Nicaela Chinnaswamy has announced her write-in campaign for Republican State Committee to represent the Second Suffolk district, including the neighborhoods of Mission Hill, Jamaica Plain, Roxbury, Mattapan, Dorchester, Hyde Park, Roslindale, and the South End.
Nicaela Chinnaswamy, 27, is a Republican activist and homeowner living in Mission Hill. A graduate of Boston College, she is currently working at a Roxbury-based nonprofit dedicated to developing small businesses across the country. Nicaela has staffed and volunteered for Republican campaigns at all levels in Massachusetts. Most recently, she was recognized by the Mass Young Republicans for her outstanding volunteer efforts for Boston City Council candidate Jennifer Nassour.
“Through my involvement with local campaigns, I looked to engage ward committees and found that zero ward committees in this district were active,” Nicaela Chinnaswamy explains. “This makes it extremely difficult to mobilize our voters against liberal Democratic candidates. I decided to run because I view this lack of organization as a failure on the part of our existing state committee representatives.”
“I have the experience and the energy to help grow our grassroots network across the Commonwealth, beginning in my own district and other urban areas,” says Chinnaswamy. “I will fight for Republican candidates at all levels. And I will oppose any policy – local, state, or federal – that would further burden the taxpayers in Boston.”
Chinnaswamy also plans to engage the next generation of Republicans through Boston’s many universities and young professional networks.
“There is no young person in the Second Suffolk district more committed to growing the Republican Party than Niceala,” says Jennifer Nassour, former MassGOP chair who advanced to the runoff election for Boston City Council District 8 in November. “What we need now more than ever is someone with the energy and passion to grow the grassroots network that will get our candidates elected.”
The election for Republican State Committeewoman is held on March 3, 2020, the same date as the presidential primary election. Only voters who pull a Republican primary ballot will be able to cast a vote for Republican State Committeewoman. There are no candidates listed for this position, as none successfully submitted the required signatures in November 2019. To cast a vote for Nicaela Chinnaswamy, voters may write in her name or contact Nicaela at [email protected] or 508-873-1940 for a ballot sticker.
