Leadership + Accountability
Since coming into Office in 2020, Mayor Lungo-Koehn has led the City with the same philosophy that she brought to the City Council – that transparency, honesty, hard work, and the people of Medford come first.
Leading the City through the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021 was an unexpected challenge, especially for a first term Mayor, but through leadership, advocacy, and collaboration, the City of Medford emerged as a statewide leader on many fronts throughout the pandemic. Medford Public Schools were among the first in the state to get students back in the classroom safer and sooner, and was the first city to implement a novel pooled testing program through a partnership with Tufts University. As of July 2021, Medford’s vaccination rates continue to outpace the state average, with more than 80% of residents vaccinated.
Other accomplishments and achievements since January 2020 include: developing Medford’s first comprehensive multi-year Capital Improvement Plan, launching the first community-driven Comprehensive Plan process to create a 30 year vision for our future, bringing Medford’s parking enforcement in-house, working to improve conditions at our City’s fire stations and parks, hired the City’s first economic development director, advanced charter review, reworked the City’s budget process – receiving the City’s first Distinguished Budget Award in the process – and more.
Mayor Lungo-Koehn is also dedicated to and deeply involved in the community at large. Breanna and her husband David both coach several youth sports teams in the city. Breanna is active with Girls on the Run, an organization that builds confidence in diverse groups of young women through training for a 5k. She has also been active with Portal to Hope, a non-profit that helps victims of domestic violence.
Breanna and David have three children: Bayley, Kaliway, and Kody.
