Statement from City Councilor Andrea Campbell on Nomination of Mayor Walsh as Labor Secretary

BOSTON – In response to news that President-elect Joe Biden has nominated Mayor Marty Walsh as Secretary of Labor, Boston City Councilor Andrea Campbell released the following statement:

“Congratulations to Mayor Walsh on his nomination as Secretary of Labor – a fitting role for someone who has spent his entire career fighting for working people in and out of public service.

The realities of deep division in our country and city have never been more clear than they have this year – amidst a pandemic and yesterday’s domestic attack on our democracy. For Boston, there’s so much at stake in 2021 as we look to recover from this pandemic and reimagine what our city can be without persistent inequities. I know Mayor Walsh will be a partner in that work in this new role.”

About Andrea Campbell:

Andrea Campbell is running for Mayor of Boston to bring Boston together to break cycles of inequity and injustice, and to give every Bostonian a chance to succeed. As a City Councilor representing District 4, which includes large sections of Dorchester and Mattapan, as well as 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 under-serves communities of color, or one of the worst racial wealth gaps in America.

Campbell was born and raised in Boston, in Roxbury and the South End, and went to all Boston Public Schools. She is a graduate of Boston Latin School, Princeton University, and UCLA Law School.

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 represent Mattapan, Dorchester, and parts of Jamaica Plain and Roslindale on the City Council. 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.
