Stephen McBride for Boston City Council District 3

A Note from Stephen

Boston is my home. Not the home that I was born to, but the home that I chose. It's a city full of purpose and promise. A city that led the way in declaring that love is love. A city with unlimited potential and opportunity. 

But 2020 has brought into sharp focus a reality that many have faced for decades - that opportunity is not given equally and, as progressive as Boston may be, we still have a long way to go. And that's why I'm running for City Council for District 3. 

To be a voice for institutional change.  To listen to my neighbors, hear your concerns, and understand your needs. To be open and accessible, transparent and accountable.  To be your voice in City Hall.

I'm excited for everything that we can do for Boston, together.



Stephen and his husband, Matthew

On the Issues

Stephen believes that Boston should be a city where the chance to succeed is equal for every resident and where every voice is heard.

It won't be easy, but we're in this together.  We can lead the tides of change for Boston.

Education Policies


Supporting our schools is foundational for our future. Stephen firmly believes that every student deserves access to high-quality public education and that we must address the systemic inequalities in our educational system.
Public Health Policies

Public Health

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted healthcare inequities from disparate rates of death based on race to unequal access to the vaccine. We must address these and other public health crises including the opioid epidemic. 
Climate Justice Politices

Housing & Development

 Boston must have a comprehensive city plan to protect against over-development. As part of this, Stephen will push for policies that protect renters, enable more residents to own their own home, and increase housing permanence.
