Congratulations to Ayanna Pressley

Congratulations to Ayanna Pressley, who earned a spot on the November 3 general election ballot for one of four at-large seats on the Boston City Council.

Our PAC endorsed Ayanna Pressley this summer, and a number of us had a great time supporting her out in the field yesterday.

Many of us are familiar with Ayanna's exemplary, collaborative approach and can-do style in connecting the residents of Boston and the state to resources and services, as an Aide to former Congressman Joseph Kennedy and Senator John Kerry. She also served as a former board member of MWPC and she is a Wonder Woman Award recipient.

Ayanna will not only bring new leadership and new vision to the office, but she also brings proven, problem solving qualities and a life-long dedication to public service that will translate to even greater service to the families of Boston during these most challenging times. In addition, she would be the first woman of color ever to serve and only the third woman elected at-large in the Council's 100 year history.
