I am a graduate of the Brookline Public Schools, Pomona College (B.A.), and Harvard Business School (M.B.A.). I have taught at the Northeastern University School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs. I live with my wife, Anna, in the first floor of a triple-decker in Brookline Village, a few blocks from where I grew up.

Hi, I'm Chris Dempsey.

I am a proven watchdog for the public interest running to be your next State Auditor.

I’m the son of public-school educators who met while teaching in the Boston Public Schools. Growing up, I saw my parents digging into their own pockets to pay for school supplies for their students, as teachers across the Commonwealth do to this day. That’s not right, and it’s the result of priorities and choices made on Beacon Hill. I’m running to be your next Auditor to make sure we use our public resources effectively and fairly, so that every person and every family can thrive and succeed.

I’ve done this work before. In 2015, I led the grassroots campaign No Boston Olympics…


“Chris Dempsey has a clear vision for the auditor’s office: using every tool at his disposal to advance policies that support greater equity, justice and sustainability for our communities.”

– Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley

Congresswoman Pressley endorses Chris Dempsey.

“I have listened carefully to the statements of the two Democratic candidates. They could not be more divergent, and I have concluded that Chris Dempsey is the best choice to be the next State Auditor.”

– Auditor Suzanne Bump

About the Office of the State Auditor

The State Auditor is one of only six state officials that is accountable directly to voters. The Auditor oversees a team of about 200 analysts and auditors who dig into every corner of the executive branch of state government. The office conducts audits, investigations, and studies to promote accountability and transparency, improve performance, and make government work better.

As the Chief Accountability Officer for state government in Massachusetts, the Auditor should be someone who is independent, who has experience working in state government, and who has stood up to powerful special interests to protect taxpayers and the public interest.
