Marty Walsh for Mayor!

On October 30, Boston Ward 21 Democratic Committee members voted overwhelmingly to endorse State Representative Martin J. Walsh for Mayor. Members cited many reasons for supporting Walsh, including his progressive record in the legislature and early support for same-sex marriage rights; his commitment to strengthen our public schools and all neighborhoods; and the respect Walsh has earned from his peers, demonstrated by endorsements from former mayoral candidates Felix Arroyo, John Barros and Charlotte Golar Richie and a large and diverse group of elected officials including our Congressman Mike Capuano and State Representatives Kevin Honan and Gloria Fox, who each represent part of Ward 21.

The Committee has also endorsed four candidates for City Council At-Large: Councilor Ayanna Pressley, Annissa Essaibi George, Michael Flaherty and Michelle Wu.

We encourage our neighbors to vote on Tuesday, November 5 and join us in supporting our endorsed candidates. Polls are open 7am-8pm, and you can check your polling place at
