There are milestones in everyone's life. A birth. A new challenge. A new journey. Today marks one such day for me and my family. Today, I stood with family and friends in Hyde Park, MA at the Georgetown Housing Complex and announced my formal candidacy to be your next Treasurer.
We gathered at Georgetown because for me it's where it all began. The son of two teachers, I was born and lived early in my life in public housing before settling in Tewksbury and later Andover. I learned so many lessons from my parents as I watched them struggle to provide a life for me. We weren't poor and we certainly weren't rich, we were middle class in every way.
I fought hard for everything in my life. I worked for every dollar I have made and earned every success my family and I enjoy today. Throughout my public service career, I fought to make sure middle class families had more money in their pockets by increasing the minimum wage and passing financial education legislation to help families protect themselves from abuse and keep their homes.
As Treasurer, I'll protect every dollar of taxpayer money the same way. I will be a treasurer you can trust, a treasurer who will fight for the middle class each and every day.
I am living proof that the Massachusetts Dream is alive and well. I want to provide the same opportunities for you. Join with me today by logging onto our new website www.barryfinegold.com and signing up to join our team. Thank you!!
