Mr. Mike Lake was born in Melrose, MA. He graduated from Northeastern University in 2002 (being the first in his family to attend college) and is the first in Massachusetts history to complete five majors simultaneously: Finance, Political Science, Communications, Entrepreneurship and Management Information Systems. His education has not only allowed him to become President Bill Clinton’s special appointee in White House Operations, but a director of development for United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley, where he raised a record-breaking $5.8 million to reduce family homelessness and poverty in Massachusetts.
In our interview, we discussed his initiatives for Massachusetts as the next Lieutenant Governor and his personal journey in life. Our biggest topic of discussion was the minimum wage in Massachusetts ($8.00) and how the average family in Massachusetts must work three full-time jobs to support themselves. We also discussed his embarrassing moment at the White House during the Clinton Administration.
Today he is the President and CEO of Leading Cities, and is working to fulfill “The Massachusetts Promise” as the next Lieutenant Governor in Massachusetts. He wishes to build a community where children can attend the best schools in the world, where friends and neighbors can live in cities and towns that have the resources to tackle modern challenges, and where individuals can find meaningful employment that sufficiently supports them and their families.
