Jessica Giannino was elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 2020.

Jessica began her career in politics as a City Councilor At-Large for the City of Revere in 2012. In that time, she has worked on countless issues that impact the daily lives of the citizens of Revere, as well as ordinances that will impact generations to follow. In 2013 her inclusive style and strong leadership qualities prompted her colleagues to elect her Vice President of the Council.  In 2016 and 2018, Jessica had the honor of serving as City Council President. During that time, she worked to ensure the agenda maintained a balance between protecting and growing the city’s economic base, without compromising the quality of city services to residents. Jessica believes it is her responsibility to ensure that Revere’s government is accountable to the people, financially responsible and forward thinking.

Jessica graduated from Revere High with honors in 2010 and Salem State University with a Bachelor of Arts in English in 2014. While at Salem State, she continued to be involved by serving as the Vice President of the Student Government Association, President of the Student Commuter Association, and member of the honors societies Sigma Tau Delta and Pi Lambda Theta.

As a fourth generation Revere resident, Jessica was raised in a family of civil servants. Public safety has always been an important focus for her.
