Acting Mayor Kim Janey has been endorsed by Suffolk County Register of Probate Felix D. Arroyo and Councilor Ricardo Arroyo in the 2021 Boston mayoral race.
“Boston deserves a mayor like Kim Janey, and I am proud to endorse her candidacy,” said Register Arroyo. “I first met Kim over 20 years ago when I was a member of the Boston School Committee, where I saw her advocacy for quality public schools for all students. As a member of the Boston City Council and now as Mayor, Kim has continued to fight for justice and equity for all. I know Kim’s heart and I know her values. She is the right person to lead our City, and I will be working hard to elect her to a full term. I ask that you join me.”
“I am enthusiastically endorsing Kim Janey for Mayor,” said Councilor Arroyo. “I have worked with Kim as my colleague on the Boston City Council and as our Mayor. Kim has been a strong progressive partner in our work to address racial and systemic inequities in both roles, and I know she shares my values. As our Mayor, she has met the moment and shown a commitment to ensuring that Boston is a city that works for everyone — whether by increasing accountability and transparency at the Boston Police Department, joining forces with the Council to create a participatory city budget process or standing for equity in all of our public schools.”
“I couldn’t be more proud to have earned the endorsements of two of Boston’s great warriors on the front lines of the fight for justice and equity in our City — Suffolk County Register of Probate Felix D. Arroyo and Boston City Councilor Ricardo Arroyo,” said Mayor Janey. “Felix is a legendary and groundbreaking leader who has, for decades, been a steadfast champion for every resident of the city. Ricardo has brought his passion, his commitment and his advocacy for those who are too often unseen and unheard in Boston to the City Council — fighting for them every single day. I thank them both for their service and their support of my campaign to build a more equitable, just and resilient Boston.”
