Bob Massie is running for U.S. Senate against Republican Scott Brown and will address the Lexington Democratic Town Committee on Wednesday, May 18th at 7pm at the Cary Memorial Library.
Bob Massie's has built a career as a minister, activist, candidate and non-profit executive.
Bob’s journey of service started as a student at Princeton working for justice in South Africa and the US health care system. After graduating, as a young preacher in Manhattan in the early 1980s, Bob founded a homeless shelter to serve those most in need. Faced with a truly broken system of corporate irresponsibility, he earned a doctorate from Harvard Business School to better understand the corporate world and economic growth, so he could make change at home and abroad.
Combining his education and his passion for justice, Bob served as President of Ceres, the nation's largest coalition of investors and environmental groups. He co-founded the Global Reporting Initiative, the leading international standard for reporting corporate performance on energy, labor, the environment, and human rights. The GRI has since led dozens of the world’s largest corporations to reform their worst practices and better serve their communities.
In 1994, Bob traveled across Massachusetts as the Democratic Lieutenant Governor candidate, learning about the Commonwealth and listening to the hopes of its people.
Since that time Bob faced and overcame daunting medical challenges. We are glad he is here with us today, healthy, active and ready to campaign for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate.
