  • Deval Laurdine Patrick (born July 31, 1956) is the 71st Governor of Massachusetts. A member of the Democratic Party, Patrick served as an Assistant United States Attorney General under President Bill Clinton. He is the state's first African-American governor and the third of only four African Americans to be elected governor by any U.S. state, after PBS Pinchback of Louisiana, Douglas Wilder of Virginia, and preceeding David Patterson of New York. Born to and raised by a single mother on the South Side of Chicago, Patrick earned a scholarship to Milton Academy in Massachusetts in the eighth grade. He went on to attend Harvard College and Harvard Law School, where he was President of the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau. After graduating he practiced law with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. He later joined a Boston law firm, where he was named a partner at the age of 34. In 1994, President Bill Clinton appointed Patrick Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, where he worked on issues including racial profiling and police misconduct. Patrick returned to Boston in 1997 to work in private law. In the following years he worked as general counsel for Texaco in New York City and Coca-Cola in Atlanta, which were both facing large racial discrimination settlements. When he announced his candidacy for the 2006 gubernatorial election in Massachusetts, Patrick was initially seen as a dark horse candidate, but ultimately won the Democratic primary against veteran politicians Thomas Reilly and Chris Gabrielli. He went on to defeat Republican Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey in the general election, and was inaugurated in January 2007. In his first term, Patrick oversaw the implementation of the state's 2006 health care reform program which had been enacted under Mitt Romney, increased funding to education and life sciences, won a federal Race to the Top education grant, passed an overhaul of state transportation industries to create the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, and increased the state sales tax from 5% to 6.25%. Under Patrick, Massachusetts joined the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and greatly expanded services to veterans. His two legislative battles to implement casino gambling failed: he could not win the approval of the House of Representatives in March 2008, and he vetoed a bill passed by the legislature in August 2010 for going too far. Patrick was re-elected in the 2010 gubernatorial election against Republican Charlie Baker and Independent Tim Cahill. His second term began on January 6, 2011, and in an interview with The Boston Globe, Patrick declared he will not seek re-election in 2014.

  • Deval Laurdine Patrick, född den 31 juli 1956 i Chicago, Illinois, är en amerikansk jurist och politiker, som är guvernör i Massachusetts sedan den 7 januari 2007. Deval L. Patrick föddes i Chicagos South Side 1956 i en underprivilegierad afrikansk-amerikansk familj. Fadern, jazzmusikern Pat Patrick, lämnade modern, som fick klara barnens uppfostran och skolgång med hjälp av det sociala välfärdssystemet. En av Devals lärare ansåg att han borde satsa på vidare studier och såg till att han fick stöd från organisationen A Better Chance för high school-studier vid den ansedda privatskolan Milton Academy i Milton, Massachusetts. Därifrån kunde han gå vidare till Harvard College. Efter ett års arbete för FN i Afrika fortsatte han vid Harvard Law School där han blev Juris Doctor. Han har därefter tjänstgjort som advokat vid advokatbyråer och i olika företag, bland annat Coca-Cola Company, samt som styrelseledamot i bland annat United Airlines. Parallellt med den ordinarie verksamheten har han engagerat sig i frivilligt rättshjälpsarbete. Han har även tjänstgjort som advokat för NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. I denna verksamhet kom han i kontakt med dåvarande Arkansasguvernören Bill Clinton. 1994 utsågs Patrick av president Clinton till biträdande justitieminister (Assistant Attorney General) med ansvar för medborgarrättsfrågor. Han fick här leda arbetet med flera kontroversiella frågor och rättsfall rörande diskriminering och hatbrott. 1997 återgick han till sin advokatbyrå i Boston samt till verksamhet inom det privata näringslivet. Emellertid beslöt han år 2005 åter att engagera sig i politiken och lyckades vinna demokraternas nominering som kandidat vid guvernörsvalet 2006.
