BOSTON — City Councilor Andrea Campbell released a new video elevating her candidacy for mayor of Boston, after reports that Mayor Marty Walsh will be President-elect Biden’s nominee for Secretary of Labor. A native Bostonian, Campbell is running to bring the city together to break cycles of inequity and injustice, and to give every Bostonian a chance to succeed. Campbell launched her campaign for mayor three months ago outside her childhood home in Roxbury, on September 24th, 2020.
Campbell’s vision for Boston is driven by her life story. From growing up in a family torn apart by incarceration and loss, in public housing and at times in foster care, to ultimately losing her twin brother who died while a pre-trial detainee in the Department of Correction, and becoming the first Black woman elected Boston City Council President — Andrea’s story shows the painful inequities but also the possibilities in the City of Boston.
Campbell is running on an equity agenda with a record of leadership and vision to deliver effective and impactful solutions in public health and safety, criminal justice, housing, public education, economic development, environmental justice, and racial equity. Throughout the course of the campaign, Andrea will be releasing in-depth policy platforms around these issue-areas and more to demonstrate a path to a more equitable, inclusive Boston.
Since entering the race for mayor, Campbell has raised over $350,000.00 and received contributions from every Boston neighborhood. She has been endorsed by former Secretary of Public Safety Andrea Cabral.
