I am so excited to announce today my candidacy for Governor of Massachusetts. Our campaign is starting with a three-day, 18-stop tour all over the Commonwealth. We are coming out of this tough economic crisis, but many families are still struggling. The reason we are going to emerge from this and build a better future is because of our people. The same people I’ve had the privilege to serve with and for throughout my career. The people of Massachusetts are tough, smart, resilient, and we care about each other. These folks are the reason I’m running for Governor. You need someone who will fight for you. Someone who will take your side. I’ve done that as Attorney General and I’ll do it as Governor.
Massachusetts is poised to take off, and we can either grab this moment and move forward together, or fall behind. We need to rebuild our economy in a way that gives everyone the opportunity to succeed. And we need to launch the next phase of education reform in this state so that every child and every adult has the skills they need to compete in a global economy. That is why I am running for Governor. I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work across this Commonwealth. I look forward to hearing from all of you as we come to your communities over the coming days and months.
