State Senator Barry Finegold closed out the month of June by posting more than $150,000 raised and over $575,000 cash on hand. With this financial success comes the endorsements of five municipal leaders, including Braintree Mayor Joseph Sullivan, Medford Mayor Michael McGlynn, Pittsfield Mayor Daniel Bianchi, Beverly Mayor Michael Cahill, and Haverhill Mayor James Fiorentini.
“I am thrilled to have exceeded another one of our steep fundraising goals,” said Sen. Finegold. “And, that our achievement is further highlighted by the support of these incredible leaders from across the Commonwealth. Mayors Sullivan, McGlynn, Bianchi, Cahill, and Fiorentini know I’ll be a Treasurer they can trust, a Treasurer who will stand tall when it comes to protecting families, taxpayer money, school buildings, and transportation infrastructure within their communities.”
With these new endorsements, Sen. Finegold now has the support of 15 mayors from across the Commonwealth in his race for State Treasurer. Additionally, he continues to outpace fundraising efforts by all others vying for Treasurer. Just last quarter he raised over $310,000 with donations coming in from almost 1,200 supporters.
“I am truly grateful to everyone who has helped grow our resources and also to each elected official that has chosen to support my campaign," said Finegold. "Our fundraising numbers demonstrate that the network we’ve built spans across the entire Commonwealth and that voters are responding to our message. I know that with my combined private and public sector experience, I am prepared to lead the Treasurer’s Office from day one. I am confident that with the momentum we’ve gained so far and the trust and generosity of all our supporters, we will have a great victory come Sept. 9.”
