Under his leadership, I am sure the City will continue to grow and prosper. It is truly an honor to be endorsed by over 125 local town and municipal leaders throughout the State. Municipal leaders are the backbone of our State and I am proud to have earned the support of so many of them,” said Chris Dempsey, Candidate for State Auditor.
“I am proud to support Chris Dempsey for State Auditor. Chris has already shown us that he has what it takes to stand up for taxpayers. He led the No Boston Olympics organization that stopped corporations from handing taxpayers a $15 billion bill to bring the Olympics to Boston. Chris is the best-qualified candidate to be our State watchdog, and I am proud to join mayors from Northampton to Gloucester in endorsement of Chris’s candidate for State Auditor,” said Mayor Charlie Sisitsky.
Dempsey has spent his career working to reform Massachusetts state government and to protect the public interest. He served as Assistant Secretary of Transportation for Governor Deval Patrick. He has worked outside of state government as Co-Founder of the grassroots No Boston Olympics and as Director of the non-profit Transportation for Massachusetts. He will be an Auditor who can ensure an efficient, effective, and equitable state government for all residents of the Commonwealth.
Dempsey secured the Massachusetts Democratic Party endorsement on the back of a grassroots campaign. With more than 2,000 individual donors, Chris has clearly demonstrated that he is focused on the people of Massachusetts, not corporations or special interest groups.
