As Mayor of Boston, Jon Santiago will lead our city through this crisis and to a recovery rooted in equity and opportunity.
- The pandemic has laid bare our vulnerabilities — this moment is a reset opportunity for Boston and Jon will lead by listening, engaging, and bringing people together.
- As an ER physician, Jon knows how to lead teams, evaluate crisis situations, and deliver results for his patients and their families. As mayor, he will bring the same leadership approach to City Hall.
- As a state representative on Beacon Hill, he played an active role in one of the most productive and progressive legislative sessions in the state’s history. He has been a staunch advocate for organized labor as a former member of CIR/SEIU and has championed transportation equity, environmental justice, while securing critical resources to address substance use issues.
- Jon is focused on the Boston that emerges from the shadow of COVID-19. He will bring neighborhoods together to address the inequity exposed and exacerbated by the pandemic when it comes to housing, Boston Public Schools, and our economy.
