At a meeting of the Charlestown Democratic Ward Committee on October 6th, committee members endorsed three candidates for At-Large City Council seats: current Councilors Ayanna Pressley and Michelle Wu along with challenger Annissa Essaibi-George. These three candidates—along with incumbent Councilors Stephen Murphy and Michael Flaherty—will compete for four At-Large Council seats in the municipal election on November 3rd.
A sizeable crowd gathered at Sullivan’s Pub on Main Street to hear from the candidates, four of whom appeared in person to make their pitch for endorsement (Councillor Pressley could not attend, but she sent a staff member from her office). State Senator Sal DiDomenico, State Rep. Dan Ryan, and District 1 City Councilor Sal LaMattina were also in attendance to hear from the candidates and talk with local residents.
“We are excited to endorse these three candidates for At-Large City Council seats,” says Ward Committee Chairman Chris Remmes. “The strong turnout for our Ward Committee meeting demonstrates that Charlestown Democrats are energized about the upcoming election and eager to hear from local elected officials about their views on critical issues.”
All registered voters are encouraged to vote in the Boston municipal election on November 3rd. For more information about the election, or to locate your polling place, visit www.wheredoivotema.com.
