Letter to the Editor

I am a candidate for Democratic State Committeeman

My name is Brian Corr, and I am a candidate for Democratic State Committeeman in the Middlesex & Suffolk District. My name will be on the Democratic primary ballot on Tuesday, March 1, and I respectfully ask for your vote.

In 2012, I was selected to be an Affirmative Action Member of the Massachusetts Democratic State Committee and have served proudly, and it has been a privilege to work with great Democrats from across the Commonwealth. Now I am running to represent our district, which includes Charlestown, Chelsea, Everett, and parts of Cambridge and Boston.

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 people together to work on campaigns, run for office, and build a Democratic Party based on our shared values and principles. As the Affirmative Action & Outreach Officer for the Cambridge Democratic City Committee, I am committed to ensuring that every single person in the Democratic Party has not just a voice, but a seat at the table.

After years of being involved in the Cambridge Democrats, I knew that I had the drive and energy to make a difference at the statewide level. As a member of the Democratic State Committee, I have been an active member of the Affirmative Action & 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 his fellow 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.

With your support, I will be able to do even more to identify and support new activists and future leaders in our party as the Democratic State Committeeman for our district.

And whatever you do, please make sure to vote for the candidates of your choice on March 1: Your vote is your voice!

Brian Corr
