LESS TALK, MORE ACTION FOR DORCHESTER & ROXBURY!
Darrin Howell has dedicated his life to helping area families overcome challenges and build stronger neighborhoods. He’ll bring a fresh, unapologetic and action-focused approach to the State House as our next Representative!
MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING
Access to safe, clean, affordable housing is critical to the health of our community. And in the face of ever-rising rent and gentrification threats, we must ensure individuals and families are not displaced or left without a place to call home.

HIGH QUALITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS
A parent of two BPS kids, Darrin knows the strengths and challenges of the Boston Public School system. We must make the investments needed to reduce class sizes, maximize time in the classroom and help kids realize their full potential.
SAFER STREETS & NEIGHBORHOODS
As a survivor of community violence and longtime advocate for reform, these issues are close to Darrin’s heart. We need real action to expand community policing and connect young people with after-school programs and jobs.

BETTER JOBS, HIGHER WAGES
Unemployment and under-employment relate directly to crime rates, substance abuse, child safety and so much more. There’s no better way to tackle these challenges than by bringing family- supporting jobs to our community.
