“In an unusual move Friday, all three Democrats running for governor in 2018 joined together in downtown Boston to collect signatures to put a question on the 2018 ballot that would raise taxes on income over $1 million.

“The agreement among the candidates on the proposed constitutional amendment reflects a larger agreement among the Democrats—Newton Mayor Setti Warren, former health insurance executive and state budget chief Jay Gonzalez and environmentalist and entrepreneur Bob Massie—that Massachusetts needs new revenue.

“It is in contrast to” Gov. Charlie Baker (R) “who generally opposes raising taxes.” (MassLive)
