About Us

We know government can work. We’ve seen it fix problems and change lives for the better. In Massachusetts, our common sense approach to effective government has always balanced optimism and pragmatism. We have been idealistic and yet realistic.

In order to make real progress in Massachusetts, we must return to common sense. We need to move past the status quo and embrace innovative approaches to find solutions to the problems facing us in the 21st century -- and when something isn’t working in government, we need to be brave enough to try something new.

Together, we can work together for change. We can take on the challenges facing our state to develop stronger communities and a better economy -- not because change is easy, but because building a vibrant future for our Commonwealth depends on it.

Join us to fight for what works,

Reily Connaughton
