Over 50 Active Massachusetts Democrats Enthusiastically Endorse Gubernatorial Candidate Danielle Allen Ahead of Party Convention


Cambridge, MA — As Democrats from across the Commonwealth prepare to gather virtually for the 2021 MassDems Platform Convention, Danielle Allen’s campaign is unveiling a list of key Massachusetts Democrat endorsers in support of her gubernatorial bid, including Cambridge Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui; First Lady Cynthia Swan; Democratic State Committee Woman Nazda Alam; and President of the College Dems of MA, Ted Park. 

“I am honored to have the support of so many incredible active and engaged members and leaders of the Commonwealth,” gubernatorial candidate Danielle Allen said. “We look forward to building off this momentum and continuing to bring others into the fold as we work to reimagine the future of our Commonwealth.” 

“Danielle Allen speaks to a state and a country that is in need of healing,” said Doryce Smith, Democratic State Committeewoman and Delegate from Brockton. “She knows how to put in the hard work that sends others running away from controversies. She is a leader and knows how to work with others to ensure governmental needs are addressed and accomplished.”

“Danielle Allen is the leader we need in Massachusetts; she has already proven that she will show up for all of us in the Commonwealth,” said Jessica Dils, a Williamstown organizer who is also the cofounder of Greylock Together. “Here in the Berkshires, we often feel invisible and “forgotten” by state leaders; Danielle has already visited with our progressive, grassroots Indivisible and Racial Justice members to share her vision and to get to know us in person. Most importantly, she has come to listen, bringing care and empathy to our local stories and issues, and articulating ways in which her depth of experience working on policy and action in areas of justice, healthcare, education, and democracy will serve to empower and uplift each one of us in Massachusetts. Danielle Allen is my choice for Governor. Join me! It’s time for a leader who will fight for us all.”
