SOUTH BOSTON – Ed Flynn, a candidate for Boston City Council District 2, has earned the endorsement of UNITE HERE Local 26 and other local community-based organizations.  This endorsement adds to a list of over 30 other local labor unions that have backed Flynn‘s campaign for City Council.  Just last week, Flynn was endorsed by the Mass Nurses Association.
Flynn said, “I am proud to have the support of Boston’s Local 26 — a union that has fought hard for working families throughout the district.  As your 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 SJC Clerk Maura Doyle.
