“These three strong and independent leaders will deliver for Massachusetts students, educators, and families,” said AFT Massachusetts President Beth Kontos. “Along with our endorsed candidate for Governor, Maura Healey, AFT Massachusetts is proud to be endorsing a slate of proven women leaders who will make state government a true partner to our local schools as we work to recover from the effects of the pandemic.”
 
“Over the next four years, we have a lot of work to do to help our students get back on track, fully implement the Student Opportunity Act to fund our schools, and make affordable, high-quality public college an option for every student in Massachusetts,” said AFT Massachusetts Secretary-Treasurer Brant Duncan. “Tami, Shannon, and Diana are the champions we need fighting for students and educators on Beacon Hill.”
 
“In the legislature, Tami Gouveia has been a steadfast advocate for students, educators, and our families,” said Kontos. “We’re delighted to be supporting her in her campaign for Lieutenant Governor, where she’ll be able to lift up the voices of those most affected by state government and ensure that our voices are heard when important decisions are being made.”
 
“Shannon Liss-Riordan has been a true champion for working people her entire career, from taking on Big Tech in court, to recovering millions in stolen wages for low-income workers,” said Kontos. “We know that as Attorney General, she will stand up against predatory student lenders, education privatizers, and other special interests who want to take advantage of our communities.”
 
“Diana DiZoglio has been an independent watchdog on Beacon Hill, taking on wasteful privatization schemes and fighting for the true government transparency we deserve,” said Kontos. “As Auditor, we can trust her to protect public dollars from fraud and abuse, and shine a light on where our tax dollars go to ensure that the will of the people is being fulfilled.”
