Karyn Polito Speaks to Chamber of Commerce Women s Luncheon at Gloucester House


The highest-ranking woman in Massachusetts' state government told those gathered for the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce's annual businesswomen's luncheon Thursday that their achievements are "an inspiration" to her, and a model for their daughters and other young women to follow.

Karyn Polito, the state's lieutenant governor who was elected last November as running mate to Gov. Charlie Baker, was introduced by the chamber's Ruth Pino as "a classic example for telling your daughters that you can be whatever you want to be."
