Joseph Donovan and David Nagle were quoted in the article, "Failed Mass. Ballot Shows Fading Support for Millionaires' Tax," which was published by Law360 [sub. req.] on June 20, 2018.

In the article, Joe remarks about how proponents of the ballot measure had been explicit about the need for tax revenue to fund education and transportation and how previous proposals for graduated income taxes had failed. Dave noted that structuring the ballot question in a way that seemed to offer voters a sweetener if they agreed to the millionaires' tax is what doomed it.
