Deval Patrick endorses U.S. Rep. Mike Capuano for re-election

Patrick was elected Governor of Massachusetts in 2006 and served two terms

BOSTON – Thursday, May 3, 2018 – “Mike is one of the most tenacious and determined people I know, in or out of government. When he believes in something or someone, he won’t let go and never stops trying to get the job done. He believed in me when few others would take a chance on a novice candidate, and stuck with me as a consistent ally to meet the needs of our citizens, especially through the Great Recession. That’s why I stand with him now,” said Patrick. “Everything about his challenger and her campaign makes me proud. But Mike was with me in the trenches and I appreciate how hard he worked with me in tough times and out of public view for the good of the people of the Commonwealth. He consistently stood with me on important issues like the Green Line extension and improving the Fairmount Line, increasing affordable housing opportunities, and rebuilding community health centers. That’s why I’m supporting his re-election to Congress.”

“I am truly grateful to have the support of Governor Patrick, a progressive champion and a leader on issues that truly impact the lives of our constituents. Whether it was expanding health care, stimulating the local economy and job growth, innovating in the schools, or protecting our precious environmental resources, Deval focused every day on moving Massachusetts forward,” stated Capuano.
