Dan Cullinane

Boston, MA – In the special election to succeed State Senator Linda Dorcena Forry as the 12th Suffolk State Representative, Dan Cullinane has earned the endorsement of the Massachusetts Teachers Association (MTA).

“Dan Cullinane is a great candidate for state representative. He believes all students have a right to an excellent education and will advocate for adequate funding for our public schools, colleges and universities,” said MTA President Paul Toner. “MTA members strongly recommend Dan Cullinane for the Massachusetts House of Representatives.”

Cullinane expressed his gratitude for the endorsement, “I am honored to have earned the support of the hardworking men and women of the Massachusetts Teachers Association. I am proud that these educators who each and every day teach and prepare the leaders of tomorrow are standing with me in this campaign.”  Cullinane continued, “I firmly believe that that no child’s future - in Massachusetts - in the 21st Century - should be limited by where they are born, what neighborhood they live in, or how much money their family may have. I look forward to fighting for our children’s future as State Representative.” 

The Massachusetts Teachers Association represents 110,000 members in more than 400 local associations throughout Massachusetts -- the vast majority of educators, administrators and education support professionals in public education, pre-kindergarten through higher education.

Dan Cullinane served as Linda Dorcena Forry’s Field Director on her successful State Senate campaign. Prior to that, Cullinane worked as a Fundraising Manager at Action for Boston Community Development, Inc. (ABCD), Boston’s largest anti-poverty agency, where he also served on the Board of Directors from 2009-2012. He has worked as Director of Constituent Services for State Representative Martin J. Walsh and as Communications Director for former Boston City Councilor Maureen Feeney.
