Congratulations Andrea Campbell!

The Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus would like to congratulate Andrea Campbell on her victory in Tuesday’s preliminary Boston City Council election.  Campbell toppled longtime Boston City Councilor Charles Yancey in the fight to represent the people of District 4, which includes parts of Mattapan, Roslindale, Jamaica Plain and Dorchester.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Campbell received 1,982 votes compared to Yancey’s 1,159.  According to unofficial results from Boston’s Election Department, 3,422 votes were cast in total.  The other candidates on Tuesday’s District 4 ballot finished far behind both Campbell and Yancey, and as a result, are now out of the race completely.  The municipal election, which is set to take place this November 3rd, will ultimately determine whether Campbell or Yancey will represent the people of District 4 on the Boston City Council.
The Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus is proud to have supported Campbell in the preliminary election this past Tuesday and will continue to support her fight to represent District 4 in the municipal election this November 3rd.  Stay tuned for additional phone banking and volunteer opportunities to support Andrea Campbell in her path to victory this November!
