Thank you Boston!
It was an honor to run for District 2 but also share the stage with six other brave and inspiring candidates. I learned so much from each of them. I congratulate Mike Kelley and Ed Flynn for running outstanding campaigns and coming out on top in Tuesday's Preliminary Election.
To my friends, family, and neighbors who believed in me, voted for me, held signs, and knocked on doors for me, I'm so grateful for your support. Our conversations about transportation, education and equity made Boston stronger but we must continue this dialogue.
We also must work to improve voter participation and civic engagement on the local level. Only 14% of registered voters in Boston cast a ballot on Tuesday and that's a real shame. We've got some work to do for better turnout in the future and you can bet I'm committed to improving this.
Thank you again Boston! Every journey needs to start somewhere and this was just the beginning.
