As we enter the countdown to September 26th, I realize how much I am loving running for office. I treasure every opportunity to meet people and discuss issues, brainstorm ideas for improving the lives of residents and see parts of the city up close I hadn’t considered before.
I have become a regular user of water transportation to get around the district and snapped a few photos on the way home late one night during the campaign. Boston is a beautiful and amazing city, I am happy to also call it home.
I believe your City Councilor should work to improve your life. Not just in small ways, like potholes and crosswalks. But in big ways that can protect and promote businesses, improve your quality of life by giving you more time with family and ensure you have the city services you need.
Yesterday, I worked on one of those issues with elected officials, state agencies, and community stakeholders. A “Boston Inner Harbor Ferry” that connected all communities on the waterfront would reduce traffic, and provide more, faster options for those traveling to and from Charlestown, East Boston and the North End.
I have a confession to make. I am having a “milestone” birthday this year. And months ago someone asked me how I wanted to celebrate. I replied I REALLY wanted to walk in a parade. Imagine my excitement level when I realized that while running for Boston City Councilor, District 1 I am able to walk in the Charlestown, Bunker Hill Day Parade!
It was better than I had expected! Thank you to my great volunteers!
