Meet Nichole

Candidate for State Representative of the 35th Middlesex in Medford and Malden

Nichole is running because our state legislature has failed to address the urgent challenges that so many in our community are facing everyday. As a mother of three young children, organizer, and community advocate who knows what it’s like to struggle and live paycheck to paycheck, she knows too many families struggle daily merely to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. She has lived through many challenges in her life and not only survived them, but has thrived despite them.

Nichole has served her community by focusing on her non-profit administration and consulting work, and volunteering in various community roles. She brings tested experience to the table to build a better future for all our residents.

And So Much More!

Nichole is known as the person to go to in order to get things done, and that’s what she’s going to Beacon Hill to do!

“The Massachusetts House of Representatives has one of the largest Democratic supermajorities in the country and has failed to pass bold, progressive policies to combat climate change, address our affordable housing crisis, ensure health care access for all, and protect the rights of our immigrant communities. A more active, inclusive outreach is needed to find solutions for the challenges our community faces. Only by bringing in more voices will our system of laws address the needs of all equally. Together, we will lead.” - Nichole Mossalam
