About Brian

A lifelong Democrat, I have worked for Democratic candidates, campaigns, and organizations across Massachusetts. Since I joined my local Democratic Ward committee in Boston in 1996, I have brought together diverse Democrats to work on campaigns, run for office, and build a Democratic Party based on our shared values and principles. In my current role as Chair, and in my past role as the Affirmative Action & Outreach Officer for the Cambridge Democratic City Committee, I remain committed to ensuring that every single person in the Democratic Party has a voice, and has a seat at the table.

After being actively involved in my ward and city committees, I knew that I had the drive and energy to make a difference in the Democratic Party at the statewide level. As a member of the Democratic State Committee, I have focused on subcommittee work as a member the Affirmative Action and Outreach and Site Selection subcommittees. I have made sure to bring information and resources from the State Committee to my city committee and ward committees in Cambridge, and have brought ideas, feedback, and understanding of local needs back to the Massachusetts Democratic Party.

I am a proud FDR Democrat who believes that government can and must serve the needs of all people — ensuring that all Americans have a chance to succeed and enjoy what FDR eloquently described as the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.

In my first political experience, I worked with my mother as a volunteer on George McGovern’s presidential campaign in 1972. In the mid-1970’s, I watched my father organize professional workers into a new union at the Detroit Public Schools, where he was an engineer facing unfair labor practices and a corrupt administration. Since moving to Massachusetts in 1987, I have worked for progressive candidates, campaigns, and organizations at the local, state, and federal levels.
