June 2, 2022 — Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (6th District) endorsed Tanisha Sullivan in her campaign for Massachusetts Secretary of State.
“The Secretary of the Commonwealth is one of the most important roles when it comes to promoting our democracy. It’s a role where the status quo isn’t good enough for protecting and expanding access to the ballot box. That’s why I’m supporting Tanisha Sullivan to be our next Secretary of the Commonwealth,” said Rep. Moulton.
“Tanisha’s commitment to service and her leadership in the fight for racial, economic, and social justice have prepared her to usher in the next generation of democratic participation in Massachusetts,” added Rep. Moulton. “We must modernize the office of the Secretary of Commonwealth and I know Tanisha can help deliver the 21st century democracy we need today.”
Today’s announcement builds on a growing wave of endorsements for Sullivan’s campaign, including elected leaders across the state, labor unions, progressive organizations, and national groups. So far, Sullivan has also been endorsed by more than two dozen elected officials in Boston, Springfield, and Holyoke, as well as Collective PAC, UNITE HERE Local 26, Progressive Massachusetts, and national democracy advocate and former Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Danielle Allen.

A Brockton native, she’s running for Massachusetts Secretary of State because it’s time to realize the full potential of this office in the fight to protect voting rights, increase government transparency and accessibility, engage the electorate, and build a stronger, more vibrant democracy for all.
