MA-3 Candidate Rick Green released the following statement following the results of the Democratic Primary:

"The primary that seemed to never begin now looks as if it will never end.

We hope this situation is resolved quickly. If it devolves into a power struggle between two political dynasties, the victim will inevitably be the will of the people.

Our campaign will continue talking about the issues most important to you: empowering economic opportunity, fixing roads and bridges and addressing the opioid epidemic, as we have done for the last year."


Rick Green is the Co-Founder and CEO of 1A Auto, one of the country’s largest online auto parts companies. Rick and his brother Mike founded 1A to help people repair their own cars. The company succeeded due to one crucial innovation: 1A empowers their customers with a comprehensive series of practical how-to videos, free on their website.

Rick is a graduate of North Middlesex High School in Townsend, MA. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Cornell University, where he played wide receiver on the varsity football team. After college, Rick went to work in the aerospace industry, quickly finding his way to the most prestigious employer in that field, NASA. 

Today, Rick lives in Pepperell with his wife Maggie and their children Finlay (8), Tessa (6), and Gifford (4). He is a Cub Scout Den Leader and a soccer coach. The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance, the state’s most influential fiscal and good governance watchdog organization, recently honored Rick for his service. He founded the group and served as its board chair until earlier this year.
