Anthony Andronico understands Quincy. A lifelong resident of Quincy, he has family in every neighborhood throughout the city and is a graduate of Quincy Public Schools. After High School, Anthony attended Emmanuel College where he studied Political Science and Economics. During these four years Anthony immersed himself in the community and made a commitment to strong relationships, ethical values, and service to others.
During the campaign for School Committee Anthony made a promise to inform the community of all School Committee news and has made good on this promise by consistently posting updates to his Facebook page. For the FY20 budget, Anthony published an article in the Quincy Sun and produced a video asking Quincy residents for their input and perspective on what the School Committee should prioritize. He has also made a commitment to have Quincy Public Schools play a larger role in lowering the cost of continuing your education by offering more college credit classes, and by continuing to strengthen our Vocational program offerings.
Anthony's work experience has prepared him for this role and the challenges that come with it. After college he worked for Mass Insight -- a company that forged partnerships across industry, academia, and government to address issues in education and financial services. Specifically, in education, Mass Insight partnered with gateway cities to close the achievement and opportunity gap by increasing AP participation, bolstering organizational structures and streamlining processes, and partnering with the community. Anthony then worked for Forrester, a business technology research and advisory firm that provides best practices to businesses, with their Leadership Boards team. Anthony now serves as the Communications Director for a Massachusetts State Senator and is well-prepared to keep up with the latest legislation changes that impact Quincy Public Schools. In his current role, Anthony continues to learn about the functions and mechanisms of municipal and state government.
His personal experience with our schools, his family's deep roots in the city that stretch over five generations, and his experience with the functions of government make Anthony uniquely positioned to move Quincy forward. Anthony has a deep commitment to his role as a Quincy School Committee Member and is always looking for comments, questions, and concerns about our system so that we can constantly improve.
