voters deserve to know pledge

Rep Gouveia signed the pledge!

Massachusetts’ legislature is one of the most secretive in the country.

the transparency pledge:

Massachusetts’ legislature is one of the most secretive in the country. Important progressive legislation is killed year after year in back rooms without any public record. But together we can change this. We can ask our elected legislators to take action to create transparency today so important progressive bills don’t die in darkness.
