Meet on the Street

It being high summer, the street outdoors has as often been our meet and greet place as not. Door knocking continues, of course, but if you meet me outside on your sidewalk, don’t be surprised!

Harbor Ferry Planning

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.

Governor’s Latino Community Advisory Commission

Attended the swearing in of the state’s Latino Community Advisory Commission by the Governor.

#CouncilDistrict1 is home to one of our state’s largest and most dynamic Latino communities (several communities, actually) and its advancement is a significant mission for every politician from our District.

I will be working closely with local Commission members to see that mission fulfilled. Thanks in particular to new Commissioner Regla Gonzalez for all she does to help Latino Bostonians to achieve their aspirations.

Touring Schools in D1

An amazing morning touring schools in District 1 with Tommy Welch. Learning more about the improvements coming to BPS, and the frustrations of parents. I am so impressed and grateful for the commitment and passion of our teachers and principals I met today!

I look forward to working with you even more! Please consider voting for me on September 26!


Thank you to everyone who joined us at Maverick Marketplace for our campaign kickoff!

New Shoes

Before I embarked on this wonderful journey, and even after I started I solicited the advice of friends, neighbors, elected officials, and community and non profit leaders. I received support, advice, and commitments.

The piece of advice I received the most? Get a great pair of shoes, you are going to be walking the district. Good advice, less than seven days in and I’ve walked almost 30 miles across East Boston, Charlestown and the North End.

Many more miles to go! I can’t wait to see you out there!


Thank you for visiting my campaign website! I will work for the citizens of Charlestown, East Boston and the North End on the issues that are most important to YOU. During this campaign, I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible! My email address is: I hope to earn your vote in the September 26th Primary!

It’s Official!
