Mayor’s Office


Mayor Galvin was sworn in as Woburn’s 34th Mayor on January 4, 2010—his election to the corner office follows 16 years representing Ward 3 on the City Council and his work as a successful attorney in charge of a thriving downtown Woburn practice.

Mayor Galvin’s approach is rooted in a belief there are always ways to improve ourselves and the community in which we live.  His public service is a well-known outward expression of affection and devotion to his hometown, where he grew up on the city’s West Side and graduated from Woburn High School.  He went on to earn an undergraduate business management degree from Providence College, and then a law degree from the New England School of Law.

He is married to Eileen (Perry), a registered nurse at Massachusetts General Hospital, and together the Galvins have raised their four children, Kayla, Alexi, Robert, and Mackenzie, here in Woburn.
