BROOKLINE, MA – On July 1, Dr. Natalia Linos released a detailed COVID-19 Response and Recovery Plan. Linos’ 25-page plan is the most comprehensive and specific plan proposed by any candidate running in the Massachusetts 4th District Democratic primary to date.
“My plan presents important building blocks to protect the most vulnerable, reopen safely with equity as a guiding principle, recover from the shock to our economy, and rebuild our society in line with our values while protecting our planet,” Linos said.
As a social epidemiologist, Linos brings unparalleled public health expertise to this race and is running because this pandemic has laid bare the need for a Congresswoman who will be a voice for science and equity.
“This pandemic and its far-reaching fallout will be the most pressing challenge to face the next Representative from the 4th District, and I hope the thorough nature of this plan demonstrates why my expertise is needed in Congress.”
