State Representative Dan Cullinane of the 12th Suffolk District has announced the hiring of his Campaign Manager.

Former John Barros for Mayor regional field organizer and Mattapan GOTV Director Brendan Joyce will join Cullinane’s re-election campaign as campaign manager. Joyce also organized in Dorchester and Roxbury in the effort to elect Marty Walsh as Mayor of Boston during last year’s general election.

“I’m thrilled to head up Dan’s re-election campaign”, said Joyce. “In his short time on Beacon Hill, Dan has already been able to rack up a strong progressive record on behalf of his constituents. From voting for cornerstone pieces of legislation like the minimum wage bill to providing basic constituent services like fixing potholes, Dan has shown the type of inclusive leadership that the 12th Suffolk District deserves. I’m more than excited to help send Dan back to Beacon Hill for his first full term”.

Brendan Joyce grew up on Cape Cod and attended Bridgewater State University. His father emigrated from Co. Galway, Ireland to Dorchester in 1957. Mike Joyce became the Chairman of the Ward 16 Democratic Committee and in 1962 helped Ted Kennedy handily defeat his first primary opponent in Dorchester’s Irish immigrant community. Joyce has been involved in political campaigns from a young age, and most recently worked as a regional field director in the Massachusetts governor race.

"I am very excited to have an experienced campaign professional in Brendan managing my re-election campaign," said State Representative Dan Cullinane. "We have a two-month sprint ahead of us. I am confident that Brendan's energy and proven work-ethic make him the right person to build upon the strong progressive organization we built last year and will lead us to victory in September."
