Here’s some heartfelt thanks from Ed Flynn – Candidate for District 2 City Council:

As the Preliminary Election has concluded, I would like to extend my best wishes to my neighbors and thank you for the hospitality that you have extended to me, my family, and my supporters as we knocked on doors and made phone calls throughout our district. I have had the pleasure of meeting many new neighbors and becoming re-acquainted with so many longtime friends.   With your help, we gained significant victories in South Boston and Chinatown, and performed strong in every other community in the district.

I would also like to tip my hat to my opponents for campaigning on the issues that affect us and not engaging in the politics of personal destruction. I am proud of this campaign and all of its participants.

Starting in March, I have spoken out on many important issues through public hearings, house parties, literature, press releases and candidate forums. These issues include improving our Boston Public Schools for all families, keeping our streets safe, developing a plan to re-open the Long Island Treatment facility, fighting against overdevelopment in our neighborhoods, parking, elderly housing, and a Bus Rapid Transit plan.

Government serves us best when it takes seriously the legitimate concerns of its citizens and civic organizations. I have not just listened to your concerns, but have been out front and taken the lead on issues affecting our most basic government services.

I promise to keep my commitments to the people of District 2. I will:

  • Do all I can to support our young people and families, especially when it comes to issues such as education, youth fulfillment opportunities and mental and behavioral health;
  • Promise to ensure that our seniors receive the respect and dignity they deserve;
  • Demonstrate my firm belief that the people who reside in a neighborhood should have a say in what happens in their neighborhood;
  • Advocate for collective bargaining and equal pay for equal work.

I thank you for your support and I will work hard to earn your vote on Tuesday, November 7th. I will listen to your concerns, be accessible, and work hard every day to deliver results for all of our neighborhoods.

Sincerely,

Ed Flynn
