Boston – Former First Lady Diane Patrick Endorses Andrea Campbell for Mayor of Boston

Patrick was First Lady of Massachusetts from 2007-2014
BOSTON – Today, Diane Patrick, a lawyer, champion for public health, and the former First Lady of Massachusetts, endorsed City Councilor Andrea Campbell in her bid for Mayor of Boston.

“Andrea is a compassionate and compelling leader who is ready to lead the city of Boston at this critical moment for our Commonwealth and our country,” said Diane Patrick. “I saw first-hand Andrea’s personal and professional commitment to equity and justice when she worked in Governor Patrick’s administration. She has the courage, the skills, and the unique lived experience to fight for and build an equitable future for all Bostonians. I am proud to endorse her in this race.”

Campbell served as Deputy Legal Counsel to Governor Deval Patrick during his second term as Massachusetts Governor, overseeing the transportation and education agencies, the Commission Against Discrimination, and helping draft and review legislation for the Governor. Diane Patrick, an employment and labor attorney, is senior counsel at Ropes & Gray, and during her time as First Lady, was an outspoken advocate for mental health and for survivors of domestic violence, harnessing her own personal experience to destigmatize these issues and expand access to services.

“I am so humbled and proud to have Mrs. Patrick’s endorsement. In her own right, she is a champion for equity and justice, and she is an inspiration to me as someone who has demonstrated the importance of sharing our stories even when they’re painful,” said Councilor Campbell. “She knows that to truly confront and eradicate the inequities and systemic racism in our city, we need to elect leaders who have experienced them first-hand, and to empower people who have been most impacted. That is what our campaign is all about and why I am honored to have her endorsement.”
