“When corporate interests tried to bring the Olympics to Boston, Chris Dempsey bravely and doggedly led the effort to push back and save Massachusetts taxpayers billions of dollars. He is exactly the kind of person that we need as our next State Auditor because he will always pursue greater transparency and accountability in state government and fight for the public interest,” said State Senator Jason Lewis.
“I am proud to have received the endorsement of Senator Jason Lewis. Senator Lewis has long been an advocate for public education, paid family leave, and he was a crucial leader in the fight for Massachusetts’s $15 minimum wage. It is dedicated public servants like Sen. Lewis that have inspired me to pursue the position of State Auditor, and I am proud to have his support,” said Chris Dempsey, Candidate for State Auditor.
Chris 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. Chris 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.
