In full transparency, the following is a press release from the Healey-Driscoll team submitted to SOURCE media.
BOSTON – After a decisive victory on Tuesday night, Maura Healey and Kim Driscoll announced that Lieutenant Governor-elect Driscoll will serve as Chair of the transition team. They also launched a website, HealeyDriscollTransition.com, which asks the people of Massachusetts to submit their ideas for the incoming administration.
“Maura and I will be a Governor and Lieutenant-Governor for everyone, and our Administration will reflect our commitment to meeting people where they are. That’s why we want to gather input directly from all members of our community,” said Driscoll. “We encourage the people of Massachusetts to share their ideas for how we can work together to move Massachusetts forward.”
“I’m proud that Mayor Driscoll will be at the helm of our transition team. She truly comes from the ‘Get Stuff Done’ wing of government,” said Healey. “With more than two decades of experience in city government, I’m confident that Mayor Driscoll has what it takes to build a team that’s ready to hit the ground running on day one to deliver for the people of Massachusetts.”
The announcement of Driscoll as Transition Chair came after Healey and Driscoll spent Wednesday afternoon, November 9, meeting with Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito.
Both the outgoing and incoming administrations pledged to maintain a strong, collaborative relationship to ensure a smooth transition. Healey and Driscoll then visited Girls Inc. of Lynn, where they met with elementary, middle and high school aged girls and encouraged them to never give up on their dreams.
Gov. Baker chose not to seek re-election. The Healey-Polito team easily defeated the Republican Governor candidate Geoff Diehl on Tuesday.
