Jay Gonzalez in Pittsfield during a recent campaign stump.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier is backing Jay Gonzalez for governor.
 
On Wednesday, the Pittsfield Democrat endorsed the former secretary of administration and finance in under Gov. Deval Patrick's administration. Gonzalez is running in the Democratic primary against environmental and civic activist Bob Massie and former Newton Mayor Setti Warren.
 
"He is committed to being the governor of the whole state and we've lost that since Gov. Patrick," Farley-Bouvier said of Gonzalez. "He understands that the Berkshires have been left behind and he understands the details of economic development in Berkshire County."
 
In particulular, Farley-Bouvier said, Gonzalez's priority on early education stands out and the Pittsfield progressive Democrat likes that he is not only progressive but also pragmatic.
 
During Gonzalez's time with the Patrick administration, he chaired the Massachusetts Health Connector Board and later took a job with Celticare Health and New Hampshire Healthy Families. 
 
Farley-Bouvier said she decided to endorse early in the year because "I think 2018 is going to be an important one. I think it is important organization starts early." 
 
The Democratic winner of the primary is expected to take on Republican incumbent Charlie Baker.
