Dorchester’s Taushawn Tinsley Running for Boston City Council At-Large

Now that we're done with the midterm elections, at-large Boston City Council candidates are announcing their intentions, and Dorchester resident Taushawn Tinsley is throwing his hat into the ring. “I live the issues, that fill the conversation in Boston. I feel them close with my family and in my work and as a life-long Bostonian, I know Boston can work towards inclusion for everyone,” said Tinsley via press release. Tinsley, 25, is a Boston Public Schools teacher, worked as a regional planner in the Mayor's Office of Emergency Management, and previously interned for former Boston City Councilor Charles Yancey and former state Rep. Gloria Fox. He stressed his passion for education, as he has been a mentor for the Boston Debate League, Upward Bound and taught public policy and civic engagement at the American Legion Boys & Girls State program.
