Today, Gerly Adrien released a video to announce her candidacy for the 2021 Everett Mayoral election. As a long-time Everett Resident, small business owner, and At-Large City Councilor, Adrien has spent years fighting for Everett residents, and is running a grassroots powered campaign to bring new leadership to Everett’s executive office. 

“Everett residents have been fighting for change from our local government before the pandemic began,” said Gerly Adrien. “In this moment of crisis, it’s time to follow their lead and elect bold leadership to reimagine city hall for a better Everett.”

In November 2019, Gerly Adrien was elected as the first Black, Haitian-American female City Councilor At-Large of Everett, landing in the number one spot, beating out two incumbents. Since then, Adrien has fought, introduced, and pushed for policies that help all individuals and families have access to the resources they need to have a better life. As Mayor, she will continue the fight to improve education, economic development and quality of life for the people of Everett. 

“Over the past few years, I have been honored to work in partnership with the community and residents to envision a city that provides wealth building opportunities for everyone,” said Adrien. “Together, we can provide affordable housing and pathways to homeownership, spur economic growth through workforce development and supporting our local businesses, and create a City Hall that represents all of us, by building public trust and improving transparency in local government.” 

“I am ready to take on the challenge of changing the status quo and meet this moment for change,” said Gerly Adrien.

Gerly Adrien will be hosting a series of community events throughout this month to engage with Everett residents. 

Adrien will be available to engage with the media at her campaign launch rally on Sunday, May 2nd at Rivergreen Park, 1 Rivergreen Drive, Everett, MA 02149 at 4PM. Please RSVP by emailing
