About Ian

Ian is a fourth generation resident of Quincy, MA. His roots go back to when his family first moved to the city from Ireland. Home for them was on Myrtle Street. A proud graduate of Wollaston Elementary and Central Middle Schools, and an alumnus of the Quincy Recreation Staff, it is Ian’s honor to work for the community that has given him so much.

Ian has served as the Ward 3 City Councilor since 2016. He lives in Quincy with his partner, Larry, and they live just around the corner from each of their parents.
