Andrea Campbell Raises Over $60K in Less Than 24 Hours after Walsh announced as nominee for labor secretary

Campbell’s campaign for mayor raised over $60K in just 20 hours after the announcement that Mayor Marty Walsh will be President Biden’s nominee for Labor Secretary 

BOSTON – In less than 24 hours since the announcement that Mayor Walsh would be President Biden’s nominee for labor secretary, Andrea Campbell’s campaign raised over $60,000 for her mayoral campaign, from over 200 individual contributions.

“This campaign was never about who is in the office, but about the future of Boston and the best person to lead us forward to confront and eradicate inequities and ensure all Bostonians have the opportunities to succeed,” said Campbell. “I’m humbled by the overwhelming support our campaign has received and the momentum we are building.”

Last night, Campbell released a new video elevating her candidacy for mayor of Boston. 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.

About Andrea:

Andrea Campbell is running for Mayor to bring Boston together to break cycles of inequity and injustice, and to give every Bostonian a chance to succeed.

As a City Councilor representing District 4, which includes large sections of Dorchester and Mattapan, as well as pieces of Jamaica Plain and Roslindale, Campbell has focused on closing generational inequities in our City, whether in a criminal justice system that is unjust, a school system that under-serves communities of color, or one of the worst racial wealth gaps in America.

Campbell served as Deputy Legal Counsel in Governor Deval Patrick’s administration, working to create more equitable systems and deliver progressive change to communities across the Commonwealth. In 2015, Campbell defeated a 32-year incumbent to represent Mattapan, Dorchester, and parts of Jamaica Plain and Roslindale on the City Council. 

Since then, Campbell has been a leader for equity, justice, and opportunity for all in Boston. As the first Black woman to serve as Boston City Council President, she championed an agenda that put racial equity at the top of Boston’s priority list. For years, she’s led the fight to reform our police and criminal legal systems and pushed our City and school leaders to act urgently to provide a quality public education to every student.
