Boston Globe Endorses Andrea Campbell for Mayor of Boston

“For Bostonians who are done waiting for the city to reach its potential, Andrea Campbell is the right mayor for the moment.”

BOSTON – Today, the Boston Globe Editorial Board endorsed City Councilor Andrea Campbell for Mayor of Boston, with twelve days until the Preliminary Election on September 14th.

In their endorsement, the Globe says Campbell “radiates a sense of urgency, a palpable hunger to confront Boston’s hardest, most politically fraught challenges — its uneven schools and a law enforcement system that has lost the trust of too many residents. That drive, paired with her nuanced thinking about what can make the city more vibrant and equitable, is what distinguishes her from her opponents in this year’s mayoral election — and why the Globe editorial board enthusiastically endorses her candidacy in the Sept. 14 preliminary election.”

This endorsement is a reflection of the strength of Campbell’s candidacy and the momentum she is seeing in the final days, along with validating how well-positioned she is to make it into the final and ultimately, to be elected in November. Campbell has consistently outperformed expectations and has emerged as a frontrunner in this race, first by exercising the courage to challenge Mayor Walsh last September, maintaining a lead in fundraising, being the only candidate who has consistently grown in public polls, and earning key community and national endorsements.

“I am humbled and honored to earn the Boston Globe’s endorsement in this race,” said Councilor Campbell. “Boston is facing a critical moment where we need leadership from someone who has not only lived the very inequities we’re seeing, which have been exacerbated by this pandemic, but will also do the hard work to eradicate them so that every Bostonian has the same opportunities I had growing up in Boston. That is how I have led and will continue to lead, bringing our communities together to do the hard work. I look forward to earning the votes of Bostonians across our city.”

This endorsement comes on the heels of considerable momentum in the last few days for Campbell’s campaign. Earlier today she earned the endorsement of Elect Black Women PAC, a national organization working to increase representation of Black women in municipal and statewide executive offices. Campbell has seen growth in recent public polls, released a new TV ad, and earned key support from leaders and organizations across our City. Campbell is also endorsed by former First Lady Diane Patrick, former Suffolk County Sheriff and Secretary of Public Safety Andrea Cabral, Cambridge Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui, Governor’s Councilor Eileen Duff, State Representative and Chair of the Black and Latino Legislative Caucus Chynah Tyler, State Representative Liz Malia, former State Representatives Marie St. Fleur and Marty Walz, Bill Walczak, Diana Hwang, Dr. Atyia Martin, and John Borders IV. Campbell has also been endorsed by Our Black Party, a national organization that exists to advance a political agenda that addresses the needs of Black people, and the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Organization for Women (Mass NOW).
