Mike Lake, a Democratic candidate for Lt. Governor of Massachusetts in 2014, hosted a campaign meet-and-greet Thursday morning at J&M Diner in Framingham with about 30 individuals.
Lake, a Clinton White House appointee, is President and CEO of Leading Cities.
“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’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.”
