As a lifelong climate activist, Bob Massie is my clear choice for Governor of Massachusetts. I was one of the first to publicly endorse him. As I know from my own campaign, fundraising is critical, especially when you don't take money from special interests! Bob's is a grass roots campaign, and we are the grass roots. Please join us if you can, but if you can't, please donate via Act Blue! Thank you :-)
More about Bob: He won the 1994 Democratic primary for lieutenant governor and is a lifetime progressive activist, executive leader, and systems thinker. As Governor, Bob would bring the bold leadership we should expect from a state like Massachusetts: 100% renewable energy and no more pipelines, high speed rail to connect our communities, single payer health care, paid family and medical leave, $15/hr, the Fair Share amendment, criminal justice reform, and a compassionate health-based approach to opioid addiction.
Bob has an impressive, wide-ranging and successful background. He has founded and run effective sustainability organizations at the global, national and local levels, led campaigns for racial justice going back to the anti-apartheid divestment movement, pioneered efforts for decades to address climate change, challenge corporate power, and push corporations to be more responsible.
What truly sets Bob apart in addition to his experience, is his character. He is fearless, moves people and excites them to action! No other candidate has demonstrated these two personal qualities with the same clarity and energy. His life story is all about overcoming adversity in the service of his community while maintaining his determination, resilience, cheerful pragmatism and fierce defense of our core American values - inclusion, equality, imagination, and persistence.
Bob will give Democrats the BEST chance to beat Baker in November. He can build a broad-based progressive coalition and implement real change for the future we deserve!
