Black Women Leaders Rally Support for Andrea Campbell in Roxbury

State Rep. Chynah Tyler, former Secretary of Public Safety Andrea Cabral, former State Rep. Marie St. Fleur, and Dr. Atyia Martin Join Campbell to Get Out the Vote

BOSTON – Today, several of Andrea Campbell’s prominent endorsers joined her for a Get Out the Vote launch in Roxbury to rally support for Campbell as she continues to gain momentum in the final days before the preliminary election on September 14.

“Voters have a clear choice in the final days of this election. Are we going to choose a candidate with a positive, progressive vision for how to move the city forward? Or are we going to choose someone who represents the status quo?” said Campbell. “Voters I’ve spoken to all across the city and in every neighborhood are done with the rhetoric, they want action. They want results. They also want a vision for the future – a vision that is bright and optimistic, but also realistic and with a plan to get things done. And this message is resonating. It is positive. It is inspirational. It is hopeful. It is consistent. And it is achievable.”

“Andrea has been clear in her version for this city and her commitment through her previous work. This is a woman who recognizes opportunity and she’s willing to put that work in for this City,” said Dr. Atyia Martin.

“With just a couple days until Election Day, the wind is at Andrea’s back and we are putting in the work to make sure Andrea Campbell is our next mayor,” State Representative Chynah Tyler, who joined volunteers to knock doors in her own neighborhood following the rally.

“There’s an opportunity here that we have never seen in this City before. And that is to vote for the sharpest, most committed, most passionate, greatest critical thinker I have ever met – who will dedicate herself every single day to making this City better,” said former Suffolk County Sheriff and Secretary of Public Safety Andrea Cabral.

“There is hard work to be done in this city, and Andrea has put in the work. We need Andrea Campbell in the corner office,” said former State Representative Marie St. Fleur.

Campbell’s campaign has picked up momentum in recent weeks, especially after receiving the Boston Globe’s endorsement on September 2nd. She has consistently increased her support as reflected in the two most recent polls, which show Campbell surging into a statistical tie for second with Councilor Annissa Essaibi George.

In both polls, she has passed Acting Mayor Kim Janey, leaving voters with a clear choice for the top spots in the final election between Campbell and Essaibi George. In the most recent Emerson College poll, with undecided voters allocated to the candidates they’re leaning toward, Essaibi George polls at 21%, Campbell at 20%, and Janey at 18%. Another conducted by Beacon Research has both Campbell and Essaibi-George at 19% and ahead of Janey at 15%. While Campbell’s support has increased in every public poll, Janey’s has declined.

This momentum comes after two winning debates for Campbell, where she presented her progressive vision for the City: an equitable and excellent Boston Public School system, more affordable housing, a plan to transform our City’s approach to public safety while addressing root causes of violence.Campbell will ramp up public health measures to protect our residents as we continue to fight a global pandemic, and implement a comprehensive plan to address the public health crisis at Mass & Cass.
