Healey and Driscoll to Hold Inauguration Celebration at TD Garden
BOSTON — Governor-elect Maura Healey and Lieutenant Governor-elect Kim Driscoll announced the details of their inaugural celebration.
Following the swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 5, 2023, they will hold an evening celebration at TD Garden inspired by the theme, "Moving the Ball Forward," a nod to their time as college and professional basketball players and the history made with this election. This event will mark the nation's first all-women executive team to serve a state.
"This inauguration will be a celebration of teamwork, positivity and breaking barriers – and there's no better place to hold the event than at TD Garden," said Governor-elect Healey. "It's about looking forward to the future and engaging directly with people about how we can deliver for them across this Commonwealth."
"We hope that anyone who attends this celebration will feel proud of Massachusetts' history and excited about the bright future ahead," added Lieutenant Governor-elect Driscoll. "We're looking forward to honoring the fearless and groundbreaking women who made this moment possible, and laying the foundation for those who will follow us."
The Jan 5 inauguration will mark the first time an all-women ticket is sworn in to lead a state in American history, and make Healey the first lesbian Governor in the country. Through their inaugural events, Healey and Driscoll plan to honor the people and movements that helped pave the way to make this historic moment possible.
The event will be accessible and inclusive for all interested in attending with tickets becoming available in the coming weeks. More details on the timing, location, ticketing, program, and additional events will be available in the coming weeks
