Boston City Council President Andrea Campbell
Andrea Campbell is the President of City Council and the City Councilor for District 4 in Boston. She serves the neighborhoods of Mattapan, Dorchester, and small parts of Roslindale and Jamaica Plain. Campbell is also a Boston Latin School alumna. She went on to continue her education at Princeton University for her undergraduate degree and UCLA Law School for her law degree. After law school, she returned to Boston to work at a nonprofit organization in Roxbury. Campbell would provide free legal services to students and families on education. Before running for City Council, she served as deputy legal counsel for Governor Deval Patrick. As a Councilor, Campbell was determined, ambitious, and responsive leader. She began her first term by expanding the Committee on Public Safety to include Criminal Justice in order to bring important conversations around re-entry services for returning citizens and the school-to-prison pipeline to the Council. As President of City Council, Campbell will work hard to ensure that the Council commits to tackling issues and has the resources to do so. Campbell lives in Mattapan with her husband, Matthew, and her son, Alexander.
