Edwards Alone in Filing for Re-election in District 1; Crowded at-large Field

Councilor Lydia Edwards has pulled her Nomination Papers for re-election to District 1 City Council this week, and so far she is alone in the effort.

Edwards and his campaign began gathering signatures on April 30 so as to get her name on the ballot for the September or November elections.

The incumbents include Michael Flaherty of South Boston; Althea Garrison of Dorchester; AnnissaEssaibi George of Dorchester; and Michelle Wu of Roslindale.
