From a clerk at Stop & Shop to MA's treasurer/receiver-general? That's not a stretch when we know that Deb Goldberg may have started at the bottom of the grocer, but that she is from the founding family. She picked up a Harvard MBA, has held numerous profit and non-profit executive positions, and has been on Brookline's Board of Selectman for six years (two as chair).
Her campaign site does not provide a platform per se. Instead, her intro and videos speak of enhancing the security of the working and retired, of getting small businesses the resources to grow and to add jobs, and of greater transparency in the office.
We’ll ask how she differs from the current treasurer and what she'd keep, add and change. Of course, we'll go for how she differentiates herself from the other candidates and how she figures to win.
