Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley Endorses Maura Healey for Massachusetts Governor

Boston, July 11 - Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley today endorsed Attorney General Maura Healey to be the next Governor of Massachusetts.

“Maura Healey is a passionate and determined advocate for families and communities across Massachusetts,” said Congresswoman Pressley. “In the time we’ve known one another, I’m proud to have worked together to protect students from predatory for-profit colleges, hold pharmaceutical companies accountable, strengthen support for victims of crime, and more. In a moment when so much is on the line - from abortion access and reproductive freedom to economic opportunity and the accelerating impacts of climate change - we need leadership in the corner office on Beacon Hill committed to making real, positive change for everyone in Massachusetts. I’m proud to endorse Maura for Governor, and I look forward to joining her in the work ahead.”   

“Congresswoman Pressley is a powerful and inspiring advocate and leader for justice and equity who centers her work on lifting the voices and experiences of the people she serves,” said Attorney General Healey. “We’ve stood by each other throughout our careers, and I’m deeply honored to receive her endorsement in our campaign for Governor today. I look forward to partnering together to advance policies that will make life better for all Massachusetts residents.”

Congresswoman Pressley made history in 2018 when she became the first woman of color elected to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. Congress, representing constituents in Boston, Somerville, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Randolph, and Milton. During her time in office, Congresswoman Pressley has introduced landmark legislation to combat the crisis of childhood trauma, codify the right to abortion and comprehensive reproductive care, abolish the federal death penalty, fix our broken clemency system, cancel student debt, and more. She serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the Committee on Government Oversight and Reform, and she has led on issues ranging from expanding transit justice and ensuring an equitable public health response to COVID-19 to ending discriminatory credit practices and keeping families safely housed.
