About Andrea J. Campbell

My name is Andrea J. Campbell and I am the Boston City Councilor for District 4, which includes the neighborhoods of

Dorchester and Mattapan, and parts of Roslindale and Jamaica Plain. Born and raised in Boston, I was educated in all Boston public schools including Boston Latin School. After graduating from Latin School, I went off to Princeton University and later UCLA Law School. Equipped with the knowledge and skills acquired from these institutions, I returned to Boston and began my law career at a non-profit providing free representation to students and their parents in education matters, including school discipline and special needs cases.

Before embarking on a run for Boston City Council, I served as deputy legal counsel for Governor Deval Patrick. In these positions and others, I worked on legal and policy issues including education, school-to-prison pipeline, and immigration matters affecting our children in some of the poorest communities in Boston, and with non-profits on a pro-bono basis to assist them in obtaining their 501(c)(3) status.

Ultimately, the motivating force that drove me to run for City Council was my twin brother Andre. Andre died four years ago while a pre-trial detainee in the custody of the Department of Correction after not receiving the medical care he needed. He was 29 years old. I think often about Andre and how different our lives turned out. What did I have that ensured I would have a chance at success and Andre not? I had great schools, good mentors, effective teachers, quality after-school and summer jobs, a strong church community, and opportunities that far too few of my peers, including my twin, are afforded. I want every resident of District 4 to have access to the same resources and opportunities I had growing up in Boston. I want our youth to have those same opportunities including a great education, training and local job opportunities.
