ERVING – Jay Gonzalez, Democratic Candidate for Governor, will be at the French King Restaurant, 129 French King Highway, Erving on Sunday, August 12 at noon to meet with citizens and engage on their issues and ideas.

Jay Gonzalez has spent his career to improve the lives of people in Massachusetts. On January 30, 2017, Jay launched his campaign for Governor. His campaign is motivated by his commitment to public service and his belief that, if we aim high, work hard, and support each other along the way, we can make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.

“I have an ambitious agenda, and I have the leadership experience in the public and private sectors to deliver on it. Governor Baker has been too satisfied with the status quo, and he too often sits on the sidelines when we need him. He has been a status quo, wait and see Governor. That's not good enough. Particularly now. President Trump is threatening our values and threatening to take us backwards. Now more than ever, we need leadership right here in Massachusetts. Too much is at stake for too many people,” said Gonzalez.

“Now more than ever, we need a Governor who stands up for every single person and who makes it crystal clear that hate and discrimination will not be tolerated. And we need a Governor who gets that too many working families are still being left behind. We need a Governor who works with a sense of urgency to make sure they have a fair shot at a better future,” said Gonzalez

Through his work providing health insurance coverage for low-income residents, helping cities and towns build new schools and fire stations, and managing the state budget for Governor Deval Patrick during the Great Recession, Jay has always put people first. Jay has been a fierce advocate for high-quality early education for all of our children, and is the former Chairman of the Massachusetts Board of Early Education and Care.

Inspired by Governor Deval Patrick’s vision and leadership, he joined the Patrick Administration in 2007 and served as the Governor’s Secretary of Administration and Finance during the Great Recession. He also served as Chairman of the Board of the Massachusetts Health Connector, where he oversaw implementation of Massachusetts’ health care reform, and he co-chaired the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center.
