Ed Flynn, candidate for Boston City Council District 2, has been endorsed by prominent local unions and organizations, including AFSCME Council 93, IBEW Local 2222, Ironworkers Local 7, and NAGE.
These endorsements add to a growing list of elected officials and residents supporting Flynn, including Chinese Progressive Political Action, Mass Nurses Association, Boston’s Unite Here Local 26, Congressman Stephen F. Lynch, Suffolk County SJC Clerk Maura Doyle, and State Representative and Democratic State Committee member Nick Collins.
Flynn said, “I am honored to have the support of such a broad-based coalition of residents and local organizations backing our campaign for City Council. Since kicking off our campaign in the South End and South Boston in the winter, we’ve campaigned hard across the entire district, and I’m so grateful for the incredible support we’ve received. We’re all in this together, and as your City Councilor, I will be a vocal advocate for issues that matter to residents in each and every community in District 2 – making sure that our streets are safe, improving our Boston Public Schools for all families, standing up for seniors, eliminating the gender wage gap, and expanding paid family medical leave.”
