Rosy Gonzalez Speers is a long-time political operative and strategist who has worked with clients in Massachusetts, Maryland, Alabama, Texas, Illinois, and Florida. Notably, she was Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick’s Finance and Political Director and managed his political committee. Rosy has been working in democratic politics for about 15 years, most recently with the Win company. She has operated as an independent general consultant for six years, building and executing strategic plans for campaigns, corporations, and non-profits.
Whether it’s managing multi-million dollar media budgets for the Florida Democratic Party to managing the national surrogacy of Massachusetts’ first Black governor to managing crucial ad campaigns for an underdog Black Congresswoman from Illinois, Rosy has used her skills of organization to deftly navigate systems that oftentimes resist change. But she’s used to fighting for and winning a seat at the table.
Raised in the Bronx to working-class Dominican parents, she moved in middle school to tiny Somersworth, New Hampshire, and was raised with her two sisters by their single mother. It was there she got her first real taste of maneuvering within different cultures, and the two different Americas. She also got her first taste of politics, winning a write-in campaign for class president.
Rosy is a first-generation American from the Dominican Republic. She graduated from Simmons College in Boston and attended the Arabic Language Institute in Cairo, Egypt. Rosy lives between Boston and Miami with her husband Chris, little boys Mateo and Lucas, and their dog Enzo.
