Governor Baker voices support for Peter Tedeschi

Governor Charlie Baker headlined a fundraiser for Peter Tedeschi’s Congressional campaign Friday

PEMBROKE – Last Friday, May 18th, Peter Tedeschi, candidate for U.S. Congress in the Massachusetts 9th District, held a fundraiser at Indian Pond Country Club in Kingston, drawing around 200 guests. Governor Charlie Baker, the most popular governor in America, headlined the fundraiser and spoke to the crowd about the opportunity for the district to elect Peter Tedeschi.

Governor Baker spoke about the outcome of the 2014 election, in which he won statewide by just under 2 points, winning the 9th Congressional district by nearly 12. “While the Lieutenant Governor likes to remind me that it was Worcester County that put us over the edge [in 2014],” Baker says, “The simple truth of the matter is there were several other places where people voted for change, they voted for reform, they voted for fiscal discipline, and they voted for accountability, transparency, and competition. One of those places is the district Peter is running in.”

The Governor went on to say, ”This is a district that is willing to consider alternatives, that wants change, and is willing to vote for reformers and people with private sector experience, like Peter. He has exactly the kind of background, he has exactly the kind of history, and he has exactly the kind of experience the people in this district are looking for. I can’t wait for election day, when Karyn and I, hopefully, will have an opportunity to work Peter in his new role as your Congressman from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.”

“I am honored to have the Governor’s support for my campaign,” says Tedeschi. “He has shown true leadership and bipartisanship while making the government of the Commonwealth more efficient and accountable. I hope to be a partner to the Baker-Polito Administration in Congress, for the benefit of the 9th District and all of Massachusetts.”


Peter Tedeschi is running for Congress to represent the 9th Congressional District, where he can put his values and many years of leadership and business experience to use in the service of others.  Peter is a lifelong resident of the South Shore, where he and his wife Katherine raised their three children in Norwell. He is the former President and CEO of Tedeschi Food Shops and a proud member of the Executive Board of Directors for Friendship Home.
