Boston – The campaign of Mike Lake, Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor for Massachusetts, earned five additional endorsements Wednesday.

The endorsements add to the more than 40 endorsements that Lake has earned since he launched his campaign in March 2013. In recent weeks, Lake has amassed support from major organizations, including the National Organization for Women (NOW), Bay State Stonewall Democrats, National Association of Government Employees (NAGE) and major local leaders, including State Sens. Linda Dorcena Forry and Sonia Chang-Diaz and Boston City Councilor Tito Jackson.

Lake said that he was proud to have broad, statewide support.

“I am proud to have the support of these esteemed leaders,” Lake said. “Since we launched the campaign more than 18 months ago, I have run a grassroots and inclusive campaign that runs on ideas that help,” Lake said. “Voters and my endorsers understand that I am passionate about creating new opportunities in job growth, healthcare, education and homelessness.”

A former Clinton appointee, Lake launched his campaign for Lieutenant Governor in March 2013. He is the President and CEO of Leading Cities and has amassed support from activists, business leaders, labor unions and government leaders, including former Governor Michael Dukakis.
