Former Lt. Governor candidate Mike Lake endorses Steve Morabito for State Senate (February 2016)


I am proud to announce my endorsement of Steve Morabito as the Democratic nominee for State Senator for the First Suffolk and Middlesex district of Massachusetts. I have come across many public servants and politicians from my tenure at the White House to my campaign for Lt. Governor of Massachusetts, but Steve truly stands out for his passion, commitment to community, energy and the breadth and depth of his ideas. He has the commonsense leadership and experience that will make him the type of State Senator the people of the district deserve.

Frankly, beyond his obvious qualifications, the reason I am supporting Steve and ask the residents of the First Suffolk and Middlesex district to do the same is because Steve understands the importance of standing up for others, taking action, being accountable and being loyal to the community that you serve. We need more leaders just like Steve Morabito to emerge from this new generation.

I have known Steve for years and we both agree that tackling the opioid crisis statewide must be controlled with preventive education, cracking down on the over-prescribing of powerful prescription drugs and making sure mental health care is easily accessible for addicts. We also agree that we must properly support our public schools to ensure a brighter future for our state and the children who trust us to provide them the best education so that they may succeed in the 21st century.
Steve’s perspective on how we must be the number one state in providing support to our Veterans as well as his progressive approach on increasing the minimum wage to $15 per hour, fair wage equality, affordable housing, and his great interest in our senior citizens and his opposition to increasing fares on the MBTA makes him the ideal candidate for the Senate Seat.

I ask you to join me in supporting Steven Morabito for State Senator for the First Suffolk and Middlesex district. His understanding of the issues in the district and his commitment to public service will make him the strong and affective leader you need and deserve.
