“In choosing a successor to capable state treasurer Steve Grossman […] voters should want someone who combines his experience, energy and willingness to explore new concepts. Deborah Goldberg has the potential to meet those standards. Ms. Goldberg brings a unique private-public perspective. As a member of the family that built Stop & Shop, she knows the challenges facing businesses. As a former member of the Board of Selectmen in Brookline, Ms. Goldberg knows government at its roots.

“There are few jobs in state government as wide-ranging as that of state treasurer. And that makes it critically important that the person hoping to fill the position come to it with a similarly wide range of experience. In the three-way Democratic field, Deb Goldberg is the one candidate who best fits that description.” See the full endorsement HERE.

Fall River Herald Newsfallriver_logo
Goldberg offers a laundry list of particularly innovative and ambitious ideas — large and small. Among other proposals: collaborating with other states in exploring the creation of a state-owned bank, which would hold onto state dollars to fund much-needed infrastructure projects; modernizing the state lottery with touch-screen technology and data analysis; exploring a more equitable distribution of lottery dollars; establishing college funds for families; and expanding the Massachusetts School Building Authority, which would play a key financing role in building a new B.M.C. Durfee High School… Deb Goldberg has the creative vision and practical know-how to continue to build upon Grossman’s sound stewardship of the state treasurer’s office.” See the full endorsement HERE.

Worcester MagazineWM
“The treasurer oversees a number of important offices, not the least of which is the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA). Why is that important? Because here in Worcester, there is a critical need for school renovation and building projects, particularly at Burncoat, Doherty and South High. We do not doubt that each of the candidates understands the significance of these, but Goldberg has literally walked the walk when it comes to assessing the situation. She was part of a group that traipsed up behind Doherty High School recently. If you are looking for signs that she knows a thing or two about finances, consider her family, as noted recently by the Boston Globe, built Stop & Shop into a powerhouse regional supermarket chain. The treasurer also oversees the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission (ABCC). We would like to see Goldberg address the issue of beer and wine licenses and how many are afforded to each city and town. Is it time to change the process? A former selectman, we believe Goldberg will swim with the big fish in Boston while remembering the small ponds that fed her.” The full article can be viewed here.

BostonCourantBoston Courant
“For treasurer, we enthusiastically support Deb Goldberg. Long before Arthur T. Demoulas showed us the importance of treating workers with respect and outstanding compensation, Goldberg and her family used these principles to grow a small grocery store into Stop & Shop. Her knowledge of the arcane aspects of pension fund investments and her desire to keep the lottery viable make her an ideal state treasurer.”
