 SOUTH BOSTON – Ed Flynn, candidate for Boston City Council District 2, has been endorsed by the Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA).  Just last week, Flynn was endorsed by the Boston Firefighters, and he has earned the support of over 30 other local labor unions.
The MNA is one of the largest unions in Massachusetts with over 23,000 members, working to improve and increase accessibility to health care services and foster high standards of nursing practice, education, and research.
Megan Collins of the Mass Nurses Association said,  “The Massachusetts Nurses Association is proud to endorse Ed Flynn for Boston City Council.  Ed Flynn understands what’s important to working women and men across Boston.  He has been a dedicated supporter of the thousands of nurses in Boston, and we know that he will continue to be a strong, independent voice for families throughout the district.  There’s a lot at stake in this race, and we know that Ed Flynn is the right choice for District 2.”
Flynn said, “I am so honored to have the Mass Nurses supporting my candidacy for Boston City Council.  Every day, our nurses are on the front lines saving lives and taking care of those in need.  As City Councilor, I will work on behalf of all residents and communities in District 2 to ensure that our streets are safe, that our kids can go to great public schools, that our seniors have access to services and programming, and that we’re tackling quality of life issues like traffic, transportation, and housing.”
In addition to the 30+ unions supporting Flynn, he has also been endorsed by Congressman Stephen F. Lynch, State Representative Nick Collins, Boston City Councilor At-Large Michael Flaherty, and Suffolk County Clerk of Courts Michael Donovan.

    I want to thank Ed Flynn for joining his Dad in the call to restore Long Island as a place of safety, care and healing for Boston’s most vulnerable.
