BOSTON, MA – Greek-American Dr. Natalia Linos is running for the Democratic nomination for Congress in Massachusetts’ 4th District. Among her many supporters, Ambassador Nicholas Burns, former U.S. Under Secretary of State, Ambassador to NATO, and Ambassador to Greece, endorsed Dr. Linos.
According to her campaign website, Amb. Burns said, “From my decades-long experience in Washington, I’ve seen what it takes to run for Congress and to serve successfully. Natalia has the experience and the temperament needed to drive progress. We have too few members of Congress who understand science. She’s data-driven and a true expert on the key subject of our time, epidemiology. She’s ready to serve the Fourth District — the District where I grew up — and in Washington, and I am proud to support her.”
Amb. Burns served as Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs from 2005-2008, U.S. Ambassador to NATO from 2001-2005, and U.S. Ambassador to Greece from 1997-2001.
