Meet Becky

For Becky, job number one is being mom to 8-year-old Madeleine and 5-year-old Jack. If you see someone organizing the Halloween party for Madeleine’s class, that’s Becky.

Becky is an At Large member of the Newton City Council, representing residents of one of the district’s largest cities, with a particular focus on improving school building facilities, addressing the city’s infrastructure and transportation challenges, and supporting local efforts to combat the climate change crisis.

Becky decided to run for the City Council just a few days after Donald Trump was elected. She saw his divisive and hateful campaign. There wasn’t a chance she was going to sit out an opportunity to show her kids how to pull a community together rather than push it apart.

Before joining the Council, Becky served as an Assistant District Attorney for Middlesex County and an Associate at the law firm of Goodwin Procter. She received her undergraduate degree in economics at Cornell University and earned a J.D. and M.B.A. from Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School.

Becky, her husband Ben, and their two kids live in Newton.

Why I'm Running

I am running for Congress with the fierce urgency of a mom that is fed up by what is going on in this country and determined to make a change.

The NRA is threatening our kids’ safety at school. Our planet is in peril. Drug companies are charging thousands of dollars for prescription drugs that people like my mom need to stay alive. And Donald Trump is tearing up Obamacare and going after Planned Parenthood. And as the mom of two young kids, I can’t accept that. If there was ever a time to step up and fight, it’s now.

Out of 435 members of Congress, only 25 are mothers of school-aged children. I believe that if we had 100 (or 250!) moms of young kids in Congress, it would change the conversation in Washington completely.
