My Endorsed Candidates 
This year I'm proud to support many incredible candidates. They have all received my endorsement, because they are empathetic, thoughtful, and passionate leaders, they will make committed public servants.
Attorney General Maura Healey - for Governor 

I met first met Attorney General Healey when I was a Legal Services attorney in Boston, she was an intrepid lawyer in the Attorney General's Office. Attorney General Healey has a comprehensive understanding of how State Government works, a plethora of professional experience, and is a thoughtful and empathetic leader. She is best positioned to address the numerous issues our Commonwealth faces, from transit to housing, and criminal justice. I proudly support her for Governor.

Former Boston City Councilor Andrea Campbell - Attorney General

In my time on the Boston City Council, Andrea was a mentor to me, she carried herself as a thoughtful and pragmatic leader. I am proud to support her in this race. 

Andrea grew up in Roxbury with a childhood filled with incredible instability. She lost both her biological parents and twin brother at a young age. Yet, she turned that pain into purpose and a career in public service. 

As a lawyer, she has represented children for free and pushed for regional and racial equity working as legal counsel in Governor Deval Patrick’s Administration. Andrea knows what it takes to deliver real progress for constituents. She has served on the Boston City Council and as Boston City Council President, sponsoring and passing legislation to create more affordable housing and increase transparency and accountability in public safety agencies.

As Attorney General, she will continue her fight by protecting consumers when prices go up, keeping our kids safe at home and school, and defending our civil rights and access to reproductive care across Massachusetts. I know Andrea will be an AG who shows up, listens to our community, and does everything she can to protect and advocate for the people of Massachusetts.

Andrea’s people-powered campaign has earned the support of Attorney General Maura Healey, former AGs Frank Bellotti, Martha Coakley, Scott Harshbarger, and Jim Shannon,  more than 100 local, statewide and congressional elected officials, Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts, SEIU State Council representing more than 115,000 service workers, and so many more.

State Senator Diana DiZoglio - Auditor 

It's hard to sell anyone on the importance of the auditor’s office. Ask most people on the street they would probably tell you they have no idea what an auditor is or what an auditor does.  The auditor is the people’s watchful eye on spending, waste. She is also a check on government officials and agencies. 
The perspective of the auditor matters.  

This is informed by lived and professional experience.  Diana has both.  Diana fought to be where she is today.  She is a working- class girl made good and is now a state Senator.  From waitressing tables to running statewide she is doing what few expected of her.  To be honest that’s why I want her to be the auditor.  She’s more like the average person in Massachusetts. That same person that wonders do the big wigs  on Beacon Hill really understand the everyday struggle of working families. That person, like many of us, wonders why the government, with all its billions still can't provide a decent education, housing, and health care for all of us. 

She is the working people’s candidate as almost every union or organized labor organization has chosen her to hold the government accountable. Diana is not only a people’s person, she is the people’s auditor. Diana is worthy of your consideration and I hope you vote for her on September 6, 2022.

District Attorney Kevin Hayden - Suffolk County District Attorney

I am endorsing Kevin Hayden, public servant, over the politician. The bottom line: I have seen his work. He is as dedicated a public servant as I have met, and I’ve seen him demonstrate it on multiple occasions.

As soon as he was appointed, Hayden immediately got to work. I began to get regular updates about shootings and acts of violence in my district, which includes three of the four cities that make up Suffolk County. Like Rachael Rollins, our former district attorney, he was forthcoming, upfront and direct with his information. He made himself a resource to my office. I assumed correctly that on certain policies he and I would disagree, but he has listened, showed me that he could change his mind, and was willing to be creative and constructive about the District Attorney’s role.

Rashaan has a wealth of professional experience, served as an ADA for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s  Office, he worked in the DA’s Safe Neighborhood Initiative and Senior Trial Units, prosecuting drug, gang, and homicide cases.  Recognizing the lived experience of victims, he worked closely and compassionately with victims and survivors of violent crime, while finding ways to identify less punitive and more restorative and transformative means of dealing with individuals struggling with substance use and mental health disorders. 

Please join me in supporting him alongside, Senator Ed Markey, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, Former Congressman Joe Kennedy III, and State Senator Su Moran.
