Germano Silveira – Contributing Editor, Boston Harbor Picayune

Posted on December 13, 2012 by


When I first met Germano, he was working at a Pizza joint to pay his way through film school. He also always found time to babysit his younger Siblings so that they were never home alone after school before their parents returned from work.

While attending college, he noted things as a student that he felt needed changing, and decided to run for public office. In an upset election, he won a seat on THE 48th BLUE HILLS REGIONAL DISTRICT SCHOOL COMMITTEE.

He remains one of the youngest elected officials in the commonwealth of Massachusetts. While working as a legislative intern and Political Strategist as he earned his degree and started a business.
