Marcony is the newest voice on the Everett School Committee

Unanimously appointed in January 2018 by a vote of the City Council and School Committee to serve out the vacant term of the late Robert Carreiro, Marcony has been an effective and dedicated champion for public education.

Biography

Marcony for Everett School Committee

Experienced

Marcony works as the Director of Community Engagement at the Office of the Attorney General, where he handles public safety, school bullying and consumer assistance issues. As first person to hold this position, he’s responsible for outreach and educating communities across Massachusetts on how the AG’s office can work for them – from protecting citizens from predatory lending, corrupt businesses, and seniors who may be victims of scams.

Accessible

One of Marcony’s first priorities in office was to visit each school multiple times to meet teachers, parents, and students to learn their concerns. He has been an active, vocal presence across the city. He’s only an email or phone call away to help, as many parents can attest.

Accomplishments

Devens School laptops

In a little over a year, Marcony has worked relentlessly to advocate for our children and schools.

He secured a $5,000 donation from the Cambridge Health Alliance Foundation for laptops at the Devens School so students could prepare for MCAS testing, which is now administered electronically.

Advocacy for students in housing crisis

When he heard about the homeless student population, Marcony brought in the Massachusetts Housing and Shelter Alliance and won a $30,000 grant to help homeless students and their families in crisis to cover emergency expenses for food and housing. This assistance has helped improve absenteeism, school grades and graduation rates.

Crimson Community

Marcony helped sponsor two Everett High School (EHS) graduates who are launching a mentoring program designed to “empower students to recognize their potential and giving them a network to succeed” by connecting them with members of the community.
