Lyons May Face Challenge in 2018
ANDOVER — A Boston legal aid attorney has said she is “seriously considering” a run against Republican state Rep. Jim Lyons of Andover.
Tram T. Nguyen, 31, of Andover has never held elected office, but said she became interested in politics through the advocacy work she’s been doing in the city for the last four years. Nguyen works as an attorney for Greater Boston Legal Services, a nonprofit that provides free legal assistance and representation to low-income families to help them secure basic needs like housing and job protection.
“I believe my work ethic, passion and commitment to public service has been clear through my experience,” said Nguyen, a Democrat. “This is not something that I just decided to do now … this is my commitment to public service that started right after college, and even during college when I did a lot of volunteer work, so I’m hoping that will resonate with the people.”
