Khazei Chalks Up Globe, Clark Endorsements

Community service leader Alan Khazei received two high-profile endorsements in the past 24 hours for his dark horse bid for Massachusetts Senate.

On Monday, Khazei got the nod from former N.A.T.O. Supreme Allied Commander and 2004 Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark. In a statement, Clark cited Khazei’s leadership as co-founder of national community service program City Year.

“In City Year, I witnessed the closest thing I have seen to the military in civilian service,” Clark wrote. “I was so inspired by Alan Khazei and his program that I signed on to work with Alan and President Clinton to bring City Year to Little Rock, Arkansas.”

And on Sunday, the Boston Globe endorsed Khazei in an editorial, writing that he “offers a strong vision for success in the Senate, channeling the energy of activist groups and private-sector policy incubators while dedicating himself to the laborious task of building legislative coalitions.”
