BOSTON – Today Councilor and mayoral candidate Andrea Campbell’s campaign reported raising over $200,000 in the month of March, bringing her total raise for the first quarter of 2021 to over $625,000. After pulling in over $270,000 in January, the highest monthly total for any candidate in the race so far, and leading the field in cash on hand the last two months, Campbell is projected to have the highest quarter of any mayoral candidate. Campbell has raised nearly $940,000 since announcing her campaign in September.

Campbell’s campaign continues to gain momentum and national attention today, Campbell received the endorsement of Our Black Party, a national organization that exists to advance a political agenda that addresses the needs of Black people, founded and led by former Black elected officials across the country.

“Our Black Party is proud to endorse Andrea Campbell for mayor of Boston. In cities across the country, we need bold leaders like Andrea Campbell who will lead with equity and justice as the centerpiece of their work, not an add-on,” said Candace Hollingsworth, National Co-Chair of Our Black Party. “Andrea’s record on the Boston City Council shows great promise for how she will make sure that the city’s Black residents will be able to share in its prosperity.” 

“I continue to be humbled by the enthusiasm and energy we are seeing on the ground for my campaign,” said Councilor Campbell. “With roughly six months until the Preliminary Election, we are leading this crowded field and building a joyful and diverse coalition based on a shared vision of a more equitable Boston for all residents.”

In the last few weeks, Campbell has released 10 comprehensive policy plans on housing, transportation, environmental justice, public safety and criminal justice, education, economic recovery, restaurant recovery, public health, COVID-19 recovery and addressing the crisis at Mass & Cass to inform voters of her vision of making Boston a city that works for everyone.
