Carl Nilsson

Carl Nilsson was Field Director at Ed Markey for US Senate. Lives in Somerville, Massachusetts, with Sam Shusterman.




In 2006, Carl Nilsson was Campaigns Director for Neighbor to Neighbor-Mass Alliance.[1]

According to Nilsson Mass Alliance, the state-wide progressive electoral coalition, split in two recent special elections on February 7th. In Gardner, liberal Democrat Robert Rice defeated conservative Republican Jonathan Dennehy by 700 votes. In Foxboro, progressive Democrat Claire Naughton lost to Republican Ginny Coppola, widow of former Representative Michael Coppola, by 500 votes.

Mass Alliance members, including Boston Democratic Socialists of America, devoted significant fundraising, membership communication, field assistance, and direct mail resources to the Naughton campaign, but it proved too difficult to elect a progressive in such a conservative district, especially "with us having to go against the sympathy factor".
