Progressive Massachusett Asked the MA-Gov Candidates Some Questions. Which Ones Didn't They Answer?

Two weeks ago, Progressive Massachusetts released the results of its candidate surveys. The organization sent a questionnaire to the candidates for each of the four statewide races this year: Governor, Lt Governor, Attorney General, and Treasurer. The questionnaire covered jobs & the economy, education, health care, housing, and revenue & taxation.

Four out of the five Democrats responded: Don Berwick, Martha Coakley, Steve Grossman, and Juliette Kayyem. Joe Avellone did not.

When reading through the survey responses, I was caught by the number of hedges. The survey had many simple Yes or No questions to which candidates responded with neither a Yes nor a No.
Below, I've included all but one of the Yes/No questions for a side-by-side comparison. I left out the housing question because all of them agreed ("Yes") and the bulk of that section consisted of written responses.

Read the rest here.
