Passacantilli spoke to hundreds of supporters at his election night party at the Charlestown Knights of Columbus. He said, “I am so grateful to have such incredible support from my neighbors in East Boston, Charlestown, and the North End. Our campaign has been about bringing people together and getting things done for our communities. I’m so proud of tonight’s result, but this election is only the beginning, and we need to keep fighting hard until November 7th.”
