David Biele, a lifelong South Boston resident and local attorney running in the Democratic Primary for State Representative, has been endorsed by Dorchester-based Laborers Local 223. Biele is running for State Representative for the 4th Suffolk District – a seat that was recently vacated by former Rep. Nick Collins when he was elected to the State Senate this spring.
This endorsement is the first labor endorsement in the 2018 campaign to represent the South Boston and Dorchester district on Beacon Hill.
Biele said, “I am honored to have been endorsed by Laborers Local 223. As someone who grew up in a union family here in South Boston, I was taught the value of hard work and community engagement. I know how much organized labor does to support working families and retirees throughout our communities. As State Representative, I will be committed to supporting job creation and economic opportunity in our neighborhoods, investing in our public schools, supporting our seniors and veterans, and giving the community a loud voice in government.”
Biele is a lifelong resident of South Boston where he has been deeply engaged with local community-based organizations. He serves on the board of the Harry McDonough Sailing Center and is actively involved with the South Boston Boys & Girls Club, South Boston Special Kids and Young Adults, and TEAM Mentoring Program through Catholic Charities’ Labouré Center. Biele was a longtime staffer to Nick Collins in his State Representative Office, working on policy, legislation, and constituent services. He is a graduate of Boston Latin School, Boston College, and Boston College Law School.
