Marcony is the first Brazilian-American elected to the Everett School Committee. He 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.
Previously, Marcony was an adjunct professor at Northeastern University, learning an appreciation and compassion for students at all learning levels. He is committed to supporting our teachers and administrators, so they have the resources needed to reach children with different learning skills, from different backgrounds, and home environments.
He was also Acting Director of a state agency tasked with handling millions of dollars in grants to non-profit organizations and cities and towns to improve the lives of newcomers by funding citizenship classes and ESL programs. During his time there, he cracked down on wasteful spending and returned a surplus to the agency’s budget.
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.
