It’s time to #SpeakUpCharlie!

After returning from the Republican Governor’s Association meeting in Florida, where he rubbed elbows with Vice President-Elect Mike Pence, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker said there was “too much prejudging” of the incoming Trump administration, vowing to take a “wait and see approach.”

Governor Baker continues to remain silent, even as the President-Elect tapped a notorious white supremacist, Steve Bannon, to an influential post within the President’s inner circle.

Attorney General Maura Healey has expressed deep concern about the Governor’s comments and his refusal to denounce Bannon, who has peddled in white supremacy, racist, anti-Semitic, and misogynistic views. Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Ed Markey have condemned the Bannon appointment and all nine of the state’s members of Congress have signed a letter urging the President-Elect to immediately remove Bannon from his role as Chief Strategist and Senior Counsel.

Nationwide, Trump’s appointment of Bannon has been widely criticized by Democratic and Republican leaders, while being celebrated by former Ku Klux Klansman David Duke, leaders of the American Nazi party, and other hate groups.

Join Attorney General Healey, Senator Warren, Senator Markey, the state’s congressional delegation, and thousands of Massachusetts residents in urging Governor Baker to break his silence on Bannon’s new position in the White House, an appointment that clearly crosses the line.

Tell the Governor that it's about time he takes a stand against the President-Elect's selection of a truly abhorrent individual for such a prominent role in his Administration. It’s time to #SpeakUpCharlie.
