"Massachusetts Democrats believe in the common good."
We know that the strength of our democracy is dependent on the engagement of thoughtful citizens. That is why our party is organized around the basic notion that individuals working together can make a positive impact on their community. Massachusetts Democrats believe that government plays a vital role in the lives of individuals and communities.”
- From the Platform of the Massachusetts Democratic Party
