Dear Friends, Today I am announcing my candidacy for Boston City Council At-large. I am excited to get started and I need you! Please join my campaign to Bring Boston Back. Together!
I am running for City Council because, now more than ever, Boston needs leaders who understand the urgency of getting our kids and teachers safely back in classrooms, our local businesses up and thriving again, and our good jobs back to stay.Recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic may be the greatest challenge our City has ever faced. I am ready to work together with everyone who believes that Boston’s future is bright, but only if we are united in our common purpose of a better city for all.
Our city is hurting. As a 25-year Boston Public School educator, I know our families and our young people. I know our teachers and first responders and nurses. I know our mail carriers and our sanitation workers and our restaurant owners. 50 years living and raising a family in Dorchester has taught me a lot, but the most important lesson I’ve learned about Boston is this: We keep going. We do our best. We aren’t afraid to stand up and work hard. Whether it’s shoveling out after a blizzard, raising money for a family in need, or committing ourselves to peace during times of unrest, Boston people take care of each other.
There is a place for you in my campaign because there is a place for you in Boston.Wherever you are, from Readville to Brighton, from Maverick Square to Mission Hill, and whenever you and your family arrived here, whether a hundred years ago or last month — YOU ARE NEEDED and you are why Boston will recover and succeed, better than ever, in the months ahead. I will meet you where you are.
Join me as we work TOGETHER to meet Boston's bright future — for our school kids, our elders, our veterans, our working people, and all our families and friends! Please visit my website erinforboston.com and sign up to be an important part of Bringing Boston Back. Together.
