Salem Mayor To Run For Lieutenant Governor

January 11, 2022

Salem mayor Kim Driscoll wants to run for a new post in Boston.

The fifth-term mayor of Salem and Democrat announced on Tuesday that she is running for lieutenant governor.

“Mayors like me have been on the frontlines of our most urgent fights — from COVID-19 response and recovery to racial equality, the climate crisis, strengthening our public schools and making housing more affordable,” Driscoll said in a video announcing her candidacy. “At this moment of change, so much is at stake. We need leaders who understand and can empower communities. Our cities and towns need a new voice on Beacon Hill.”

That makes her the fifth Democrat in the race. The others are state Senator Adam Hinds (D-Pittsfield), state Senator Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow), state representative Tami Gouveia (D-Acton), and Babson College lecturer Bret Bero.
