Amb. Nicholas Burns Endorses Dr. Natalia Linos for Congress

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.

Dr. Linos is a three-time Harvard graduate, an epidemiologist, experienced public servant, and a first-generation Greek American. She is the Executive Director of the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard and serves on the Poor People’s Campaign COVID-19 Health Justice Advisory Committee. From the very beginning of the global pandemic, she has been advocating for a government response that is centered on science and equity. 

Dr. Linos lives in Brookline village with her husband, Paul, and their three children. At home, she spends time reading to her kids about space and animals, playing math games, singing Greek songs from her childhood, and trying to survive yet another day of this new life that COVID-19 has sprung on all of us.
