Welcome to the official Linda Dean Campbell website!
Linda Dean Campbell first became involved with politics as an environmental activist who successfully represented Methuen in a two-year running fight to prevent the construction of a massive gas/coal fired electrical generation plant on the Merrimack River on the Methuen / Dracut border. As a result of this very successful endeavor, she was encouraged by her neighbors to run for City Council where she topped the ticket and served with distinction for six years. Similarly, because of her record of accomplishments on City Council, she was encouraged by her community to run for State Representative when the seat opened up.
Legislature Send Gun Safety Bill to Governor
BOSTON – I am proud of the work and compromise that was required to pass a comprehensive gun violence legislation which for the first time provides local authorities, in conduction with the court system, an avenue to deny a firearm identification (FID) card, authorizes licensed gun dealers to access criminal offender record information (CORI) and established a groundwork for improving school safety.
This legislation is supported by the MA Gun Owner's Action League (GOAL) because it streamlines the licensing and sale and purchase of legal firearms, applies a strong appeals process for denial of a license, requires the approval and denial authority to prove reasons for denial before the courts. In sum, this legislation targets illegal gun ownership, not legal ownership.
