State Sen. Mike Barrett has filed a bill to ensure that individuals who run for president in Massachusetts make their tax returns public and disclose real or potential conflicts of interest. A presidential candidate who refused to submit tax returns or file a Statement of Financial Interests would be rendered ineligible to appear on the relevant Massachusetts primary or general election ballot.
Right now, we need your help. Over the next few weeks, state legislators will be looking over thousands of bills and picking some to co-sponsor. The more State Representatives and State Senators who sign on by February 3rd, the better. Sen. Barrett’s bill is SD.98, “An Act restoring financial transparency in presidential elections”. Call or email your legislators and encourage them to co-sponsor. Share this email with your friends. Post on social media. Let’s keep pushing.
