Honest. Trustworthy. Independent.

Margaret Farmer is the only independent candidate running for District 1’s City Council. As your City Councillor, Margaret will bring a new voice to City Hall, one that reflects the concerns and beliefs of the people of East Boston, Charlestown, and the North End.

I have worked very hard to improve this community as a private citizen and hope you can take a moment to learn about my background and the unique experience I would bring to City Hall.


There are many reasons for someone to run for public office. Like many of you, I have seen this community change and I am frustrated with the direction we’ve headed in. In my opinion, City Hall can be doing more to serve the constituency and only by electing a citizen-candidate can we break away from “politics as usual.”

Development is out of control. Our streets are in constant gridlock. Our schools are facing gross inequality. Our infrastructure is not as energy efficient, or climate resilient as we need it to be.

But this does not have to be the case. I want to share my vision for what steps we need to take and work with you to make it a reality.

I hope to earn your vote on September 26th.
