Lt. Governor Candidate Mike Lake Greets Local Supporters at Breakfast Event in Framingham

(Framingham, MA- December 12, 2013): Democratic Candidate for Lt. Governor of Massachusetts in 2014 Mike Lake, a Clinton White House appointee and President and CEO of Leading Cities, hosted a casual meet-and-greet breakfast for a group of approximately 30 customers and supporters at J&M Diner this morning.

“I thank the team at the J&M diner for allowing us to visit with their customers this morning,” said Lake. “Opportunities like this provide me with a chance to better understand the real needs, concerns and the ideas of people across Massachusetts.”

The event followed on the heels of former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis’ official endorsement of Lake on Wednesday night to a packed crowd of over 200 at the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in Boston. The endorsement is only the second time Governor Dukakis has endorsed a candidate in a contested statewide primary election since he left office.

Lake was appointed by President Clinton as Special Assistant for White House Operations and is the President and CEO of Leading Cities, an international organization that focuses on exchanging solutions to municipal challenges and creating jobs through business development. Lake’s vision for the Lt. Governor’s office involves working to realize what he calls the Massachusetts Promise, “a promise of opportunity that comes with High-Quality Education, Job Creation, and Strong Communities.”
