Brian Sims to Run for Lt. Governor

“After 10 years in the State House, I’ve taken the lessons that my parents taught me and reinforced them in my work as a legislator: to take responsibility, commit to service, be courageous, and push for fairness. I’m ready to take these values from representing our state’s largest city to leading the Commonwealth.
