LIZ MIRANDA, CANDIDATE FOR 5TH SUFFOLK STATE REP, RECEIVES ENDORSEMENTS FROM BOSTON CITY COUNCIL PRESIDENT ANDREA CAMPBELL, SEVERAL OTHER ELECTED OFFICIALS

BOSTON, MA, 7 AUGUST 2018 – Liz Miranda, candidate for the 5th Suffolk District Massachusetts State Representative, recently received several high-profile endorsements, including Boston City Council President Andrea Campbell, former 5th Suffolk State Representative Marie St. Fleur, and current 7th Suffolk State Representative Chynah Tyler. These endorsements ride on the tails of several organizational endorsements, including the Mass Women’s Political Caucus.

Current Boston City Council President Andrea Campbell stated of Miranda: "For years, I have known Liz to be a passionate, hardworking advocate for her community. Liz has a vision and plans to make Dorchester and Roxbury safer, healthier, and to increase opportunity for the residents in the neighborhood she grew up in. I am proud to endorse Liz Miranda to be the next State Representative of the 5th Suffolk District of Massachusetts." On the City Council, Campbell represents District 4, which includes much of the 5th Suffolk district in Dorchester.

Former 5th Suffolk district State Representative Marie St. Fleur spoke glowing praise of Miranda, saying: “I've known Liz since her days as a young 13-year-old community organizer in the Nubian Roots Youth Committee of the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative. I've seen her activism to improve community centers, schools, and working to address environmental injustices faced by residents of the Dudley Triangle. She was there at neighborhood cleanups, meetings, and reclaiming our playgrounds. And she is still there.

We were proud of her when she went off to Wellesley College as a first generation college student and returned to the community with new skills and even stronger commitment to enhancing the quality of life for all. She dived right back in working on issues of public safety and economic development.

In Liz we have a proven leader with strong negotiation, advocacy, and communication skills to push for our district on Beacon Hill. She is deeply committed to all of the neighborhoods she will represent.”

7th Suffolk State Representative Chynah Tyler has also offered her support to the Liz Miranda campaign, stating, “Liz Miranda is a community champion with a shared vision towards creating a safer, healthier, and more vibrant Roxbury and Dorchester. Liz has the capacity to lead and her continued advocacy will help our neighborhoods on Beacon Hill. I am endorsing Liz Miranda because I know she will continue her commitment to fostering change as the next State Representative of the 5th Suffolk District.” Rep Tyler is currently the only black woman serving in the 165-member House of Representatives.
