Linda Rosa served on the School Committee, was elected to the City Council, the first woman elected to an At-Large seat, and was Acting Mayor. “When I was Vice-President of the City Council, John Festa was the Council President and, when he got married, he went on his honeymoon and the late Mayor George Colella went to Florida for his vacation, so I was appointed Acting Mayor!”
After serving in politics, Rosa worked for Senate President Robert Travaglini, and then Senate President Therese Murray until her retirement.
After retirement, she went to work for Maura Doyle, Clerk of the Supreme Judicial Court as an Outreach Coordinator.
Although retired, Linda feels she’s ready to put her experience on the City Council.
Rosa is married to George Rosa and has one son.
