FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BOSTON – Support for newcomer Mike Heffernan, candidate for State Treasurer, is growing rapidly as his opponent, a well-known career politician, remains under 50 percent, according to the latest UMass Amherst/WBZ-TV poll released this afternoon. Among likely voters, Heffernan, an outsider with 30 years of experience in the financial services industry, has moved to within 12 points of his opponent, who ran and lost for statewide office in 2006.

"This poll shows voters are responding to our message that experience matters in the Office of Treasurer, and Mike Heffernan is the only candidate in this race with both the real-world experience and education to do the job," said Brendan Moss, Heffernan's campaign manager. "Voters know our opponent and a majority are looking for another option. As we are able to introduce Mike to more voters, his support will continue to climb."

Of 437 likely voters polled last week, 35 percent chose Heffernan while 47 percent chose Deb Goldberg, a political insider.

In reporting on the race, the Boston Business Journal wrote that Heffernan "is the only candidate in the race with an understanding of complex securities markets and experience operating a profitable business."

Heffernan is running for State Treasurer after 30 years in the financial services industry where he held executive positions at Citigroup, Salomon Brothers and NatWest. He most recently co-founded a mobile IT company, Mobiquity Inc., which has about 300 employees.

As State Treasurer, Heffernan has pledged to:
- Invest $1 billion in new and growing employers by expanding the state’s Small Business Banking Partnership.
- Increase local aid to cities and towns by improving the efficiency of the Lottery and returning a greater percentage of profits to municipalities. Since 2007, unrestricted local aid to cities and towns has been cut by $400 million and property taxes have increased an average 25%.
- Reduce the unfunded pension liabilities and the state's debt, which is the highest in the nation. The Massachusetts pension system is only 60% funded and received an F grade from the Urban Institute. Heffernan will lower investment fees and direct 10 percent of casino tax revenue to reducing the unfunded pension liability and reducing debt.

A native of Southborough, Heffernan is the son of a public school educator and graduated from Algonquin Regional High School. He worked his way through Georgetown University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in economics, and New York University, where he earned a master’s in business administration. Later in his career, he earned a master's in public administration from the Harvard Kennedy School. Heffernan and his wife, Peggy, have three teen-aged children and live in Wellesley.
