Steve Markey

Steve Markey is an American politician representing Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate. He was selected in a 2013 special election to fill out John Kerry’s term after Kerry accepted Secretary of State duties.

He practices throughout Maryland’s state and federal courts and handles general litigation; personal injury claims; medical, legal, and other professional malpractice; slip and fall incidents and products liability cases.

Early Life and Education

Prior to his Senate run, Markey represented a suburban district north of Boston for 37 years and introduced important legislation–such as fuel economy standards increases and improved oversight over the telecom industry.

Markey co-sponsored the Green New Deal alongside Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, an emerging progressive star who is injecting new life into the Democratic Party. Additionally, Markey has taken an active role on issues impacting youth like including funding for gun violence research into the 2020 budget bill.

Markey is making his campaign against Gomez about his legislative record. To tap into Gen Z enthusiasm, his campaign amplifies student memes while encouraging them to sign up for his email list and sign his voter sheet. So far it appears successful; one poll found he holds a slight edge in the Democratic primary election.

Professional Career

Steve Markey has over 28 years of experience working in the financial industry. Currently, he serves as Arkadios Wealth Advisors of San Antonio Texas where he passed his Series 63 exam which allowed him to be recognized as a registered investment advisor.

Tonight in Lowell, both Democratic challengers for governor are facing off for the second time. Candidates face off under questions from students; Lynch is frequently pressed about his stance on abortion issues but usually responds by citing his support of Planned Parenthood funding during his days as senator.

Another student took issue with his support of the Keystone pipeline, drawing comparisons between it and outside spending that angers leftists and his support of it – likening both to each other – and criticism against Republicans for permitting unlimited, undisclosed contributions that fuel it all.

Achievement and Honors

Markey entered a twelve-candidate Democratic primary for Congressman Torbert Macdonald’s seat when he died, winning with ease a special election and serving 37 years – making him one of the longest serving members.

He has amassed an impressive list of legislative achievements, including climate change, energy policy, net neutrality and antitrust regulation, consumer safety, Alzheimer’s disease, women’s rights, nuclear nonproliferation, COVID-19 vaccine equity and economic opportunity.

Markey wrote the law to create Perkins School for the Blind in 2010, America’s premier institution for those who are deafblind. Additionally, he played an integral part in creating the first national commission to promote independent living and community integration for people who are blind or visually impaired.

Personal Life

Markey served in the House for 32 years before winning a special election to fill John Kerry’s Senate seat in 2013. Since then, he has been elected for full terms twice; first as a special election and again through full elections. Markey’s legislative focus has been communication and high technology policy such as net neutrality, Internet privacy protections and increased funding for public broadcasting; his economic mantra was “ruthless Darwinian competition that would bring joy to Adam Smith” which helped break up anti-consumer and anti-innovative monopolies in electricity, long distance telephone services, cable television services as well as international satellite services.

Residents in Lexington and Malden report regularly seeing Senator Edward Markey walking around, going to coffee shops like Boston Market or attending important community meetings – but his water bills suggest otherwise.

Net Worth

Markey was elected to Malden’s State Representative position after John Kerry assumed the secretary of state role, filling his remaining term through 2013. Prior to winning this special election in 2013, Markey had served in the U.S. House from 1976 – 2013.

As well as his legal work, Mr. Schechter is engaged in various charitable causes and serves on several nonprofit boards in his local area. His practice specializes in trust administration, individual and corporate tax preparation as well as business and estate planning services.

Shannon Liss-Riordan, a workers’ rights attorney from New Bedford is expected to pose Pemberton a challenge during their primary election this year. Pemberton promised in his campaign video to bring fresh perspective to the Senate as evidenced by Representative Ayanna Pressley’s success at unseating 10-term Rep. Michael Capuano during last year’s primary.
