State Rep. Chynah Tyler Endorses Andrea Campbell for Mayor

Wednesday morning at an event in Roxbury, State Rep. Chynah Tyler endorsed Andrea Campbell for Mayor of Boston.
Representative Tyler, a Roxbury native, represents the 7th Suffolk District which includes parts of Roxbury, Fenway, and the South End, and is Chair of the Commonwealth’s Black and Latino Legislative Caucus.
“Today, I am proud to endorse Andrea Campbell as the next mayor of Boston because she represents a new generation of leadership and will continue to lead on issues of access, equity, and the betterment of all Bostonians,” said Rep. Tyler. “For years, as a district city councilor and council president, Andrea has led on issues that face everyday Bostonians and their families from across the city. Whether it was establishing pathways for workforce development, or ensuring public safety measures for our neighborhoods, Andrea has gone above and beyond for her constituents — refusing to simply maintain the status quo.”
Rep. Tyler was first elected in 2016; in 2019, she became chair of the Boston delegation, which includes elected officials representing every neighborhood in Boston, and in January, 2021 was elected chair of the Black and Latino Caucus. Tyler also serves as Vice-Chair of the Legislature’s Committee on Public Health and Joint Committee on the Judiciary. Rep Tyler and Councilor Campbell have worked together to pass historic legislation including the state’s sweeping police reform bill in 2020.
“As a parent raising a family in Boston, Andrea recognizes the need for our city to be a place where all families and residents can prosper. As a Boston Public Schools graduate and a Bostonian who grew up in Roxbury and the South End and is now raising her family in Mattapan, I know that Andrea will be the mayor that connects the people — not special interests — to the issues facing our city, and will bring us all together to solve them,” said Tyler. “Andrea is a leader who works with others to get things done. Throughout her tenure in office I have enjoyed collaborating with her to solve the big challenges facing our city, and I look forward to working with her as mayor to make our city the best Boston we can be.”
Said Campbell, “Chynah is a fierce and fearless champion for addressing structural inequities, including within our housing, public schools, policing and criminal legal systems, and has been a champion for Boston families throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. I am honored to have her support. As daughters of Roxbury and sisters in the fight for equity, we share the same values and the same priorities to ensure everyone who lives in Boston has the opportunities they need to be successful.”
Tyler’s endorsement is the second endorsement Campbell has received from a member of the Boston Delegation; she has also been endorsed by Representative Liz Malia of Jamaica Plain.
