Mike Day.jpgA sizeable crowd gathered last Thursday as Stoneham resident Michael Day announced his candidacy for the Middlesex and Essex District seat in the state Senate. If elected, Day would represent Lynnfield, Malden, Melrose (Wards 1-5), Reading, Stoneham, and Wakefield.

The seat is currently held by Senator Richard Tisei, who is running for lieutenant governor alongside Republican Charlie Baker. Day, a Democrat, could face Republican candidate Craig Spadafora of Malden in the November election.
 
“I am overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and support we have received for this campaign already, including the fantastic turnout for the formal kick-off,” Day said on Monday. “The energy in that room was a direct reflection of what we’ve been hearing as we speak with people in the district.”
 
In his address, Day called for new leadership that represents the values and interests of all residents. The first step is to change the way business is conducted on Beacon Hill, he said.

“We need to restore dignity to the State House,” he said. “And we need to do these things now, not next month or next year.”

A graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Day earned a law degree from Georgetown University. He currently works as a litigator for the Boston-based law firm Mintz Levin.
 
If elected to the Senate, Day said he would support small businesses, create jobs and work to cut the cost of health care. On his campaign website, Day describes his commitment to providing quality education to all children. 

"That means we do not cut programs like music or art or shop classes. That means we invest in early education and pre-kindergarten. That means we do not believe that standardized test scores are the only measure of education," his website states.
