Cameron Costa

Massachusetts House, 9th Bristol District, MA

Cameron was raised in New Bedford and is a product of public higher education. He graduated from Bristol Community College and UMass Dartmouth with degrees in business and history.

In 2021, Cameron was appointed by Governor Charlie Baker to serve on the Board of Higher Education. He advocated for expanding investment in programs that increase equity, close the achievement gap, and increase student economic resources. Cameron also relies on his experiences as a Board Member of the New Bedford Site Advisory Board for the Department of Mental Health, to recognize the lack of access to mental health resources for veterans and community members. Cameron has also advocated for workers' rights and protections, which is why he was appointed to serve as a trustee for AFSCME Council 93 Local 72.

Cameron is running to fill what many see as a lack of representation in government. He has heard from residents about important community issues: traffic, environmental hazards, a lack of support for small businesses, the lack of access to clean drinking water, and much more.
