Mary Hurley Officially Steps Down from Governor’s Council

After three terms on the Massachusetts Governor’s Council, I have officially stepped down from the 8th district seat to grant the opportunity to serve western Massachusetts to another.

Working with Governor Charlie Baker, Lt. Governor Karyn Polito and all my colleagues over the past six years has been an amazing and rewarding experience, but the time has come for me to pass the reins to another. I am excited to see just how much Tara Jacobs will accomplish for our region and the commonwealth as a whole. I wish the best to Tara, the other new members of the council and Governor-Elect Maura Healey.

As a public servant for more than three decades, I am grateful to both those who worked alongside me and those who supported me. I especially want to thank the people of Springfield and all of western Massachusetts who placed their faith and trust in me when they voted for me as city councilor, mayor and governor’s councilor. I appreciate you all and forward to potentially serving in another capacity in the future.
