Andrea Campbell says Boston primed for change

FOR ANDREA CAMPBELL, action is what distinguishes her platform and ideas from Mayor Marty Walsh.

Campbell, a black District 4 city councilor, announced her run for the city’s top office on September 24. The 38-year-old Mattapan resident believes that the country and city are “in a unique moment” where people are seeking more than just a dialogue about race and systemic inequities.

“People are of course emailing, marching in the streets, demanding real change. And I think Boston needs new leadership that not only understands what they’re talking about — but has lived them,” she said on this week’s Codcast. “I’m running for mayor to be that leader.”
