Today was an excellent day! In addition to door knocking, events, calling and notes to supporters I was able to visit the Piers Park Sailing Center! This community institution offers summer camp, sailing classes and employment opportunities for East Boston and surrounding communities. It was wonderful speaking with the leadership to learn more about their needs and vision for the future, and talk to the kids about why the programs are great for them. This race has been long and hard, but some days, some experiences, remind you why it is all worth it.
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.
Door knocked in East Boston before the thunderstorm hit, then attended City Councillor Annissa Essaibi George’s campaign kickoff at friend Phil Frattaroli’s new Cunard Tavern.
The thunder and rain hit (did it ever !) but inside was friendship and conversation with many Jeffries Point neighbors as well as our local elected leaders as well as with Annissa.
We door knocked in two different neighborhoods today and had a terrific response. It’s July now, and people are committing to vote for me. I thank them all, honored to have earned your support!
