Candidate Spotlight: Tami Gouveia

Meet Tami Gouveia, ATMA member and candidate for State Representative, 14th Middlesex, which covers parts of the towns of Acton, Carlisle, Chelmsford and Concord.

Tami is running for State Representative because she believes we have the power to fix the problems our state faces.

Tami will bring the voice of constituents to the table so that together we can build the sustainable and vibrant future that our district and future generations deserve.

A public health leader of 15 years, Tami is committed to creating a healthier and more just Massachusetts.

“As a progressive Democrat, I have dedicated my life to serving as an advocate for social change and tackling many of our communities’ most pressing issues. I’ve negotiated with policy makers to protect our youth from the devastation of addiction, secured funding to address the opioid crisis, and conducted environmental health policy research to support the passage of bills at the state level. These opportunities have allowed me to work strategically and collectively with parents, youth, local leaders, business leaders, and everyday workers to push the needle forward, creating a more just, free, and equitable future to which we all aspire.”

Tami has spent the last 25 years fighting for equality and opportunity for all.

“The issues that legislators tackle are complex. They are issues that don’t have quick fixes or silver bullets. They are issues that require engaged listening to understand the myriad perspectives and the range of people whose lives are impacted by any decisions made. Whether it’s transportation, education, or climate change, every issue area is interconnected because we as people and communities are interconnected. As State Representative, I will be a leader who listens and a leader who will act on constituents’ concerns.”

Tami was born and raised in Lowell, Massachusetts and is the daughter of two small business owners. She now lives in Acton with her two teenage sons, Cam and Joey.
