(Editor’s Note – This press release was sent by the Committee to Elect Quentin Palfrey Attorney General)


EVERETT – Former Assistant AG and candidate for Attorney General Quentin Palfrey has been endorsed by Everett City Councilors Stephanie Martins and Vivian Nguyen. In Malden, Palfrey’s endorsers include School Committee Members Keith Bernard and Dawn Macklin, and former City Councilor Debbie Demaria. They have added their names to a list of more than 300 state, local and community leaders who have endorsed Palfrey’s grassroots campaign.


“Quentin is someone who shows up, who listens, and who acts on behalf of our community,” said Councilor Martins. “I trust that he has the skills and experience to advocate for the issues that matter as our Attorney General. Quentin will truly be the People’s Lawyer, and that’s why he has my enthusiastic endorsement in this race.”


“Quentin understands the issues that matter most to people in Everett,” said Councilor Nguyen. “On healthcare, gun violence, climate, education, civil rights, criminal legal reform and more, Quentin will be ready on day one to take action. I look forward to having a strong partner for our community with Quentin Palfrey in the Attorney General’s office.”


“This campaign has been about standing up for our values, and taking on the big challenges as the People’s Lawyer,” said Palfrey. “I’m so honored to have the support of this impressive group of local leaders, and I look forward to the chance to partner with them as Attorney General to deliver on the most pressing issues affecting the people of Everett, Malden and across the Commonwealth.”


“As a local elected official, I endorse Quentin for Attorney General because he is a policymaker and a true public servant,” said Dawn Macklin. “He understands the very real issues we are facing today, and I am very impressed with his progressive ideas for the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office. I trust that he has the skills and experience to be ready on day one to take action.”


“Quentin is dedicated to protecting the rights of the people, holding people accountable and ensuring equity and accessibility for everyone,” said Malden Democratic City Committee Chair Ari Taylor. “He is a bold leader who will be ready on day one to tackle the issues that matter.  He is a champion for education, healthcare, voting rights, and more. I am proud to support him as our next AG!”


These leaders join the Massachusetts Democratic Party, the Massachusetts Sierra Club, 350 Mass Action, Massachusetts’ leading progressive advocacy organizations, and over 300 grassroots endorsers from communities in every county in Massachusetts in their support of Palfrey’s campaign for Attorney General. Palfrey is a former Assistant Attorney General and was the first chief of the office’s healthcare division. He also served in senior roles in both the Obama and Biden Administrations, and is the founder of the Voter Protection Corps, an organization that works to combat voter suppression.
