Our sustaining members have voted to endorse Maura Healey for Attorney General. Maura has the progressive record of leadership and the independence that we need in our next Attorney General - and has nearly 68% in our membership vote. Whether taking on big banks, defending access to women's health care, advancing civil rights, and marriage equality, Maura has shown what an engaged and progressive Attorney General can do. She will lead on criminal justice reform, protecting children, and reducing gun violence, with bold and new ideas for our state. We are proud to support her in this campaign.
Maura’s strong stand against expanded gambling in Massachusetts and her experience heading up the civil rights division in the Attorney General’s office were particularly persuasive to our members. And, while we are primarily concerned with electing the most progressive leadership, members made the strong case that our elected officials should reflect the diversity of the Commonwealth, and electing an openly gay woman is important to our shared goal of supporting diversity in state government.
As you likely know, we began with the central premise that to create the kind of transformative progressive change we need, we must build, sustain and invest in grassroots infrastructure. So we are building the activist infrastructure to pass important progressive legislation, and a part of this includes helping get progressives like Maura Healey elected to office. Thank you for being a supporter, you can contribute here to support our efforts to elect progressive leaders and win bold, progressive policy for Massachusetts.
