State Representative Chynah Tyler Endorses Andrea Campbell for Mayor

PRESS RELEASE
Tyler: “Andrea represents a new generation of leadership and will continue to lead on issues of access, equity, and the betterment of all Bostonians”

BOSTON – This morning at an event in Roxbury, State Representative Chynah Tyler endorsed Andrea Campbell for Mayor of Boston. Representative Tyler, a Roxbury native, represents the 7th Suffolk District which includes parts of Roxbury, Fenway, and the South End, and is Chair of the Commonwealth’s Black and Latino Legislative Caucus.

“Today, I am proud to endorse Andrea Campbell as the next mayor of Boston because she represents a new generation of leadership and will continue to lead on issues of access, equity, and the betterment of all Bostonians,” said Rep. Tyler. “For years, as a district city councilor and council president, Andrea has led on issues that face everyday Bostonians and their families from across the city. Whether it was establishing pathways for workforce development, or ensuring public safety measures for our neighborhoods, Andrea has gone above and beyond for her constituents — refusing to simply maintain the status quo.”

Representative Tyler was first elected in 2016; in 2019, she became chair of the Boston delegation, which includes elected officials representing every neighborhood in Boston, and in January, 2021 was elected chair of the Black and Latino Caucus. Tyler also serves as Vice-Chair of the Legislature’s Committee on Public Health and Joint Committee on the Judiciary. Rep Tyler and Councilor Campbell have worked together to pass historic legislation including the state’s sweeping police reform bill in 2020.

“As a parent raising a family in Boston, Andrea recognizes the need for our city to be a place where all families and residents can prosper. As a Boston Public Schools graduate and a Bostonian who grew up in Roxbury and the South End and is now raising her family in Mattapan, I know that Andrea will be the mayor that connects the people — not special interests — to the issues facing our city, and will bring us all together to solve them,” said Tyler. “Andrea is a leader who works with others to get things done. Throughout her tenure in office I have enjoyed collaborating with her to solve the big challenges facing our city, and I look forward to working with her as mayor to make our city the best Boston we can be.”

“Chynah is a fierce and fearless champion for addressing structural inequities, including within our housing, public schools, policing and criminal legal systems, and has been a champion for Boston families throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. I am honored to have her support,” said Councilor Campbell. “As daughters of Roxbury and sisters in the fight for equity, we share the same values and the same priorities to ensure everyone who lives in Boston has the opportunities they need to be successful.”

Tyler’s endorsement is the second endorsement Campbell has received from a member of the Boston Delegation; she has also been endorsed by Representative Liz Malia of Jamaica Plain.

Campbell has also been endorsed by leaders and organizations who have a proven track record of fighting for equity and justice, including:

Massachusetts Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) PAC

Former First Lady Diane Patrick

Former Sheriff and Secretary of Public Safety Andrea Cabral

State Representative Liz Malia

About Andrea Campbell:

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 Boston City Councilor representing District 4, which includes large sections of Dorchester and Mattapan and 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 fails too many students, particularly in 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 become the first woman and second-ever District 4 City Councilor.

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.

Campbell launched her campaign for mayor on September 24th, 2020 outside her childhood home in Roxbury.
