Farley-Bouvier Supports Grossman, Healey, Conroy

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier is backing Steven Grossman for governor.
 
"Steve Grossman has the administrative experience running the treasury and running his own business to be able to be a good executive, Farley-Bouvier said of the current state treasurer. "He has excellent working relationships with the Legislature and that's what is lacking with the current administration."
 
Farley-Bouvier is joining both Berkshire state Reps William "Smitty" Pignatelli and Paul Mark in supporting Grossman over Berkshires native Martha Coakley, the attorney general.
 
Particularly of importance to Farley-Bouvier, Grossman, as chairman of the Massachusetts School Building Authority, has helped moved the city's application for reimbursement to build a new Taconic High School through the process.
 
"It was stuck in the muck for years and we did as much as we could to keep it moving and work with the MSBA. When I got to the Legislature, one of the first people I talked to was Steve Grossman and he promised me then he would move this," she said. "And he has kept his word and more than one time he has had to intervene and say 'we told Pittsfield they would get their school and we're not going to let this get stuck anymore.' I have a great appreciation for that."
 
Farley-Bouvier is running unopposed during this state election so she has been getting involved in a few of the statewide races. Recently, she hosted a meet and greet to introduce attorney general candidate Maura Healey to voters.
 
"She is the person I feel has the most experience to do the job. She reflects a lot of my values when it comes to where priorities are in consumer protection," Farley-Bouvier said. "Her job is to be the people's lawyer and I feel she has the experience, passion and energy to do that."
 
In the treasurer's race to replace Grossman, Farley-Bouvier is supporting Tom Conroy.
 
"He is a colleague of mine in the house and he is really the architect of the minimum wage bill. He puts great value on working families. He has the financial experience that nobody else has working with both small businesses and big financial companies. I think he is going to be a great treasurer," Farley-Bouvier said.
 
The Democratic candidates must first win the primary, which is on Sept. 9. Grossman is up against Donald Berwick and Martha Coakley for the Democratic nomination and the primary winner will then be challenged by Republican Charlie Baker and independent Evan Falchuk.
 
Healey is trying to win the nomination against Warren Tolman. The winner will run against Republican John Miller in the general election. 
 
Conroy running against Barry Finegold and Deborah Goldberg for the Democratic nomination. The primary winner will then be up against Republican Mike Heffernan and Green-Rainbow Ian Jackson.
