Steven Grossman is the current Democratic Massachusetts State Treasurer. He was first elected in 2011 and assumed office is serving in his first term.[1] His position is up for election in 2014.

As treasurer, Grossman is not restricted by term limits and would be eligible to run again in 2014 except that he is campaigning for election to a different office in 2014- Governor of Massachusetts.[2] The seat will be open in 2014 because the current incumbent, Democrat Deval Patrick, has decided not to seek re-election.[3]

According to state law, Grossman's gubernatorial bid precludes him from seeking re-election to his current post, since governor and state treasurer are simultaneously elected executive offices in the Massachusetts government.

Before becoming state treasurer, Grossman worked for his family business, Grossman Marketing group, and served as its CEO. His ample private sector experience is balanced by decades of service to political causes and activist organizations. Grossman's ties to, and influence within, the Democratic Party apply both on the state and national level, having formerly been chairman for both the Massachusetts and National Democratic parties.[1] He also held the position of president of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) for five years.
