Running to represent you.

I'm Jeff Ballinger and I'm running to represent the citizens of Massachusetts' 3rd Congressional District.

I will bring an activist’s will and an organizer’s skills to the House Democratic Caucus.
— Jeff Ballinger
 
 
It’s unacceptable that veterans are
losing injury lawsuits against corrupt Pentagon contractors; we must use subpoena power to address this!
— Jeff Ballinger
 

Jeff grew up seeing mistreatment of workers by companies that raked in profits. He decided early on to fight for the little guy. Starting with voter registration in college, he became a national student coordinator for a boycott of an unfair clothing manufacturer.

Jeff joined the Textile Workers Union of America and assisted on the real-world "Norma Rae" campaign. He attended New York School of Law at night with a focus on international and human rights, graduating in 1983.

Jeff founded and ran the non-profit Press for Change that helped force Indonesia's strongman, Suharto,  to nearly triple the country's minimum wage, from 86 cents per day to $2.46.

Jeff knows the global nature of our economic problems at home and is ready to take on the corruption of big money in politics. Unbeholden to special interests, he will focus on the interests of regular people in the district.
