WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed Deb Goldberg for Massachusetts Treasurer.
“Deb Goldberg has an impressive background of leadership in public service, business, and nonprofit advocacy,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. “Her rich tri-sector experience is exactly what Massachusetts women and families need, and the EMILY’s List community – now more than three million members strong – is proud to help her become the next Massachusetts Treasurer.”
Deb Goldberg served six years on the Brookline Board of Selectmen, including two years as its Chair. She is the President of Adoptions with Love, serves on the Executive Committee of The Center of Collaborative Education, and is the Massachusetts Senate President’s appointee to the Treasurer’s Commonwealth Covenant Fund. Before that, she worked for her family business, rising from retail clerk to several executive positions within the company. She is a graduate of Boston University, Boston College Law School, and Harvard Business School.
EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $350 million to support pro-choice Democratic women candidates – making it one of the most successful political action committees in the country. Throughout its 29 year history, the organization has recruited and trained over 9,000 women to run, worked to elect 102 pro-choice Democratic women to the House, 19 to the Senate, 10 governors, and over five hundred women to state and local office. Since its founding in 1985, EMILY’s List helped elect 97% of the Democratic women of color in Congress, including every single Latina, African American, and Asian American Democratic woman currently serving. And during the 2011-2012 cycle, EMILY’s List had the largest number of members and donors in its history and raised a record-breaking $52 million dollars. With the help of this growing community — now more than three million members strong — EMILY’s List helped elect an historic number of candidates in 2012 including 19 new women to the House, six Senate incumbents, three new Senators, and 186 state and local officials.
