STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, DEC. 6, 2017.....Auditor Suzanne Bump launched her re-election campaign Wednesday morning not with a polished video or a grand event but with a simple press release.

"My office builds trust by showing that government is capable of self-examination and self-correction. The Office of the State Auditor is ending the status quo and bringing the state into the 21st century. I look forward to talking to voters about the work we have done and my plans for the future," Bump said in a statement.

Prior to serving as auditor, Bump was a state representative, a lobbyist and labor and workforce development secretary in Gov. Deval Patrick's administration. The Boston College and Suffolk University School of Law graduate was married for 36 years to the late Paul McDevitt.
