Join us for the March Good Morning Breakfast with sponsor, the DoubleTree by Hilton of Leominster and our guest speaker, Martha Coakley, 2014 candidate for governor. This is our third in the series of candidates.
Attorney General Martha Coakley has dedicated the more than 20 years of her life to a career in public service. Coakley has a strong history as an advocate—not only for individuals and communities, but also for the best interests of the Commonwealth at large. During her eight years as the Middlesex District Attorney, Coakley established herself as a passionate advocate for public safety, not only bringing justice to crime victims and their families, but also emphasizing the importance of working with community leaders, schools, and law enforcement in a variety of diverse and multi-faceted prevention efforts. In January 2007, Coakley took office as the first female Attorney General of Massachusetts. Since taking office, she has focused on a variety of issues affecting the citizens of the Commonwealth, including cyber crime, identity theft, mortgage foreclosures, access to affordable healthcare, and environmental protection. Coakley received a B.A. degree, cum laude, from Williams College in 1975, and a J.D. degree from the Boston University School of Law in 1979. Coakley resides in Medford, with her husband, Thomas F. O’Connor, Jr, retired Cambridge PD.
