State Rep. Liz Miranda of Roxbury announced today she's running for the 2nd Suffolk State Senate seat that Sonia Chang-Diaz will leave next year as she runs for governor.
I’m running for State Senate because my experience as a community organizer, former youth worker, non profit leader, and entrepreneur empowers me to deliver change and resources to the 2nd Suffolk. I know I can continue to deliver on health equity, economic opportunity and build a district wide agenda for community belonging. I am running to take every resident in the 2nd Suffolk to the Massachusetts Senate with me.
Neighboring State Rep. Nika Elugardo is also looking at running. And former State Sen. Dianne Wilkerson is thinking about going for the seat she once held as well.
