Republican Candidate For Mass. Treasurer Stops In Pittsfield

Jim Levulis

The Republican candidate running for Massachusetts treasurer recently campaigned in Pittsfield.Mike Heffernan is touting his two decades working in Citigroup’s markets and banking divisions and experience as co-founder of mobile-IT firm Mobiquity in the race for treasurer.

“There is a real feeling for a change in leadership out there,” Heffernan said. “So it’s not really Democrats and Republicans, it’s a real chance to have a change in leadership and bring real, extensive private sector experience into the executive branch. I think that’s what people really want.”

Heffernan did not face a primary challenger heading into November’s race against Democrat Deb Goldberg and Green-Rainbow Party candidate Ian Jackson. Treasurer Steve Grossman lost to Attorney General Martha Coakley in the Democratic Primary for governor.
