Hello! I'm Delmarina López, a passionate advocate, devoted public servant, and proud City Councilor for the City of Chicopee. Raised in this vibrant community and a product of Chicopee Public Schools, I am living proof of what one can achieve through hard work and determination. My journey has taken me from being a first-generation college graduate to obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Bay Path University and a Juris Doctor from Western New England University School of Law. Inspired by a deep-seated commitment to social justice, I am dedicated to creating a brighter future for our city.
My commitment to community service led me to my current role as a City Councilor, where I represent the neighborhood I grew up in, Ward 3 in Willimansett. I've been given the responsibility to serve as the Chair of the Water Resource Committee; the Vice Chair of the Recreation Committee, Claims and Accounts Committee, and Education Committee; and a member of the Public Safety Committee/Police Commission, Resort Casinos and Gaming Committee, Zoning Committee, and Communications Committee.
In addition to my public service, I'm also the founder of Delmarina Lopez Consulting, where I leverage my skills to support small to mid-sized businesses. I have gained valuable experience in managing operations, balancing budgets, creating jobs, and advocating for our residents. My passion for supporting local businesses is a significant part of how I give back to our community, as I help them navigate the often complex and inaccessible processes that they face.
I was proud to be the youngest person to serve as an intern for the Governor of Massachusetts' Western Mass Office when I was just 16. My involvement in social justice didn't stop there. I served in leadership roles during my time at Bay Path University and Western New England University School of Law. I also served our community while working at the Secretary of States’ Western Mass Office.
I’m an Educator, Attorney, City Councilor, and small business owner. I’m also a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and a board member at the YWCA of Western MA. My work and dedication to community service and equity has earned me recent recognition as an honoree for Latino 30 Under 30 for El Mundo Boston 2022 and Business West 40 Under Forty Class of 2023.
As your Mayor, I will bring this same dedication and passion for service and equity to our city. I'm ready to lead, and I'm ready to serve.
