
While praising Gov. Charlie Baker for his independent thinking from the national Republican Party, she said that his independence “is different from tackling the structural problems that we are facing here in Massachusetts with energy and with urgency.”
Baker has not yet announced whether he will be running for re-election.
