My name is Amanda Linehan, and I am proud to represent Ward 3 on the Malden City Council. I’m a working mom, a homeowner, and a proud progressive voice for the future of Malden. I care deeply about our community and it is my mission to work hand in hand with neighbors to craft the kind of city we all want our children to grow up in.

I can’t wait to meet you!
