BOSTON, MA July 19, 2017 – Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey today announced her support for Mike Kelley’s bid for the District 2 City Council seat. Citing his city government experience and decades of tireless activism in the community, she offered her enthusiastic endorsement of his campaign.
“The people of District 2 have a chance to elect a Councilor who shares our values and will work tirelessly with partners across government to address the challenges we face and the many opportunities before us,” said Healey.
“As City Councilor, Mike Kelley will bring people, organizations and government together to find solutions that help everyone and I look forward to working in partnership with him.”
