BOSTON – Maura Healey today, September 28, addressed the Massachusetts Mayors’ Association’s monthly meeting, where she emphasized her commitment to partnering with the state’s local leaders to make Massachusetts more affordable and grow the economy.

“The role of Mayor is one of the most important out there, and I am so fortunate to have Mayor Driscoll on this ticket,” said Healey. “Working together with all of you, we will make Massachusetts more affordable, increase housing supply in every region, and fix our roads, bridges and public transportation. Massachusetts’ mayors should know that they will always have a partner in the Healey-Driscoll administration.”

“I frequently speak about the ‘Get Stuff Done’ wing of government. I am proud to be with the MMA today not just as a Mayor, but as a part of the Healey / Driscoll ticket,” said Driscoll. “So many of the most important issues facing our Commonwealth, from education to housing and infrastructure to climate change, require action at the local level. The success of cities and towns relies on strong partners in the Governor’s office, and the success of our Commonwealth relies on these thriving neighborhoods. I know Maura Healey understands that relationship and I am excited at the potential for strengthening our statewide policies in a manner that benefits our communities.” 

As Attorney General, Healey has worked closely with mayors across the state to deliver results for their constituents. Her litigation against opioid manufacturers, distributors and consultants has resulted in millions of dollars coming directly to communities for prevention, treatment and recovery services. Her office sued manufacturers of PFAS for forcing communities to shoulder the cost of cleaning up contaminated drinking water and failing to protect the environment from these toxic chemicals. Healey has also partnered with mayors to support struggling small businesses, especially during the early days of pandemic, and rehabilitate abandoned homes across the state to provide families with more opportunities for safe and affordable housing.

Healey’s running mate, Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll, is a former President and current member of the Massachusetts Mayors’ Association. She has served as Mayor since 2005 and has led on issues that matter the most to her community – improving public schools, supporting housing affordability, boosting economic empowerment, championing small businesses, and leading on climate action and resiliency in a historic seaside community.
