Stephen Passacantilli’s campaign for Boston City Council District 1 has announced a major milestone. This past week, the campaign knocked on their 8,000th door and leads all other campaigns in social media engagement with over 1,300 Facebook followers.
Passacantilli is a North End civic leader, Boston Public Schools parent, and former staffer to City Councilor Sal LaMattina.
Passacantilli said, “I am so proud of the strong grassroots campaign we are building. We’ve been out knocking on doors and calling voters in East Boston, Charlestown, and the North End, and the response has been incredible. As past head of my local neighborhood council, I know how important it is to hear directly from residents about the issues that matter to them. That’s why we’re so focused on going directly to residents to discuss our platform and hear their concerns. As a lifelong Bostonian with kids in the Boston Public Schools, I’ll bring a unique perspective and experience to the Boston City Council. Residents of District 1 deserve a City Councilor who will take the lead on issues like public safety, education, addiction and recovery, and development. On the City Council, I will always put you first.”
Just last month, Passacantilli became the only candidate to open campaign offices in each of the district’s three neighborhoods.
Many know Passacantilli from his years of public service across Boston. He is a lifelong resident of the North End where he has been deeply involved as past president of his local civic association and through local charities and community organizations like North End Against Drugs (NEAD) and the North End Beautification Committee. Passacantilli is also an active Boston Public Schools parent and serves on the board of the Gavin Foundation.
Passacantilli and his wife, Renee, are raising their two children, Grace and Evan, just around the corner where he grew up in the North End.
