Founder of Massachusetts United Independent Party Evan Falchuk to Visit Stonehill

April 10, 2015


Evan Falchuk

The Martin Institute at Stonehill College will host founder of the new United Independent Party in Massachusetts Evan Falchuk on Monday, April 20th at 11:30 a.m. The event, which is free and open to the public, is funded by a generous grant from The Howard Home Fund. Lunch will be provided at the event, therefore a reservation is required.

As a candidate in the November 2014 Massachusetts gubernatorial election, Falchuk surpassed the three percent threshold required by state law for the United Independent Party to earn official party status in the Commonwealth.

This milestone means the United Independent Party is taking its place alongside the Democratic and Republican parties in Massachusetts, and will have equal election and fundraising laws and requirements. It is actively cultivating a slate of United Independent Party candidates to run in the Commonwealth’s 2016 election.

A successful entrepreneur, having served for 14 years on the executive leadership team of Boston-based global health care company Best Doctors, Inc., Falchuk played a lead role in helping grow the company from nine employees to over 600. The company was named to Inc. Magazine’s list of Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America in 2013, 2012 and 2011.

Parking for the luncheon event at the Martin Institute will be available behind the Ames Sports Complex in The Sally Blair Ames South Lot on the Stonehill campus. For questions or to make a reservation, contact Noelle Preston at 508-565-1131 or martininstitute@stonehill.edu .
