Goldberg Takes Mass Democratic Nomination for Treasurer

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

 

Deborah Goldberg emerged to win the Massachusetts Democratic primary for State Treasurer with from a field where the undecided vote stood at 60-percent at the end of August. With 91-percent of precincts reporting in she leads the pack with 43-percent of the vote. Barry Finegold commanded 31-percent of the vote and Thomas Conroy received 26-percent. 

She outspent her opponents Finegold by over a quarter-million dollars and Conroy by over one-million dollars.  Goldberg’s family established their fortune with the founding and expansion of the Stop and Shop grocery chain – later sold to a large chain in 1996. 

Goldberg worked for Stop and Shop after she earned a law degree from Boston College and an MBA from Harvard. Her prior political experience has come on the Board of Selectmen in the town of Brookline, where she served as Chairman. In the 2006 Democratic Primary, Goldberg finished second in a three-way race to then Worcester- Mayor Tim Murray with 33% of the vote. 

The key issues Goldberg campaigned on were wage equality, an enhanced college savings plan, expanded educational programs for financial literacy and examining whether Massachusetts should follow the example of North Dakota in founding a state-owned bank for lower-cost lending for infrastructure projects and lower-cost business development loans.

Golberg’s Republican opponent in November will be Michael James Heffernan – who has to-date raised a limited amount of funds at $250,000.
