Jimmy Pereira

Mayor of Brockton , MA
Born and raised in the City of Brockton, Jimmy has dedicated his personal and professional life to the people of our city. As a father, urban & regional planner, youth advocate, homeowner, and dedicated community activist, Jimmy has a deep connection to the challenges our community is facing and a demonstrated commitment to working on behalf of all families. Growing up in the Department of Youth Services, Jimmy transformed his life after personal experience with systemic inequity. Jimmy’s personal experience has not only informed his leadership, but motivated him to engage with proven-risk youth that consistently fall through the cracks. Jimmy is running for Mayor of Brockton to continue his lifelong public service and commitment to the City of Champions. With growing income inequality, worsening health disparities, increased homelessness, gun violence, and poor educational outcomes, Jimmy is running to create opportunity and prosperity for all families.
