Beth is a mother, wife and small business owner. Among her proudest accomplishments is raising a family of three boys with her husband Ray.
Beth was the first woman executive director of the Massachusetts Republican Party. She then became executive director of the Massachusetts State Lottery. During her tenure, the state lottery was recognized as the most successful in the country as well as the most efficient.
Beth was a member of Governor Mitt Romney’s cabinet as Director of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation, where she oversaw seven state agencies including the Department of Banks, Insurance, Telecommunications and Energy as well as the Divisions of Professional Licensure, Energy Resources, Standards and the State Racing Commission.
At Consumer Affairs, Beth was responsible for implementing a major reform of the auto insurance market that lowered rates for motorists. Her office was recognized by the Pioneer Institute for reducing unnecessary regulations. She led consumer education awareness on a host of issues, including identity theft, home improvement contracting and financial literacy. “Hi-Fi,” her office’s high school financial literacy program, was the first-ever Massachusetts state government-administered program aimed at promoting a personal finance curriculum in high schools across the Commonwealth on a voluntary basis.
Beth also is a small businesswoman and volunteers on several boards in her community.
Beth earned her BA from the University of Connecticut and received her Masters in Business Administration from Northeastern University.
Beth does not have the typical resume of a political candidate. Instead she has a life time of hard work and experience solving problems and finding solutions. She values common sense above labels and conformity. If given the opportunity to serve, she will approach each day with a manager’s critical eye, an entrepreneur’s optimistic spirit and a mother’s empathetic ear.
