Deborah Goldberg to run for state treasurer

Deborah Goldberg, who finished second in the 2006 Democratic primary for lieutenant governor, will file papers to run for state treasurer this week, she told the Globe.

Goldberg, whose family founded Stop & Shop, said she planned to run on her business know-how and time in local government.

“It’s an office where I can bring all the skills in my background into play,” she said. “Number one, I’m a business person. I may not have actively worked in the business community for the last couple of years, but it’s like falling off a bike. I was trained from the time I was a kid to run a big business.”
