BOSTON – “As a lawyer and public servant, Andrea Campbell is a proven leader for protecting the people of Massachusetts. Her lived experience and her fierce drive to deliver real progress is what it will take to meet this historic moment and build on the legacy of Maura Healey. I’m thrilled to endorse Andrea for Attorney General because she will fight for MetroWest and every community across Massachusetts,” said Senate President Karen Spilka.
Senate President Spilka has led a number of efforts to decrease the barriers to accessing quality mental health care, including directing state funding towards public awareness of mental and behavioral health, as well as to increasing the mental health workforce pipeline.
Throughout her campaign, Campbell has echoed Senate President Spilka’s call for greater resources and funding for mental health. Campbell has focused her efforts specifically on increasing mental health services for youth.
“I’m grateful for Senate President Spilka’s support and remain inspired by her leadership on so many important issues – from mental health, criminal justice reform, the environment, to women’s reproductive health. I look forward to partnering with her on these issues as your next Attorney General,” said Andrea Campbell.
Campbell grew up with a childhood filled with incredible instability, but she has turned her pain into purpose and a career in public service. She has spent her legal and legislative career delivering real progress for her constituents, especially when it comes to affordable housing, community policing, and criminal justice reform.
As Attorney General, she will continue her fight by protecting consumers when prices go up, keeping our kids safe at home and school, and defending access to reproductive care across Massachusetts.
Andrea Campbell and Senate President Spilka will campaign together in Framingham on Saturday, August 27 at the Framingham Dems BBQ at the house of Framingham City Council Chair Phil Ottaviani Jr.
