I am running for Lieutenant Governor

Dear friends,

I have some exciting news to share with you. Today, I am officially announcing my candidacy for Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor.

I am running for Lieutenant Governor because Massachusetts needs visionary leadership to take on the greatest challenges confronting residents -- challenges that will determine the very ability of our Commonwealth to thrive in the next decade.

I have spent my career taking on some of the world’s most complex issues. I want to use my experience to make meaningful change in this state that we love so much. That means tackling the skyrocketing cost of living and inability to access homeownership, unsustainable childcare costs, traffic that is returning to pre-pandemic levels, a widening racial wealth gap and opportunity divides in our schools, as well as the tangible impacts of climate change.

Simultaneously, Massachusetts is recovering from the impacts of COVID-19 which has left so many people hanging on by a thread -- financially, emotionally, and physically.

Now is the time for transformative leadership to tackle these generational challenges and provide a real roadmap for the near term and future generations alike. This is a unique moment in our history. COVID-19 has exposed our greatest weaknesses but also highlighted our greatest strengths and connection as a Commonwealth. It’s time to fix what is structurally broken so we can come back stronger than ever.

The General Election is just over a year away. I plan on spending each and every day building a statewide grassroots organization. I hope you will join our team. I also hope you will consider making a contribution to our campaign committee today so we can hit the ground running.

Let's do this!
