I’m voting for….
With less than 24 hour until election day, we have received numerous letters of support for political candidates from residents of South Boston. We will feature these letters in the hopes it will help the undecided voters make a decision. If you would like to share your support for your candidate, you can email us at [email protected].
Our next letter in this series is in support of John Connolly, candidate for mayor.
Some statistics are showing that the US economy will be overtaken by China as the world’s largest as soon as 2016. Other statistics can point to US household incomes peaking 25 years ago which makes life more challenging for our generation. What does this have to do with a Mayoral election? Everything! We need to re-build from the ground up; every city, county and state. We need to do this so we can compete with countries like China. We need to do this so our generation ends up with a better lifestyle than our parents and puts our children on the right path to eclipse us. John Connolly will upend the status quo; this on the surface is scary but necessary if we are going to lead. It may be scary to unions, but no one is against what unions stand for (the Middle Class) and we need independent leadership in city hall to balance power with those of us who are not union and keep us living here. Boston has been at the forefront of history on many occasions. It may not be thrilling, it will be tough and a lot of work, but let us lead the nation on education. Success and reform here will transform our city and provide the skills needed for our next generation to flourish and compete on the world stage. Let’s not miss this opportunity. Vote John Connolly.
