I look forward to continuing the work we’ve started to ensure that every child receives a strong education, every family has access to affordable homes, and that we create good-pay jobs for all Bostonians.”

“I am honored to be supporting our mayor who has looked at our city, and has studied it. On every decision he makes, I know he has the people of Boston’s back. We are lucky to have such a committed public servant. I also had the distinct honor of serving with the mayor in the house and senate, and we carried the laborers’ agenda together for the state of Massachusetts.”
